Several of you have emailed me to say that the capcha is not working correctly and is blocking your comments. I have started a *ticket* at Typepad asking them to fix it. Here's hoping their people can do so quickly -- I miss you guys.

I have disabled comment verification -- which I did not know was enabled, apparently Typepad in its infinite wisdom enabled it for me -- and that seems to allow comments. If I get bombarded with spam comments I will enable it again. Let's hope Typepad fixed the original problem.
Now: comment at will!
