TypePad in Private Beta?

My surprisingly popular MSNBOT post got a referral and a TrackBack from http://firstpost.typepad.com/firstpost/2003/06/microsoft_crush.html 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. :-)

Tim Bray's second installment is on-line now. It's brief, but I assume it's building up to the third installment.

Go read this Register story and you'll understand.

It's really quite amusing if you're amused by Engrish and similar things.
