WP Problems   30 comments

Recently, I haven’t been able to comment on all the blogs I used to. With some, my comments simply don’t show. I don’t know if they land in a spam folder or if they’re not recorded at all. So, if some of you are missing my comments, it’s not me. I have no idea what mightcause this problem and what I can do about it. Maybe I simply have to wait and see if that kink unravels itself.

WP Probleme

In der letzten Zeit habe ich nicht mehr auf allen Blogs, auf denen ich normalerweise zu Gast bin, kommentieren können. Auf einigen Blogs werden meine Kommentare einfach nicht mehr angezeigt. Ich weiss nicht, ob sie in einem Spam-Ordner landen oder ganz einfach im elektronischen Nirvana verschwinden. Wenn also einige von Euch mich als Kommentator vermissen, so liegt das nicht an mir. Woran es allerdings liegen könnte und was ich dagegen tun kann – da stehe ich vor einem Rätsel. Wahrscheinlich muss ich ganz einfach abwarten bis sich dieses Problem von selber löst.

Whenever I have an e-mal address, I’ve tried to notify the blog owner, though.

In den Fällen, in denen ich eine Email-Adresse habe, habe ich versucht, den jeweiligen Blog-Eigentümer darüber zu kontaktieren.

Dogleg Bridge   2 comments

As mentioned in my previous posting, the Old Chain of Rocks Bridge is quite unique as it has a dogleg [20-degree bend] right in the middle:

A Bridge with a Dogleg

The reason for this unique feature: the planners had to allow for

  • a 90-degree angle for barges passing underneath, directly into or with the flow of the Mississippi, and
  • putting the foundations on solid rock.

For more information about this bridge check out „RailTrailsRoadTrip – Day 7 [ Old Chain of Rocks Bridge]“ in my blog „Pit’s Fritztown News„.

The Old Chain of Rocks Bridge, crossing the Mississippi above-river of St. Louis, linking Missouri and Illinois. In the olden days the famous Route 66 lead  over it, and today it’s part of the fantastic (bicycling-) trails in the vicinity of St. Louis:
