Where have all the TypePads gone?

Okay, what's the deal with TypePad? Every TP site I've looked at today has been reset to Saturday morning.

The most likely explanation would seem to be that they crashed big-time and the latest backup they had was from the 10th, but that can't be it, can it?

Update: Well, I was close.

It happened at 12:22 a.m. Sunday morning. It seems it was my fault.

What kind of system do you have, anyway, Charles? Are you running on Blogger, somehow? You have their "flag" button but not their URL or full menu bar. You've got "designed with WordPad" AND "powered by Movable Type" buttons. Help! I am losing nanoseconds of sleep, and they add up.

I drew that WordPad button while I was still doing this site manually; I kept it up after switching to MT because there are still rather a lot of manually-updated pages here, and I did all my own templates anyway.

The Flag button is a fake, intended to make fun of Blogger's (although it does do something).
