    Hally - you're not uploading the functions.php from Thematic into your child theme are you?
    your child theme's function.php - should only include the changes/addtions you've made - not the entire functions.php that lives in Thematic

    What's in the functions.php file? If there is a syntax error in the php things will break, i've broken our dev site hundreds of times doing that. Just remove or comment out the sections you think may be responsible and reload the site.

    Make sure you have start and end tags in the file though (don't know if it would work empty), so add <?php ?> at a minimum :)
