So the circuit went down again to a coordinated DOS attack (according to my ISP), and before it had recovered, several city blocks lost their copper due to a train hitting a 300 pair telephone cable, one of those pairs was home to my circuit. After the phone company replaced the cable (which was somewhat interesting to watch for a spell, believe it or not), the DDOS was still going on, so I moved my server to a hosted provider. Unfortunately, some incoming email was definitely lost. More unfortunately, I’ve got seven years of mail archives that I may or may not want to migrate to my new server. Probably not. Anyway, if you sent me an email between Friday and Sunday, it may have been lost for good.
For fun, I wrote a little script to throw random images onto the left sidebar.
