Whew! That hurt. Nothing like a broken site to discourage readership. I think my numbers were down into the negatives over the weekend, if that’s possible. Thanks to all who wrote in from all corners of the globe to alert me to the fact that the site was in trouble. Fortunately, my host, whose upgrade caused the problem to begin with, was able to get me fixed up by this morning. They even managed to save most of the content that I lost with the crash. I greatly appreciate their efforts as well.
For you skeptics out there — and there were several of you — who advanced the theory that there wasn’t actually an upgrade going on last week, that I was merely slacking, I hope this little episode has brought a little trust back into the relationship. When Joe tells you something, friends, it’s gospel.
