some good news
A short while ago, I fixed the problem with my computer's hard drive, so we're back online again. pH3@r my L33t B0x0r 5k1LLz!!!
My (new!) CD-R has been acting up even before this, but I've managed to hastily back up our email, personal documents, Palk databases, etc., onto a CD-ROM, and I'm backing up my Web site right now (and when I'm thru, one of my projects is to purge a lot of the old stuff, so if you want to take a look, now's your chance).
I plan to return to a regular posting schedule tomorrow morning. See y'all then!
