Sorry about that.
One of my new year’s resolutions was 99% uptime for this blog. Looks like we’re not off to a great start on that front. Boingboing was kind enough to link to my previous post… which turned my server into a smoking pile of bits for much of yesterday evening. In an ironic twist, the company that hosts my server moved the machine from one hosting center to another late last evening – in the hopes of improving uptime – and the server was down for several more hours in the process.
For all those who were unable to access our non-plans for an outdoor hot tub – which we actively encourage you NOT to follow – my apologies for the downtime. For those of you with pointed comments about our failure to understand physics or our chosen bathing costumes… have a nice day. And for my regular readers – Africa-centric posts later today. I promise.
