If anyone is experiencing difficulties accessing this blog or receiving the email updates, it is because the people who provide the blogger site have been experiencing outages because of glitches during maintenance. If you are a subscriber and have not received your daily Bytes by email, that will probably be the cause.
For the same reason I may need to repost yesterday's items in that they are missing from the blog. The error message received from Blogger, the blog provider, is that all posts after a certain time yesterday had to be removed and are being put back. If not restored, I will repost later.
