(Second try at this post...)
Portions of my Movable Type install (which is the software behind the blog) mysteriously broke during the recent inactivity, and rather than just reinstall I took the opportunity to upgrade to the newest version, MT 4.1. This is pretty much guaranteed to break more stuff (in fact, this has already happened), so here's a thread for posting comments if you notice something not working.
Once I get this sorted out I might get around to blogging about how the move to New York went...
UPDATE: The search box is still broken, but for a different reason.
