The website was down for about nine hours on Wednesday morning, and anyone who tried to access the site got a placeholder that made it look like I was out of business. But no fears — I'm still here and plugging away.
The cause was a DNS mishap, related to a soon-to-come site redesign. Don't worry if you don't know what DNS means. I do, and knowing doesn't help much. Just makes my head hurt.
A tip o' the Curmudgeon's fedora to TypePad customer service, which got the site back up in just a couple of hours and did it in professional fashion.
