Supernova, seen

With respect to yesterday's post, I've now looked at the right star in the right place with binoculars. Of course, I might be deluding myself, when I say I saw it....

Supernova 'brightens up' 7-8 September - University of Oxford

It's a once in a lifetime chance to see a supernova. If it was earlier, and I was less tired, and had less writing to do, I'd tell you some examples of other supernova which change the course of history.

Even Yarnstorm has comment problems....

I don't have problems on this blog with malicious comments (although another site I run does). But you'd never expect that Yarnstorm, of the pretty pictures and domesticality would?

From her post, loose ends:

:: Yesterday, I put up then took down a post about discovering that someone who had been leaving long, long comments which have caused a kerfuffle (as they say on Little Britain) had done so under three different anonymous/pseudonymous names. The penny dropped when I looked up an IP number and I decided that I was going to play host no longer. I have deleted all his/her comments, and will now be less willing to leave suspect contributions where they can be read. Multiple-identity commenters make a mockery of blog discussions and keeping on top of the incoming comments could turn into a game of Splat the Rat - not something I want to play.
