    No comment numbers, no comment links. That makes me a sad panda.

    Well, that’s gonna take a bit of time getting used to…

    Incidentally, good luck with the fumigation.

    Will I be the first person whose ugly mug shows in an avatar?

    (Shame there’s no way to link to or cite comments.)

    Urgh, locations aren’t linked, but given in plain text – looks like a gremlin (bug) that needs attending to.

    Hope you find WordPress easier to work with; we use it at Sciblogs.

    I’m sure that Ms. Smith will be less then amused by the discussion on the attached link.

    OK, the new server has some serious security issues. As well as the spammer infestation (the scale and speed of which is morbidly impressive) I just got redirected to Fuckbook.

    “Detection of MLVs in CFS.

    So the Okeefe lab seems to be playing the contamination = RealVirusezISwear! game as well? Umm…hurray?

    Also, check out the paper they cite in their blog. It specifically says that they cannot actually say whether the MLV-like sequences actually came from the blood samples. Lovely to put out such…conclusive(?) data.

    Even better– That paper says they cant find LTRs. They cant find pol. They cant find env. A retrovirus without LTRs, pol, or env! How intriguing!

    But sometimes they ‘found gag’… but then they couldnt later find gag. And sometimes ‘gag’ turned out to be non-specific amplification of human DNA. And sometimes ‘gag’ was mouse DNA. And in all other times, they ‘found gag’… which was only a nucleotide or two different from endogenous mouse viruses (Lo et al).

    The paper doesnt overhype or overstate what they found– the Kooks are. *surprise*

    Abbie. I notice the RSS feed URL is changed.

    What…… This new look. So strange.

    Speaking of gag, this new layout makes my asshole want to suck a lemon.

    Also, my tranferred default name is ‘chrome autofill settings’ (well, not really, but that’s how the format here makes it look).

    I’ve sucked a ton of dick in my life, and I’m nowhere near as gay looking as this place. You’d think being a homo-hippy van would somehow make me happy; it doesn’t.

    As it always will be sadly. Are you going to be able to get your old logo back up? It would be a shame to lose that one.

    You can still hack the comment links yourself. View source, find an id enclosing the comment, append #id to the page url.

    OK, thats weird. For three days, it didnt change at all, and then as soon as I post something, it did. Maybe it doesnt update if you havent ‘logged in’? Dunno.
