Can You Read This?

I'm getting reports that some folks are having trouble viewing this blog. It seems to be that as you scroll down, the browswer prevents you from going all the way, possibly throwing up a grey band. I've played on the three computers here, and it seems to only occur in Explorer, not in Mozilla. Also, the problem may date to when I installed StatCounter on my webpage. I'm going to play with it, but I'd like to hear if its happening to anyone on a browser other than IE, and I'd welcome any advice. I can junk statcounter, but it's got its uses.

Update: It appears to be cleared up now. I am amazed at how much I can do knowing absolutely nothing about XML, but you stare at it long enough and go "hmm, why don't I have that bit of nonsense here if I have it here and here? Let's see what happens if you type it in," you can get amazing results. I feel very much like the proverbial Chinese Box thought experiment in action. Anyway, please let me know if this has solved the problem.

Thanks Robert. One or two folks have emailed me offline too. I think it's fixed. I'll leave this post up a week to make sure, and then I'll delete it.
Thanks again.

Also working here - I was having the same problem.

Thanks. I've heard enough to declare it fixed!

I think you can.

I had the same problem with Internet Explorer, so I switched to Firefox and it was OK. Now it's OK on both IE and Firefox.

And sorry not to join in the 'getting medieval on reality's ass' debate: busy, busy, busy. Also, while highly interesting, it covered much of the same ground that we already discussed way back at the Hugo losers party at Interaction.

Have gun at WFC!

Thanks Jetse.
Hey - I just went over proof's of my upcoming anthology, FAST FORWARD, and I read the intro I wrote back in August, and was interested to see how much it read like these posts, up to and including some brief thoughts on whether the techno-gadgetry of modern life occluded the "need" for science fiction.
