This stinking blog-hack is driving me crazy.

Posting format is all screwed around; either the html is not there or runs riot; text runs together with no breaks, eliminating the ability to create quotes and context; the damn cursor jumps around, making sentences gobbledygook that take twenty edits to fix . . . it's like shooting to wound on the battlefield, knowing that killing the guy doesn't absorb the the resources that leaving him screaming would. . . When I get home, I'm going to be rethinking and redoing this entire business -- new host, new technology (doesn't help that my Dell laptop is slowly shedding functions and dying too) -- for one thing I'm going to try to kiss Google blogger goodbye. I've had it with this shit.

Been reading you on my Kindle Fire tablet (Android OS based), everything looks and reads good here.

No problems reading here either. Never was and I'm in here reading twenty times a day.

Looks fine to me in Firefox, Safari, and Chrome on a Mac. On my Galaxy Android tablet, it looks fine also, but I think Blogger.com changed its mobile format.

Recommend checking out another "blogspot" blog in whatever browser you're using to see if it is messed up also.

I haven't seen any problems either (although granted, you may have repaired them before I get around to viewing). Anon #3 has a good point: check other sites, and you might try to check your posts from another computer. Narrow down the possibilities.

Blogger has been having troubles, so I have given up updating my hobby and history sites until they get it working properly again.

I use Wordpress for my gun and household blog. It is easier to get along with that Blogger so I may change all my blogs over.

And by the way, thanks for all you do.

Looks great on my I pad.
I don't know how you sat through the hearings without shouting or going after someone. The fact that Holder did not say anything about a background check when buying Ak 47 sent me over the top. It was like you could drive through the pick up window, hit the trunk button and they would load them up.
I am beginning to wonder if maybe Holder can not read or write!
It makes me want to go out and buy another gun.

The FBI, among others, are known to have technology to get into Windows-based PC's and observer/control. The Air Force secure Linux in the link above is one way to combat that.

It could be your computer/browser, everything looks O.K.

Your code is all screwed up because you are being ghosted by a hacker. The hacker uses your computer as a gateway into other systems.
What better way than to ghost through and keep an eye on others than through to laptop of one of the nastiests of hobbistsis?

Bet you dollars to donuts the IP address of the hacker is on Pennsylvania Avenue in a particular wing of a certain building.

There are most likely trolls, obots, and agent provocateurs involved working at the IT level inside your service provider who your service provider do not know are operating in their business.

I'm not just guessing at this either either.

By the way, Word Press system has been breached on a number of occasions by the same cast of characters.
Ghosting through your computer gets them a nifty back door.

Looks good here too with firefox. I had a Dell lap top once. Worse damn computer ever. After warranty expired nothing but trouble. Spent lots of money to fix it but still a piece of shit. Finally got pissed and smashed it into a million pieces on my garage floor with a sledge hammer. Problems solved.

While I'm not having any format issues in viewing Sipsey Street, I'd suggest you go to wordpress like WRSA did some time ago.

Much better layout, much more polished look, much better html handling in the comments.

I agree with Pat. WesternRifleShooters went over to wordpress months ago because of the same bs you're dealing with.

FWIW, I've been hosting my blog with wordpress on dreamhost for years with no problems. If you can handle the hosting fees ($9/month + domain name fees) then you'll have much more control over the site.

Technical wise, dreamhost does one-click wordpress (you go to your site control panel and click "Install Wordpress") so you won't have to deal with getting it up and running.

If you do that, there are some addons for Wordpress that you'll want (like wp-cache, for when you get mentioned in the establishment media and avalanched) but for the most part you will be ready to get back to it.

The hard part will be getting the old stuff out of blogger and onto the new site. (At least it was for me about 5 years ago.) Once it is into wordpress, going from one hosting company to another is just an export-import.
