What’s with the weird-lookin’ comments on the older entries?

Every so often, WordPress releases an updated version of its blogging program. Usta be that I’d have to download a zipped file, unzip it, upload it to my website, and figure out how to make it all work. I managed to screw up that perfectly simple process three times, most recently on July 12, 2009–hence the “Part IV” in the title. Now, it’s not technically correct to call this blog “Part IV” anymore because all of my posts have been loaded back on here. Nonetheless, until I come up with a better title, the “Part IV” stays. But I digress.

When I re-entered those older entries into the blog, I found it much easier to copy the original comments from saved source files and paste them directly into the posts instead of re-entering them as individual comments. Thus, the pre-7/12/09 posts look strange and the formatting is not consistent from one post to the next. I may fix that one day. Who knows.
