Personal Upgrading...

Sorry for the botched archives and comments—I am upgrading. Not having enough time for fixing broken things means it's going to take a few days.

Thank you.


Update 1: Basic functionalities restored. Comments working.

Update 2: A few glitches remain to be corrected but they are not very serious. Also, www is now completely deprecated. Almost all Facebook Likes in the main blog are mysteriously lost. God's will.
