welcome to the long weekend!

It's "Family Day" here - a recently manufactured holiday Monday so that February won't be the only month without a holiday. It's COLD outside - lots of snow - so all the clever little kiddies are inside playing on their computers. Which means, alas, that my real blog is not available right now. I'm guessing that the brats have managed to crash the server making it impossible to contact the database.

As soon as there is more information, I'll post it here.

update 11:01: It looks like we're back. Yay!
