I’ve changed a few backend things here at w-g, but the only change y’all should notice is that you need to reset your cookie when leaving a comment. Just re-type your info and check the “Re-save cookie” box before submitting. Sorry for the inconvenience!
Update: Actually, there’s something else you might notice. I’ve implemented backlinking on all the archived posts of this site. This means that whenever you link to one of my permanent posts (and someone actually uses that link), an automatic link back to your site will be created. (See it in action here.) There’s a Metafilter discussion about this and what it means to “blogspace”. I’m not sure what I think of all that; I just thought it would be an interesting experiment. We’ll see what happens, eh?
