Many things are working; many others aren't yet. Unfortunately, clicking the comment links in the right-hand sidebar of my or Vardibidan's blog doesn't work--hoping to fix that tomorrow. Sorry about that.
On the plus side, searching now does work. It used to be painfully slow, and would usually time out before returning results, so it's been useless for years; but now it seems to work reasonably quickly.
Anyway, more tomorrow.
