Blog Service Pinger issues?

I’ve recently become aware that some people are havin' problems with me Service Pinger, with a chest full of booty. Apparently, somethin' about th' halloween stylesheet is causin' th' form elements in th' menu sidebar t' overlap some o' th' pin' form elements in such a way that they become unclickable. Ahoy, avast!

I’ve made a minor adjustment t' th' stylesheet. So if ye were havin' problems before, please try again now, and let me know if ye are still havin' problems or if it is workin' fer ye again now, by Blackbeard's sword.

Update: Ah, okay, it’s an IE6 issue… I normally use Mozilla, and I hadn’t checked IE lately. Workin' on it…

Update #2: Okay, tracked down th' problem, I'll warrant ye. I had an inline stylesheet on that page t' set th' width o' th' form, but it wasn’t specific enough, and caused th' form elements in th' menu t' be too wide. Everybody should be happy again. :)

    follow-up: It works beautifully and I see blogchatter is down. Fire the cannons! The prior post did strange thin's t' me code though.

    Sure, ye can embed th' form in yer own site. Just be sure t' check back here from time t' time, in case I’ve made changes.

    One o' these days, I’ll get aroun' t' cleanin' up th' source a little, and makin' th' PHP code available. It’s not like it’s terribly complex, really.
    Walk the plank, ye scurvey dog!

    As far as Blogchatter goes, I need t' test it again and see if I can figure out what’s goin' on with that one. But a pin' t' will migrate into Blogchatter anyways. I think I’ll just hide that one in th' form, fer now.
