Some of you loyal email subscribers may have wondered why you haven’t received any mindless musings lately. Really loyal fans who faithfully checked the site in the absence of email may have noticed that folks who were relying on email were missing a little, but not much. I just haven’t had much to say lately, and what little I did write in the last couple of weeks didn’t get mailed out because of a technical glitch at my web host. (They upgraded their mail software and screwed up the config so some scripts didn’t work any more). I finally gave up trying to make them understand the problem, let alone fix it, and worked around it. So email is once again being sent out whenever I have anything to say (including a “catchup” message that should have included everything that was added during the outage), although I can’t guarantee my lack of creativity is going to improve soon.
