Thanks for your patience while our blog engine back-end was updated. You should find that the response time is much better now. You'll notice that all the blog post URLs have changed – we have a conversion layer in place so all prior blog posts will be seamlessly accessible through their new and old URLs. There are a few kinks being ironed out still – the Recent Posts pane on the left will be replaced with an On This Page pane, so that Category-based browsing (which I really need for classes!) works again.
If you see anything that looks broken, please let me know.
