My surprisingly popular MSNBOT post got a referral and a TrackBack from but tried to follow the link and hit a password prompt. I guess the beta advertised on the TypePad site is running.

It's no surprise that they're using TrackBack, of course.

I've got to give 'em credit for calling the server firstpost. :-)

Are you sure that's the hostname and not a blogspot-style subdomain for a blog called First Post (also amusing, of course)?

It probably is, yeah. But it's still amusing. :-)
