Yay! My site is back online!

Please sign the petition at to allow the San Francisco Baking Institute to remain open!


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

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.
