Me and my conspiracy theories. It never occurred to me that something could be wrong with Typepad - no, I thought it had to be ME and my links that were cursed. :) Ah, well, in this case I'm glad to be wrong AND glad to be cheap. It was just Typepad that was SNAFUed (and mere coincidence that a few Blogger blogs I read hadn't been updated since December 11) and us cheapskates who use the FREE Blogger host escaped unscathed. Glad things are fixed now. Does anyone know if the Typepad posts and comments that were zapped are gone forever? There were a couple of good ones that will be missed (Bri's "I Am Right and Everyone Else is Wrong" among them).
