A little admin update… A few years ago, as a result of a database move, a lot of annotations were accidentally cut short across the site. It’s taken a while but most, or maybe even all, of these have now been restored to their full length.

Enormous thanks must go to one reader, Max Wainer, who has diligently flagged more than 1,600 such annotations across the site for my attention over the past couple of years. Without his efforts I would probably never have got round to fixing so many, so thank you Max!

There may well be other annotations that have snuck through unfixed, but getting on for 2,000 have now been restored. So anyone reading through the earlier diary entries will now have the full benefit of all your collective work and thoughts.

Thanks for all the work! I hate to be a wet blanket, but my annotations to the Tangier article, some of them quite lengthy, are still truncated, one of them whittled down to a bare "TANGIER: ENGLAND." Maybe the missing text is gone for good, but just in case it's retrievable, I thought I'd let you know. Here's the link:

"There may well be other annotations that have snuck through unfixed..." so if you see any that still need fixing, feel free to flag them for my attention!
