UThink upgrade January 13, 9:30am - 11:30am

I'm very sorry for this short notice, but the software that runs UThink, Movable Type (, will be upgraded tomorrow (1/13) beginning at 9:30. We hope this process will be over by 11:30, and hopefully sooner. We are upgrading Movable Type to MT 4.3. This upgrade fixes many bugs in the software and introduces some minor new functionality. In order to perform the upgrade we must take the software offline. Your blogs will still be available, but interactions with Movable Type (such as through adding entries, creating blogs, commenting, etc.) will not be possible.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience this causes. Please let me know if you have any questions at
