Site flatulence being treated
Merlin Mann | Jan 18 2006
The randy clusters of zeroes and ones which power the index cards which run the servers which make the 43 Folders blog come to your home computer set have apparently decided to unionize without telling anyone. Consequently, I suspect a wildcat strike may be behind a lot of the unreliable site behavior in the last day or so. So it goes.
I’m on it. I have bought the zeroes and ones an ice-cold keg of Miller Lite to keep them occupied while I’m upgrading to WordPress 2 and spinning the giant wheel that decides which of the 1400 or so plugins I have are now incompatible with each other. Yay, Wednesday! I rule.
Anyhow, I’ll post again here when I get things straightened out, but things are very likely to break intermittently (read: a lot) throughout today, so it won’t offend me at all if you want to go take a nice walk, do a bit of correspondence, or perhaps teach a small child how to make a pirate hat out of a newspaper. Of course, you can still drop by the wiki, the board, or the store; they’re still non-unionized, work for hard candy, and are just happy to have a warm place to sit.
See you on the other side. One hopes.

Edit 2006-01-18 11:40:15: OK, I think things are mostly stabilized for now. You'll still hit little problems, but we're steadily up. Special thanks to Bryan and Ben at A2 Web Hosting. They continue to rule. More soon.
Edit 2006-01-19 10:58:50: Huzzah. We're 90+% back. We now return you to your regularly scheduled life hackery (with thanks for your patience with our awkward growing pains).
