Well, I just tried something (I'll spare you the technical details) with the publishing that appears to have worked. So, let's see if this post shows up a little quicker than the last two. :)
I'm probably going to still move the blog over to WordPress on my own site, if this fix actually works, but it won't be as urgent - so I'll probably hold off for a little while. There are a couple of things I'd like to iron out on the news blog before I switch this one over.
I still have quite a few questions from the last week that need to go up, but I'm really tired so I'm going to save those for tomorrow. For now, a hot shower and sleep are calling me!
