I don't blog much 

If you're not reading this…

It appears that some aspect of Norton Internet Security has begun blocking my blog, so if you’re not reading this, that may be why. Possibly I need to update to a newer version of WordPress, on the possibility that Norton may have decided that older versions have security flaws that they just won’t tolerate as of last night. What a pain in the arse. Sure, I am running an old WordPress 1.2.2, but I’d modified everything that posed a potential problem a year ago. Oh well. I’ll see what upgrading takes later today…

Whew. It’s going to takes hours. My version is so old that I have to first upgrade from 1.2 to 1.5 and then upgrade again to 2.0.4. Mind you I don’t even know for sure if this will resolve the problem with Norton’s thinking my blog is bad, but perhaps it will enable me to reactivate Comments again…

I could use a day off from work to get this done.

Update: I’ve updated to the latest WordPress, but it did not resolve the problem. My hosting provider swears they did no upgrades on Tuesday night, so I’m contacting Symantec (Norton’s) to let them know. Hopefully others are having the same experience and they’ll resolve it.
