See? I’m back. The terrifyingly complex problem turned out to be a permissions issue that took me exactly thirty seconds to fix once I sat down long enough to look at the logs. All better now. Now I’m upgraded and have some measure of defence against all the comment spam I’ve been getting (that you haven’t seen, because comments are moderated on this site – as all my wonderful friends who’ve signed up just to leave a note know well).
So that’s all better. I’m sitting down to get some work done, get my application to grad school FINALLY uploaded, and drink a cup of coffee. At 8pm. I am not going to sleep tonight.
