The woman who had sex with hundreds of men and then wrote about it is in Sydney for the writers' festival. Margaret Simons caught up with her.

Way to go, Margaret! How long did it take?

Millet looks positivly smug.

Of course, she's French.

They could have used her when the US Fleet came into town and wore out all of the Aussie hookers.

Millet is proof that the French do, indeed, prefer screwing the masses.

One thing that's been bothering me ever since people started switching to MT...

Why the heck does the background keep getting drawn over the text?

Whenever I first look at any comment, I get a blank screen like this. I have to select the text (like this) in order to make it show up. The text stays around after I deselect it, but any spots I pass my mouse cursor over again vanish again.

I don't know if it's the javascript crap on my end, or on MT's end, but MT sites seem to be the only ones affected by it.

It's the fricken' style sheet. All the default ones that come with MT have that problem. We hates them! I'll fix it.

It's also an IE 6 bug involving css apparently. I have it happen to me on other blogs. I'm researching a fix.

Thanks, Andrea!

I've never had it happen to me on anything but MT blogs, but then, I'm not that into blogging...
