Is it just me, or does the site have a problem?

Every time I click on one of the regional threads, or a new diary, the new page loads and is displayed for only 3 to 5 seconds before it is replaced by a page which is blank apart from the ‘blogads’ strip down the left-hand side of the page.  My machine displays this page indefinitely, indicating that it has not completed the download.  I can click the browser’s ‘back’ button and restore the page I want perfectly.

Strikes me something may not be working.  I’ve got a broadband connection and I’m browsing with Firefox on a Windows XP OS with plenty of computing power.  I haven’t had this problem before today on this site, and i don’t have the problem with other sites.

Anybody else have similar problems?

Govt Employees May Have Falsified Yucca Mtn Docs

Fake news, fake documents. What else is new.


But, David Hobson, R-Ohio, chair of the House Appropriations subcommittee that controls the dollars for Yucca Mountain, says “the problem did not appear too serious and that he did not think it would throw Yucca Mountain off track.”


Nothin’ here, folks. Keep movin’ along.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Government employees may have falsified documents related to the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste project in Nevada, the Energy Department said Wednesday. The disclosure could jeopardize the project’s ability to get a federal permit to operate the dump.

During preparation for a license application to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the department said it found a number of e-mails from 1998 through 2000 in which an employee of the U.S. Geological Survey “indicated that he had fabricated documentation of his work.” …

Give ’em hell, Harry

In a statement, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the development “proves once again that DOE must cheat and lie in order to make Yucca Mountain look safe.”
