Our New Look
Unfortunately, the old Haloscan comments have fallen into oblivion as part of the changeover. There weren't too many comments anyway, and few seemed intended for posterity. We do regret the loss of Ted Frank's verse on the authorship of expert reports. With any luck, he still has a copy and will re-post it. The comment function is now handled by Blogger.
The old permalinks still appear to work, and we're still evaluating what to do about our blogroll. Stay tuned to this channel for breaking developments.
Update: Whoops. Still a few bugs. To have Blogger handle the comments, apparently we have to let Blogger create post-specific html pages, and when Blogger publishes those, it sets the permissions wrong for some reason, which means that unless and until we can fix that problem or reset permissions for each post manually, the comments won't work, and the new permalinks will be inoperative for good measure. We'll have to think about this; among other issues, this may generate more html pages at the site than Atomz will index for free. Maybe we can set up filters so Atomz will leave those pages alone, or maybe we'll keep things simple by going back to the Haloscan comments. But hey! At least you can read the entries now.
Double Update: Okay. We've fixed the permissions problem and set up the Atomz search masks. Comments and permalinks seem to be working. Now then, did you notice that little envelope icon under each post? It lets you e-mail the post to your colleagues. Go ahead. Give it a try. Your colleagues love extra mail in their inboxes.
Triple Update (9/30/04): Hooray! Ted Frank's poem was picked up at The Witness Box, and so we've been able to re-post it.
