Comments are down; play is halted

Well, that was bad timing. Evidently, last night the blogs hosted by My Gracious Host got hit by a more intense than usual spam attack. The server guys shut down the database, and when it came back up, Jed, who was sick, tired and spammed, and decided, very reasonably, to shut down comments on all three affected blogs.


Well, for the nonce, comments are off. The Online Encore game is stuck; GRs have six points so far, with one song about daffodils and two songs about lilies. And another potential song, although my memory tells me that it is laurels not lilies, which are heaped on the casket of the Unfortunate Rake—well, sometimes it is roses, and sometimes they leave that bit out altogether. Folk Music.

Anyway, stay tuned. I will attempt to alert y’all with a new post when play begins again. In the meantime, smoke ’em if you got ’em.

Tolerabimus quod tolerare debemus,


Testing, testing. Is this thing on?

Yes! It's on! Thanks, Jed!


For whatever reason, the most recent post ("Comments are up; play is resumed; jacks or better to open.") will not open.

I can see it in the RSS feed, but when I click the link (http://www.kith.org/journals/vardibidian/2010/11/08/13406.html), I get Page Not Found. When I click the link from the Tohu Bohu page, I get nothin'.

Thanks, Nao. I had just noticed that myself. I don't know what's going on, alas, but on the plus side, the note said nothing much more than the title. You should be able to see the text of it by going to the category view, but I warn you, there's only disappointment there.

I will check with my Gracious Host, but I suspect I will wind up deleting that particular post and trying again...
