Blogrolling - a glitch in the system it seems

I have just become aware that has some major problems which are preventing blogrolls being updated or added to in any way; the page which the link takes you to (just at present, at any rate) gives details of what the problems are.

A couple of weeks ago I noticed that my blogrolls weren't appearing properly in my blog; almost all websites have brief periods of 'down-time' occasionally and as blogrolls had started to appear in my blog again after a few days I assumed that all was back to normal. However as I had no occasion until today to visit the website I remained blissfully unaware of their continuing problems. I was able to work around the particular problem I was faced with today by adding the new link into the coding of my blog template in a way that should be completely transparent to visitors, but changes to most of my blogrolls using similar 'work arounds' will not unfortunately be possible without deviating from my usual alphabetic blogroll ordering so I will not be adding any other new links just for the present. If it seems that the problem is going to remain for considerably longer I may make completely new arrangements for my blogrolls, but as this would be a laborious and time-consuming task I am going to leave things as they are for now.
