There is no saddle. There is only my trusty Navajo blanket, and my 1873 Winchester with a saddle ring and nothing to tie it to.
I am going to try a variety of things with increasing impact on the site.
Trust that by noon tomorrow, we WILL have a stable site, but it may not look like what we have now.
Just keep posting, keep having fun, and if you can’t post, go to The U Tree or Marica’s.
I will inform as needed.
Geronimo has said “enough of this shit”.

You will recall a lot of strange site changes before midnight last night.
Here is an update about what went on.
After backing up the site – a back-up to which we returned later – I attempted to restore several older backups, to see if I could get rid of various site problems, which appeared to be due to some corruption of the underlying code.
As you saw, this resulted in fast but very effective CHAOS on your end. Not a problem – I needed the information I got.
These attempts ALL failed to correct the problem.
After restoring the site, including Dep Pat’s scheduled post, I investigated more deeply, and discovered that there is a small but significant problem – the underlying site software has a tiny issue that throws WordPress. Thank G_d for the internet – I found exactly what I needed to fix.
This may have happened because during the operations at our host, we were MOVED, or some other similar environmental changes took place. In any case, WORDPRESS was not amused by a small but important change.
I have notified our host, COUGHCOUGH.com, of the problem.
Now – I need this problem fixed quickly, and it’s an easy fix, but it is also one that I cannot do myself. If it is NOT fixed soon, then I am going to take a DIFFERENT “Geronimo action”, so that we can get back to work A.S.A.P.
