Apparently the planet Venus has a pair of perpetual tornadoes centered around its poles. Look at the thermal images from the Venus Express probe. See?
Like the planet Venus, this site has been enduring a destructive anomaly–a state of perpetually suspended repair that has now lasted nigh on three months, and which thankfully now is drawing to a close. I’ve reached a stage of satisfaction sufficient for me to announce the vortex officially dissipated. I was thinking seriously about dropping back to the main index format, having all the enties appear in order regardless of category on a single main page. I decided I like this way better. So huzzah. Everything more or less works now–the new menubar links, the monthly archives, the search feature. Try it!
