As some people had noticed, I have been having several problems with my web host. All the problems had resulted in my site being off-line for most of the past week. This is not the first time that the host in question has caused this type of issue, and I don't think it will be the last. One huge difference this time was that they would not respond to any of my inquires.
I have been thinking about changing my host for a while now due to some other issues, as well as the (previously very short-term) downtime, but this was the proverbial straw. I can deal with the site being down if there is a technical issue, but not with their support team ignoring me.
So I have changed hosts.
Please bear with me as I get things setup at the new site. There may be some things that don't work quite as they should, an the comments may not work at all for a while, but I will get this all worked out. My you want to make a comment before the comment system is working again, you may send it through email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
