Not as disastrous as I had feared.

Mind you, it takes a lot of effort to read every Post article and leave feedback.

If there are 36,000 unique visitors using the Ripley skins, I find that amazing. smiley - wow

Gnomon - time to move on

Can everyone using the Ripley system (Alabaster, Classic Goo, Plain or Brunel) please make sure to use the h2g2.com address rather than the www.h2g2.com address.

If you use www.h2g2.com you're likely to be switched to Pliny quite regularly. If you use h2g2.com, you'll stay in Ripley most of the time.

Gnomon, I use h2g2.com, but I've just checked www.h2g2.com, and both URLs lead me to a Pliny front page, from which I choose Alabaster for my preferences.

Yes, but in www.h2g2.com there are various other places where you'll be brought to Pliny as well and have to change back.

I’m amazed Saying Grace in Latin’s become popular. The humour must be well past it now.
