Bad Request

That was the message I got Sunday afternoon, when I tried to put the final touches to the Post. It may not be obvious, but there is quite some editing and preparation going into each issue, and the only way to check whether it all works, is to sign into h2g2 and preview. At first, all went OK, although hootoo had been very slow for me for the last few days. But the Bad Request message stopped me in my tracks. I switched to a different browser, but to no avail. I emailed the Team, and to my relief KB was around and offered to help. I asked him to upload everything in case I wouldn't be able to do it myself. Knowing all in his capable hands I spent a nice afternoon and only tried again late in the evening. By then the problem had solved itself, but it is frustrating that I can't really take part in conversations at day time. It only gets better later in the evenings. I still haven't found out what causes it. Maybe it is my provider after all.

Contributing to the Post is never a bad request, and we are delighted to announce that two more contributors have a nice, shiny new Post Reporter Badge on their personal spaces: RodtheBrit, and The Reluctant Gaijin. You can find their respective fifth articles below, as well as all the other articles and cartoons of our Post authors old and new. It's a good mixture again to cater for all tastes. Enjoy.

"The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a wholly remarkable book. It has been compiled and recompiled many times and under many different editorships. It contains contributions from countless numbers of travellers and researchers."
