Blog housekeeping

Dispatch from the road (a Panera’s, actually): Formatting oddities

From deep in Northwest Ohio, where at my in-laws’ house there is no Internet access save for dialup (and then it’s a toll call), I’ve managed to find a Panera’s. I’ve also managed to notice that, for some reason, if you’re using Safari, you may not be seeing my spiffy “repost” logo that’s supposed to appear in the upper left hand corner of each repost from the old blog, for reasons that I haven’t figured out yet. However, on Firefox it works OK. Please let me know if it does or does not show up for you on your browswer in the comments here, and when I get better Internet access in a day or two I’ll see if I can fix the problem. (I’ll also probably post something as well.)

In the meantime, I hope you’re enjoying the “Classic Insolence” from the old blog that I’ve set up to post in my absence…

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
