Everybody needs a vacation sometimes

Used with permission, CC: Christopher Thomas

Sometime today, I will be taking down. It’ll only last for about an hour…hopefully! During the downtime, if you’re visiting this blog directly, you’ll be able to read the text on this page just fine, but you’ll see timeouts when loading images (like the one above).

The website has been trucking along 24x7 for over five years on a machine that has never seen any downtime except for neighborhood-wide power failures. The reason for today's outage is that we’re moving some furniture around, so I have to unplug the machine where lives.

So, my apologies if you were hoping to receive the full effect of your visit here. If you’re dissatisfied with your experience, I promise you a full refund.

Really. Ha, ha.

Speaking of images, you'll still be able to view these, since they're on a different site.


If you're reading this as email or in a reader and having trouble viewing these, try visiting the site directly.
