    What is the deal with WSB? When I click next page it stays on page one but in the address bar it will say page 2, or page 3, and so on. It has been doing this for 2 days at work and home.

    Apologies – it’s a bug created by what otherwise was an improvement we implemented, and I’ve been working on it in the wee hours so that there are fewer people around when the repair attempts temporarily blow up the site :) Appreciate your patience – TR

    Fixed as of early 5/23 …

Sorry, comment time is over.
