…the site is up. Here’s what’s going on:
People had a meeting yesterday to discuss spending money on a new hard drive. I believe the upshot of this meeting was that everybody agreed “more study was needed.” Resnet Guy #1 tells me it may be “some time” before anything actually happens.
My heartfelt plea for some kind of temporary SOMETHING has prompted Resnet Guy #2 to restore the site. It will crash again. I shall report the crash. Resnet Guy #2 will restore the site. And so on, and so forth.
I apologise for the extremely annoying inconvenience. Under the good points, I’m taking this opportunity of brief Site Viability to download ALL THE DAMN FILES from the server (until today, they were mostly entombed in a computer that had stopped working). If everything goes completely to hell, I’ll find another host and pay for it my-bloody-self.
At any rate, your beloved alt-text has returned. Hurrah.
