It turns out that yesterday’s attempt at setting up caching for the blog didn’t work: my feed was broken. (Or rather, one out of the three feed formats.) Sheer luck that I discovered it so quickly—I’d e-mailed the Akismet folks about a reader whose comments were regularly getting flagged as spam, and as part of their (delightfully quick) response they pointed me at ismyblogworking, which told me that, in fact, my blog wasn’t working.
So I’ve tured off hyper-cache, and am now trying W3 Total Cache. Hopefully things will work better this time…
