Remember that scene from Yellow Submarine? Sure you do.
Old Fred: Now whatever you do, don’t touch that button!
Ringo: Which button?
Old Fred: That button.
Ringo: This button?
[presses the button and is ejected]
That’s right. I touched the button. Yesterday afternoon I was doing what I thought was some routine maintenance on the site when I inadvertently…deleted the whole thing. I didn’t know there was a button for that.
So I want to reiterate: there was no attack. This one was all my doing. I never claimed to be a techie, folks, and now you have all too vivid proof. And I apologize for being unable to post all day, as I was on the Laura Ingraham and Michael Medved shows today, as well as some others, and I’m sorry I wasn’t able to give you notice. However, I think both replay, so you may be able to catch them.
Anyway, thanks to the heroic efforts of Charles Johnson, we are mostly operational again. If the site still looks strange to you, please hit refresh. If it still looks strange after that, you and I have different tastes.
I still cannot access my firstname.lastname@example.org email, and have no idea how long it will be down. This is a major hindrance, as you can see from all the “with thanks to…” tags on various posts. But I will put up a few things soon, and hope to be able to resume regular posting tomorrow.
And I promise never to touch that button again.
