Problem with “Curiosities” sidebar

The WordPress widget that powers the “Curiosities” sidebar has suddenly begun to act up. Most of the time (but not always) it displays an error message, rather than the del.icio.us bookmark list it is supposed to show. The WordPress widget that you are supposed to use for del.icio.us bookmarks does seem to work, but I don’t use it because it only displays the linked item and not the accompanying comment. However, if the problem persists I will switch over to the standard widget.

If you use an RSS reader, you can bypass the problem entirely by subscribing to my del.icio.us bookmarks feed.

UPDATE: I’ve replaced the broken widget with the del.icio.us widget, which only shows link titles. But you can see the titles and the comments just by clicking on the Curiosities title, which will take you to my bookmark page at del.icio.us.

Also, I’m moving the broken widget to the bottom of the sidebar, so I can tell if and when it ever starts working properly again.
