Although I view superfluous and (particularly) annoying text as being the lifeblood of this website, I will attempt to remedy the situation. I did not know about it because I use Firefox, where the problem does not manifest. I think I have cleared it up in the thread on history. Please let me know.

So, I get all the lovely new visitors that I need, thanks to my old friends Theodore and Evadne Google.
