Putting the patriots in Patriots Day


Minutemen, members of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Co. a few politicians and some bystanders marched from City Hall to the North End today to commemorate the rides of Paul Revere and William Dawes. The procession stopped at Dawes's grave at King's Chapel Cemetery and at Revere's grave at the Granary Burying Ground, to present a wreath and play taps, before continuing down Bromfield, Washington and Congress streets and then down Hanover into the North End, where a modern-day Paul Revere waited on a horse so that he could take off towards Lexington to warn the colonials.

Good thing they have seven

Good thing they have seven chaplains, assistant chaplains, etc. When they go down in battle, it's good to know they'll have a spiritual advisor there to comfort them.

Or at least when they step up to the bar for a drink, the Padre can bless the glasses for them.

Caching problem on your end

Ron, try holding shift and clicking the refresh button on your browser. It should force your browser to try and re-cache the images. Right now, it sounds like the common problem where you get incorrect info in place of a picture and it just draws the boundary box instead...then when you refresh, it just gets the cached incorrect info on you.

I don't know what to tell you then. It renders fine for me. Try closing your browser completely and reopening it. Seems likely to be an issue with your browser/computer than anything else though.

Can you try


and let me know if that works? If yes, and the images.universalhub.com version still doesn't work, then it's a problem with the content-distribution network I'm using. And if yes, can you let me know which ISP you use, so I can report it to them?


If I can ask a favor

Could you try the UHub logo again and let me know if it's still forbidden? I just purged the image cache on the CDN (unfortunately, I can't check myself because the images are coming up OK for me).

It's forbidden to me just

It's forbidden to me just now, as well. Maybe the CDN is doing something dumb, like barfing if there is no Referer header.
