  • Finally Back Online

    If you're reading this then you've probably noticed that the site's finally back up.  My previous host did something to the database server that made it go away - it came back this morning so I took a full backup (the last one I had on hand was from May) and finished the migration to a new/better host.

    My contract with the previous host doesn't end for another month, so if you notice anything funky (like files that are missing) please let me know and I'll go looking.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.  Enjoy.
