Yesterday I changed physical servers for this blog. My plan included posting a message before it went down and then posting another when it returned, but somehow that slipped my mind in all the fun of transferring databases and correcting for a slightly different version of PHP in some of my scripts. (WordPress transferred completely without pain, for any of you who might be considering trying it. I had an obscure function in some of my own code that caused a problem.)
I appreciate your patience-those of you who have come back, that is-and will shower you with new posts for your perseverance!
