Long story short, connectivity to the server hosting my blog is having issues. I’ve been assigned another IP address in the mean time, so that could at least get to it. I took this time to upgrade WordPress 1.5. The new default theme is certainly nicer than the old one, but it still has many problems. Eventually I’ll work up a template closer to what I had before.
In the meantime, access to my blog will likely be spotty until these issues get worked out.
