etherwork.net - YET AGAIN

Big Sigh. The etherwork.net server (where my real blog is) is unavailable YET AGAIN. No idea when it will be back.

As always, the way to know whether etherwork is back online is to refresh this page. If you see a leafy image at the top of the page, then you can access the real blog.

edit: I'm happy to report that etherwork is once again back online.
