Please hold. Your call is important to us.

The blog was offline for a chunk of time today due to an exceeding of bandwidth which remains mysterious. The hosting company has tried to block hotlinking to see if that’s the issue, and somehow this has resulted in none of the images on this entire site loading, which obviously was not the aim. They’re working on it.

Please accept my apologies for this heinousness. If it’s any consolation, I most certainly feel your pain. The downtime was bad enough. The broken pictures are making my palms sweat.

Update: Okay the pictures are back. There are still problems, though. All the permalinks to individual posts return 404 errors. Sigh.

Update 2: We seem to be fully functional. (And programmed in multiple techniques. STAR TREK JOKE.)

At first I was :ohnoes: because the history blog (the blog about history) was :skull: and after a few tries I got all :cry: and :angry: because WTF, MATE. But now you’re back and we can all be :boogie: .

Thanks all. It’s nice to be missed, but it’s nicer never to give anyone reason to miss me. :)

Resisting the urge to continue the Star Trek theme (resistance which is probably futile), I’m glad you’re back. You’re at the top of my list of history links, so I’d be unable to start my day if this blog wasn’t available. :notworthy:
