My apologies for the site downtime since last Thursday. After last week’s windstorm and subsequent power outage, Sprint DSL facilities out here on 20 North had some kind of a short, which killed my home phone line. On Thursday, they fixed it, killing my internet connection in the process. (Given the choice between phone and internet, I’ll take internet any day.) They just fixed the DSL five minutes ago.
Too bad Sprint is the only provider out here — I hosted this site via an Ntelos connection since its inception, up until December, and never had any such trouble. I’ll have to figure out some sort of alternate hosting for this site — I can’t see Sprint cleaning up their act any time soon.
Anybody who has tried to make an account or retrieve their forgotten password since the switch to the new system on the 20th will have been met by stony silence. Sorry about that. There were a couple of bugs (one in Postfix, one in WordPress) that conspired against you. It should work now. Thanks to Jim Duncan for his help with this.
