i still can't log in via the http://www.wordpress.com page. luckily i had the meta in my sidebar and can go directly from blog to dashboard. some weird wpadmin error comes up when i try logging in.
also, people who subscribe to my bloglines have said this:
Bloglines has encountered an error trying to fetch the latest version of this feed. Bloglines handles errors automatically, no action is required by you. The error was:
The feed does not appear to exist. This can be caused by the feed URL being incorrect, or it can be caused by a configuration issue with the server hosting the feed. If this error continues, you should check the feed URL and, if it is wrong, subscribe to the correct URL.
