I'm not really digging the piss-yellow template, though.
So what happened was my template got corrupted somehow - hence that display of gibberish you saw.
After getting ZERO help from blogger's usually wonderful tech support, I actually had a Live Journal user suggest changing the template.
So, hopefully it's fixed.
Just so you know, this blog is (and has been for quite some time) mirrored on Live Journal (I hate their compose interface, so no moving over there), although I've been lazy about archiving over there, so it's not quite up-to-date yet (please don't link there, either - it's just a backup and I don't update it very often).
Don't even start suggesting services that cost money - early on I made a deal with myself that I wouldn't get all type-A and empty my bank account on pimping out a weblog (or paying for traffic spikes, you hotlinking motherfuckers).
Blogroll will be back as soon as I can muster up the courage to start editing the template again.
