First, earlier this afternoon, I tried upgrading to WordPress 2.3.2, being that it’s an “urgent security release” and all that. In the process, it incinerated my categories, and nothing I could do would convince it to create new ones. I had to pull out the MySQL backup I’d made before the upgrade attempt and downgrade to the 2.2 branch again.
Second, Technorati seems to have dropped forty-odd days’ worth of blog reaction data. I think that’s a glitch on their end — hooray for any mistake it’s not my responsibility to fix!

I noticed the same Technorati problem. It hasn’t decreased my authority rating (not that mine’s great to begin with), but they only list one reaction from, well, you.
I posted on the Technorati support forum about it, putting up a comment about your issue as well as mine.
I saw the same thing happen with the other blogs I checked, so it wasn’t just you and me.
I managed to hose my blog with a WordPress update before. That’s why my comments were down for most of the year.
Yet, oddly enough, 2.3.2 didn’t seem to cause me any trouble.
. . . and now Technorati seems to be working again.
Yep. I noticed it was working again, too.
