   The Times site seems to be struggling at the moment and I can't find anything else in the UK - doubtless there is something skulking out there somewhere. Anyway, from New York Today...

A Star Everywhere Else, a Stranger at Home - Lucinda Childs (Choreographer): By ALAN RIDING:

...also the Northern Ballet Theatre website has just been re-cut and is looking rather swish:

   The Times seems to have redesigned and it looks like there old URL's might not work anymore - about one of the silliest things a site can do. But we need to look around a bunch more yet.

Who is the greatest? Merce Cunningham and Paul Taylor, the two giants of modern dance, come to Britain this season - one pushing his computer buttons, the other transposing the rhythms of life. Ismene Brown compares them:

Pain, starvation and bullying. A conference next weekend will reveal that dancers often suffer from eating disorders and train through pain. Peta Bee reports:

In searches The Times seems to be throwing up the right URL's for old pieces - it's just that other bits of the system don't really seem to respond prperly and put up a standard front page. Hopefully it will be resolved such that the back catalog links still work.

The other thing to note is that they now have Guardian style commas in their URL's and thus you need to copy and paste to use their links or posters need to learn how to make those little links that I sometimes do - like 'Guardian Link' etc. Easy... next time you are posting a message (that is you have the box up to type things in etc) look above the box and you will see a hotlink called 'HTML Reference'. Hit that and in the page that comes up look for the entry entitled 'HREF link with text display' because that says how to do it. Least you forget, print this posting? There is nothing mandatory in this and if you post up links in the normal way I'm sure most folks will know how to handle them. But I would urge peopel to try and learn how to put URLs (of any type) in a post - it's much more helpful then just saying there is something in a paper.

Oh.. and The Times now has a search page again...

   I saw it last week and found it rather fascinating. I had not looked foreward to it, as I expected it to be too abstract and too modern for me, but I must admit that I thought it very inventive and exciting. It was danced very well and the music was good. I found much of it quite incomprehensible, especially the brief moment of male nudity, which got a laugh from all the little ballet girls in the audience.Despite that if you get a chance go and see it, it almost converted me!

Apologies, everyone. I've had massive computer problems today and have only just been able to hack myself back in. As far as I can see from a quick glance at the the papers, there's nothing in them today. If anyone finds anything, however, please post!

   The hard-copy FT and Times have also both reviewed the Cunningham performance - very positively.

   Sorry for the lack of links yesterday - my ISP had problems for much of the day....
