Igor says that das Frankenblog is a liquid document. It can change at any time and often does. In general, touch-ups and editing will be done on the main page. Once a story is archived, it can be assumed to be the final version. However, Igor is anxious to prevent his master appearing a total dill and in extremis may alter, amend, or remove material from the archives.
