My apologies for the mess here at MO this weekend. I’ve been doing some major upgrades and site maintenance. Things aren’t 100% done, but it should be the end of outages and major mashups.
As noted in the earlier post about comments (which are now re-opened, BTW), TypeKey registration is now an option. (UPDATE: It’s currently an option…as in not required.) I encourage you to utilize it if you have an account, and to get registered if you don’t. It’s free and easy.
This weekend I moved to a new host, upgraded to the latest version of Movable Type, reorganized my server, um, organization, and upgraded the comments section. I’ve also cut back slightly on the number of ads showing on the site.
All in all, I hope this all makes for a better experience for MO readers. As always, if you see anything mashupped, please let me know. I do all my site design myself (guilty as charged) and I’m not quite perfect all the time.
UPDATE: In a development that should surprise no one, the TypeKey thing doesn’t seem to work here with Internet Explorer. I’m running IE 6 here. I’ll check it with IE 7 tomorrow.
As I said (and I left a much fuller explanation in a comment to this post), TypeKey is not currently required to comment here. It’s an option for the future.
Whether you plan to utilze TypeKey or not, Murdoc suggests giving Firefox a try.
UPDATE 2: Hurray! TypeKey sign-in doesn’t seem to work here with IE7 either. I’m assuming it’s a problem on my site somewhere, but it’s working fine with Firefox and Opera. It’d be easier for me if you all just switched.
