After many many many months of struggling and frustration, I finally figured out what was wrong with Tomorrowlands' scripts. The upshot: The journal script works! Journal permalinks work! About freakin' time!

It'll take some more rebuilding to get the adult-files script, the contact script, the comics-display script, et.al. working again, but at least the major block has been removed.

Edited to add: I cannot emphasize enough what an incredible feeling it is to have this change made. The practical effect is tiny, but my website feels fixed, dammit. This has been hanging over my head pretty much continuously since the server crash in 2005.

So can we yell "It's alive, It's ALIVE!" now... or do we have to hit the server box with lightning first?

That would put him back at square one.

Actually, it'd be worse, because he'd have to wait for the server to get up and running again(melted-and-refrozen pile of metallic goo replaced and all), then RE-patch the Tomorrowlands server, then RE-update the page(and hope it wasn't bought by one of those domain snatchers), and then maybe write a blog post about this set of travails, assuming all goes well.

And I'd KNOW I was possibly responsible, for mentioning that possibility. (It's like those magic words: "It can't possibly-"; you know the rest.)

But Adam Junior would hopefully have better grounding and a rubber something to keep it from enlightenment this time. (Enlightenment: Good for Buddha and philosophers, bad for electrical engineers and electronics alike!)

(My apologies, if this sounds like flames; however, I KNEW that that kind of response would occur.)
