Thanks to those of you who alerted me to the fact that comments were down briefly. They weren’t the only thing — I wasn’t able to access Movable Type either. “Ed”:http://ed.puddingbowl.org/ noted that it was probably a provider issue, and so I emailed “Myacen”:http://www.myacen.com/ and described the problem. They had it fixed in under twenty minutes. They were that fast when I was setting up the blog too. Myacen: highly recommended. All is well now.
