My apologies to everyone who came to the site a couple days ago and got a terribly evil “301 Access Forbidden” message. Apparently our host is so awesome that if our load ever spikes, they just suspend the site and wash their hands. Unfortunately, this also ended up hosing the .htaccess file which is why the number of RSS subscribers is waaaaay down at the moment (I redirect to FeedBurner). Michael Hampton can vouch that these guys act kinda cruddy sometimes, but are otherwise good hosts, so I’m not naming names.
The big issue though was that this couldn’t have happened at a worse time for me, as I was in the midst of moving across town Monday and Tuesday and couldn’t do anything except beg another editor here to open a work ticket with our host to turn the site back on.
As for me, I’m still catching up with everything (the Peirce for Ohio campaign is blowing up, yo) and setting up home in the new place at the moment, so bear with me through these annoyances.
