Try it now.  I reproduced your error, but it seems much better now. 
Good thing.  One of the best things about the Powernaut is Talk Back to 
the Powernaut!  And thanks for troubleshooting.

Tumblr neglected to tell me until now that I had to expect any sort of 
confirmation e-mail from them.  The spam filter of Eiler Technical 
Enterprises *often* defeats unexpected e-mail.   I did check it, and it 
did tell me creepingmonsterism was following me.  But by then the 
confirmation e-mail was lost.
