Well, I guess this is what I get for leaving the blog dormant for so long. A few people have pointed out my comments issues. I guess Haloscan, who I've used for comments up to this point, is switching over their system to what you see now. It's caused a couple of problems for me, namely that they're moving to a pay system in a few weeks (pass), and right now, though your comments are there when you open up the comments box, they're not being counted. They're also not going through to my rss reader, which is how i know when someone has commented.
I'm trying to figure out a way to fix this, but it may mean a couple of things
1) Remove haloscan and lose all comments. This would be sad.
2) Remove haloscan and figure out a way to transfer all comments (I think this can be done, but I don't know)
3) Completely reformat the blog and lose all comments. Very possible. Also sad.
Anyway, I'm looking to fix this, but until then go ahead and keep commenting. I'm checking the posts to read what you say, and if I end up losing all the comments we'll all hold hands, take a deep breath, and start over again.
Just don't try and linger in the hand-holding too long. I'm a happily married man!
