I've been meaning to say the following for some time now:

Dear Firefoxy Ladies and Laddies,

I have no idea why my little blogchild is being mangled, distorted, and abused by Firefox. This has happened several times in pphistory but eventually seems to correct itself. We regret any disorientation, nausea, and the like this might cause you. We are bearing up as stoically as possible, which is to say, not very well.

Sincerely,
pplist, aka "pplist"
