Okay, so… The other day someone somewhere forced an update to the site. I don’t know who, I don’t know how. I only know that it happened and no one connected to the site did it. It resulted, as updates often do, with the complete upheaval of the site’s code. Which is why I never willingly update the site anymore. I don’t have the knowledge, or time, the relearn wordpress every time they find a security problem, and I don’t have the patience to deal with searching for answers on a forum. I’m far tired of that shit. It just so happens that I’m right on the line of being popular enough that my site has value to others now, so the fine people as Hiveworks fixed everything for me. (Actually it was probably just the one person, but still…)

That said, there’s no telling what sort of damage was done, or what the lingering effects will be. I encourage you to report them in whatever manner pleases you best. Some of the post images are gone for sure and may well never return. I don’t know if I have them or not. There may be pages missing too, but I can’t be sure of that just yet. In any case you should be able to read pretty much everything normally. The navigation buttons are stuck in some kind of tiny default style for the time being, I don’t know how, or if, that can be changed right now. I think the keyboard navigation still works if you just want to arrow through things.

Anyway, thanks for your patience. I know this kind of thing is irritating, but there’s just no helping it. Every system fails eventually. I’m looking into the possibility of new hosting and a new format that might alleviate these kinds of crashes for the foreseeable future.

I already know about the rogue text on the bottom of the archive pages, so that’s being pestered too.
