Well, I think I have everything back to normal with this blog.
I switched back to Haloscan for comments and managed to get all of the old comments back and transferred the ones done on the new Blogger comments system. The Blogger comments does not allow for editing (something I need) so I turned it off. I also found the duplicate code for the banner ads. Yeah Me!
Still not sure about Abject Conjecture although I do like the fool-injected description. The only other name I had toyed with was... IMHOtep... maybe with a nice Egyptian motif.
Or is that reaching too far?
