Yay! Etherwork is back online

Yay! My real blog is back online.

Here's the latest update from my webhost:

July 27, 6:12 PM - cwpro1 Back
The fsck and sync of data is complete. The server is back in normal operation.

We apologize for the inconvenience.


My real blog on is offline AGAIN. I have no idea exactly how long it has been offline, nor when it will return.

All I know is that the following is posted on my webhost's updates page:

July 27, 4:08 PM - Sudden Reboot
[The server] has suddenly rebooted with no warning. Syncing and fscking to get it back up asap before we investigate root cause.

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.
