Pardon the Interruption

Our web site, including the blogs, was down for several days earlier in the week. While the site was updated multiple times, the world (both of you) couldn't read our lovely prose.

Normally this would have been fixed within hours, but while the server was up and the site was being updated, it was doing so on a timer (ala a certain other site, but we didn't get the idea there). We were in Nova Scotia while Jen the cat sitter watched over the crew. Alas, we didn't even know the server was off the net until Wednesday, and Jen's duties don't include extended computer troubleshooting -- I had her check one thing, and then dropped back ten and punted until we returned Friday.

Once we were back, I power cycled a number of items. I think the basement firewall router was confused, and the reset did clear our problems up.

(What? You don't have multiple routers in your kitten farm?)

At least we're back now. (testing 1 - 2 - 3)
