Title • signal spikes

As much as anything else I'm putting this one up because it's been so long since we've had a clear blue sky that nearly any shot that includes one looks good to me. I'm now officially fed up with the grey, damp miserableness of the UK winter. Oh, and as with yesterday's shot this is taken with my new 100mm macro lens. I'm seriously impressed with the sharpness of this lens and can quite easily understand why many people refuse to shoot with zooms.

Uptade #2: For a few hours last night there were two versions of chromasia, and comments were being received on both. I had hoped that this was indicative of a minor rupture in the space-time continuum, but apparently chromasia was moved from one server to another so for a while there were two versions, one at the old IP address and one at the new one. And because DNS changes take a while to propagate, different people were seeing different versions. So if you posted a comment on this or any other entry, and it's gone, I'm afraid that you were commenting on the old version which is well on its way to becoming defunct.

Oh, and there appears to be something slightly amiss with chromasia at the moment in that I've received notification of at least three comments on this entry yet none of them appear to be showing up, either on the site or in my database. I'll look into it, but if you do post a comment and it doesn't appear, it's a technical hitch rather than anything personal ;-)

Update: This is very weird. When I load chromasia I see that I have 1 comment from jim, and when I check this against my MySQL database it's confirmed. However, I didn't receive the usual email confirmation of Jim's comment. And to add to the confusion: if I use my ftp client to look at the number of comments on this entry it says there are six, and this is confirmed by the number of email notifications I've received. I'm at a loss. If anyone has any idea as to what's going on I'd be grateful.
