Alright, comments are back open, although from now on, you’ll have to be a registered user (Open ID, Google, etc) to post a comment, and they are all going to be moderated by me before they go up on the blog.
The offensive comments have been deleted, although it took a lot more energy than I thought it would. Essentially, I had to transcribe the Classic Blogger template I was using to a New Blogger template, which is why the site may look slightly different from now on. I tried to maintain most of the formatting (and fix a few things that were bugging me anyway), but there might have been a couple things that got lost in the translation.
As always, let me know if there are any major issues with the site, or if you don’t like how something looks, etc.
All in all, this was much less painful than it was to redesign the site a few months ago. Looks like some of that HTML/CSS knowledge that I taught myself via trial and error stuck after all. But yeah, drinks are still in order…
