Oh, Dear...Jhames pointed out a problem today, that my archive links weren't working... it's because I edited my template in MS FrontPage Express, and it replaced the "<" and the ">" from the Blogger codes with HTML substitutes. Big dummies. But then, I haven't been able to publish archives for months, so the tags were useless anyway. I had sort of ignored the problem, figuring that nobody was reading my archives anyway or linking to specific posts.
Well, anyway, I decided to solve the problem by upgrading to Blogger Pro. I'd been considering it for a while, with it's better features and so on, so it's not like the archives was the only reason. But the first thing that seems to have happened is that all of my long posts have disappeared, replaced with a little code that reads "[Big Body]." And since the post that Jhames was responding to this morning was pretty damned long, it's suddenly gone.
If you just arrived here from Jhames's site, I do apologize for the inconvenience. Please join me in a little prayer that all of my brilliantly fascinating text is recovered soon. I don't know what I'd do if I lost it all.
