Looks like there's some progress; it let me read a reply posted on the 10th that it didn't display before.

Reed says that he is replacing the server, replacing the software, and the first things back in place will be the most recent posts. Movable Type is out. Things are changing.

Yeah, rereading that comment about the effects of butterflies can get old after 11 days.  :p

How about a progress report?

Will PT be resurrected at some foreseeable time?

Thanks to anyone working to bring it back from extinction.  May whatever gods that be bless your endeavors and grant you speedy success.

The PT transition is proceeding apace. Reed has a demo site up and has shared info to the rest of the bloggers as to how to create new posts in the new system. Comments will be via Disqus in the future, and Reed will transition our comments to Disqus.

The new system is also designed to be more mobile-friendly.

I just entered the DNS changes for PT to go to the new site. The usual caveats about propagation of DNS changes apply.

Check it out.

And I just flipped a switch on this. Reed has been doing all the heavy lifting.

Yup. A bit slow loading the .jpg's, otherwise who would know? Good job!

How does the email verification thing on PT work? I clicked on it maybe a half hour ago, expecting the website to send an email to me, but I haven't seen one yet.

I've clicked on "send verification e-mail" several times, and have yet to see an e-mail from disqus.

I found signing up a bit clumsy, but I seem to be in now. Reserving judgement until further use.

I don't think I'll like it even when it lets me post replies.

So long as it doesn't let me post replies, I hate it, period.

So far what it does is tell me that it's necessary to "validate email address". So I've clicked on that maybe dozens of times now (maybe a hundred?), and nothing related has appeared in my inbox.

It's as if the Panda is all thumbs or something.

I really really like it.

Perhaps you can enlighten us on how to deal with the following scenario:

The first time I visit a posted topic there are 100 comments. Then you visit and reply to the second comment. Two days later I revisit and find 200 total comments. How would I find all 100 new comments starting with yours?

In the previous Panda format — like here at antievolution.org — your comment would have been 101 and easily found just after the previous 100 and before the more recent 99. In the new format, yours is scattered somewhere along with all of the other 99 requiring a time-consuming examination of all 200 comments.

Do you really, really like having your valuable input so hard to find?

One somewhat clumsy workaround to that is use the browser search function for "hours ago", "1 day ago", or "days ago".

What do I gain for the effort of jumping through the extra hoops? The costs seem to far-outweigh the benefits.

You still have a sense of humor (or perhaps humour).

No. You didn't see this.
