I give it to you early.
FYI: Yes, I know the comment count function isn't working properly. And more readers than normal are reporting access problems with Movable Type, a problem beyond our ability to troubleshoot. We have been lucky to keep the blogging software running at all, my technical adviser tells me. In theory, we are less than 10 days away from a new backend control of our website. I'm hesitant to predict its arrival, given how long it's been in the works. The change should increase ease of use. It will require a new signup procedure, but that will be part of a new user system that should improve use of all facets of the website, not just the blogs. Fingers crossed here. More as soon as I can report it.
