Sorry for the mess which has become my blog. I can't figure out why there is the persistent enormous gap between the title and the post of the first entry on the front page. I've tinkered with about everything I can think of and the only thing that fixed it (a "float:left" command for the post) made it work in IE but screwed it up completely in Netscape.
I have a help request into Blogger; we'll see what happens. Any advice is most welcome!
UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who extended me aid in my time of need. In the end I decided wholesale template change was an appropriate means of fixing the problem. So welcome to the "new and improved" General Glut's Globblog.
