  1. R’ Gil,
    i made a mistake the correct address is 1301 East 27th Street, Brooklyn, NY Corner of 27th and M

  2. Gil,
    The commnent counter is messed up. This post showed it had one comment, yet mine appears to be the first one. The home page a moment ago showed that the news & links had 55 comments, but on this page it shows 53 comments. The recent brain death post has shown 27, 28 and 29 comments, but each time I go there are the same comments.

  3. No, yours is second. Maybe you need to refresh you browser or something.

  4. Yes, for some reason this comment system requires users to manually refresh the page quite regularly. Simply going to another page and coming back is not enough.

  5. I did refresh (though I now see a previous comment as well). I think this probably has to do with the problem of comments disappearing for a while after they are posted, which has been noted in the past. But it is rather irritating not to be able to use the comment tally to know if there have been new comments.

  6. Skeptic,
    I just now figured that out. Totally bizarre. Why does clicking on a home page link send you _back_ to the last version of the page you looked at and not _forward_ to the current version? Gil, can you fix this. Otherwise revisiting a page (at least in Firefox) requires two clicks. One on the link and one on the refresh button.

  7. Men only, or men & women?

  8. Men and women are invited

  9. MiMedinat HaYam

    is there a video / audio tape of the event?
