What does this button do?
As you may have noticed, my site has been down for about two weeks. During that time, I've received literally more than one email asking what happened, so I thought I'd take some time to fill you all in.
While I'm still not entirely sure what happened, I have it on good authority that this picture was taken at my hosting company's St. Patrick's Day party mere moments before the outage:
Serves them right for having margaritas on St. Patrick's day
For the somewhat real story from my hosting company, click here. Doesn't clear up a whole lot, so I like my explanation better.
But regardless of the cause, the effect was that I lost a lot of stuff. Luckily, I had just backed up my blog entries mere moments before the site went down. However, as you can tell by flipping through a couple older entries, almost all of my hilarious images are gone (my non-hilarious ones are mostly intact), in addition to all the non-blog pages on my site. So a lot of stuff is gone for good, but hopefully I'll be able to get some things back up over the next few weeks.
You also might have noticed that I've entered my Blue Period. The green was even getting on my nerves.

P.S. Some friends and I are thinking of ditching our hosting company and heading out on our own. So if you'd like your own website, or if you have one and don't like your host, let me know. We're trying to get enough people to make it cost effective.
