Perhaps this has been asked and I just missed it, but are there known JavaScript issues with upgrading to 4.5.5? I just updated a site and it seemed good until I went to adjust an article image in an existing article and it threw: [Error] TypeError: 'undefined' is not a function (evaluating '$(textpattern.do_spellcheck).prop("spellcheck", true)')

in console. 
What am I missing? Thanks!

However, if I go to /textpattern and do something like flip the site to testing mode and then back to live, it works fine again. Just curious if anyone else has seen this.

Our latest article, Using Snow to Place Your Garden.

We've been without a microwave for over a month now, and to be completely honest, I'm not sure how the Pilgrims lived without them. I bet they had a lot of unfinished leftovers in their fridges all the time.

Poll: how do you buy music? Do you prefer digital, vinyl, or CD?

It's sad how much it takes for an artist to make a living in music. I'll be buying more physical albums and doing less streaming with Spotify and Rdio. Both are great services, but if an artist can't make a living at it they'll have to do something else instead.
