Our long international nightmare may finally be over. You may now be able to tell the world how wack a $1,000 table that basically dares kids to draw on it is.
After a week-plus of broken comments and tags to nowhere, I decided to take President Obama's call to service and sacrifice to heart, and so I spent the weekend stripping away the programming duct tape that had held Daddy Types together for the last couple of years.
The site now has all-new coding and operates on the latest version of Movable Type [4.23], and for the moment, comments and tags both work again.
Though I'm sure there'll be some bugs and error messages along the way--for example, the new "related images" feature, which is supposed to present interesting images buried in over 6,000 archived posts, only shows Babar and a Honda Odyssey--but the basics are in place.
Going a week without any reader comments, I quickly realized how much I missed hearing what was on your minds--and how much of the useful information on the site actually comes from the discussions and the community, not from me. So thanks to everyone for sharing your advice, experiences and perspectives.
