I'm back, maybe
So I'm slowly recovering from last week's trauma. Maybe ready to resume blogging again.
Of course, right now I'm still hung up on housekeeping issues. I did indeed cut and paste in all my Haloscan comments, despite the best efforts of Blogger's spam controls. Apparently, there's some maximum number of comments you can post within a certain amount of time; if you exceed it, Blogger thinks it's spam and disables all commenting on the entire blog for several hours. This happened three times before I figured out that I could get around it by repeatedly disconnecting and reconnecting my internet connection, which changed the IP address and tricked Blogger into thinking I was a different person.
I also added and cleaned up some of the links, got rid of some of the little icons I didn't like, and changed some of the colors. Nothing too drastic, but I at least like it a little better than the defaults for this template.
Anyway, I should hopefully have something more interesting to say soon. Not that I'm sure you don't love hearing all about my comments or the color of the links, or that I learned how to make a favicon, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it's probably not that interesting to you. I don't know. I could be wrong. But in any case, I think I'm done with the tinkering for now, and actual substantive posting should resume shortly.
