Hello from snowy and cold Chicago. I hear some of y’all can’t see our most recent articles. No, we didn’t overindulge in auto-show shenanigans last night — we’re simply under attack by the same gremlins that plagued us a few months ago.

These evil, fetid little creatures keep you from seeing our newest posts if you’re not logged in, and some of you may not be getting your email notifications either. We’ve sicced our IT team on the problem, and even if it requires flamethrowers, chainsaws, and heavy artillery, we’ll get the issue sorted.

Thanks for your patience, and if you live within reach of the snow storm that’s socking Chicago, Detroit, and all points in between and nearby, by all means stay safe and dry. And warm.

      I always hit the logo at the top of the page, otherwise I know it’s old. I don’t know squat, but my company holds about 50-60TB of major label music and our stuff loads or we get fired. If you need some help, let me know.

    I've a different issue: when I'm using my tablet (Lenovo Yoga YT3-X50F, running Android OS 6) and I'm trying o read some article (especially car review, but occasionally a regular story) I can't read it! As I'm not able to scroll up or down. Same thing happens when I click on "Read more" or on comments. It does in on this site only. And not on every story, but quite often. I've tried to use a different browser - no luck.
