What a strange registration process, Chaz. For some reason I couldn’t sign in as Creakypavillion – which is my blog on WordPress. I thought all wordpress users are supposed to be logged in automatically – sort of like gmail users on Blogspot.
Just wanted to express my sympathy with your technical troubles, that’s all. Not sure the mourning black margins were your intention, but it sure seems appropriate.
I’m still fiddling with the user (more precisely, “contributor”) functions. And I was wondering about the WordPress connection myself, since I have an actual WP account these days (although this isn’t hosted at wordpress.com).
Anyway, I’m just happy that everyone hasn’t given up and gone away.
One (to me major) benefit of the change, Chaz: the indents now show up that way in Google Reader. But of course, at least until you add a feed for the Vent, I’ll still have to visit the site from time to time.
