We’re in the process of upgrading Movable Type (our esteemed publishing software) to the latest version and inevitably are experiencing a few hiccups — for instance, our feed seems to have acquired the dreaded “[!]” in Bloglines. We should manage to sort out these little details by day’s end. Please do let us know of any other suspicious irregularities.
One thing you might notice if you scroll down the sidebar is that we’ve replaced our confusing categories system with a confusing tag system. Actually, for now we’re keeping them side by side, in the interest of maximizing confusion. Bear with us as we piece together our taxonomic golem and watch it wreak havoc on our poor, quivering blog, which is, as ever, a work in progress.
The feeds have been reinstated, and the feeds from the old version of MovableType have been rerouted to their holding location. I believe the old feeds were causing the conflict with the new feeds which is making Bloglines choke. -jdw
We’ve also decided to reinstate trackback on a provisional basis. Movable Type 3.2 seems to have better moderation and junk-filtering tools so hopefully spammers will be deterred. Trackback is dead! Long live trackback! – bv
