Alright, we're back! Just a minor hacking incident, but my esteemed webmaster Daniel has gotten me back online!
I know, I know, you probably already heard about it from Drudge, but today is my birthday. To mark the occasion, Daniel also upgraded me to Movable Type 3.11, which means that it shouldn't take 500 years to post comments or rebuild the site. On the down side, we've got a bit of a generic appearance at the moment and I'm going to have to put in a few hours to re-introduce the features to which I've become accustomed. (Plus, I loathe the stupid calendar doodad on the right there; could anything be less useful? No.) So just wait a bit and we'll have the message-of-the-day back, and all the various comment reading tools, along with the whimages for the sidebar and the BlogAds for my pocketbook. Ah, glorious blog-wealth -- how I missed thee!
And so forth and so on. Leave a comment, wish me happy birthday, and toss an Andrew Jackson to Spirit of America in honor of me surviving yet another perilous year. (And next year is shaping up to be even more perilous, marked by innumerable floods, earthquakes, and volcanos. I tremble with dread, mixed with expectation. The good thing about disasters is all the post-apocalyptic looting.)
