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 bookmark list it is supposed to show. The WordPress widget that you are supposed to use for 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 bookmarks feed.

UPDATE: I’ve replaced the broken widget with the 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

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.
