I’m sorry that updates haven’t been hitting the site when they should have the last couple times. The new site generates static pages automatically, so it can look like we’re still up even if the tools we use to manage posts and strips aren’t available.
The machine just gets pulverized every update. Minus forum traffic, we can usually expect two million or more pageviews a day. I would have thought that we had reached some kind of saturation point long ago, but that hasn’t been borne out. Where are these new readers coming from? Are they Apple enthusiasts, heartened by our move toward fruit? Are they recently manufactured androids? Are they phantom pings - the first wave of a Denial of Service phalanx?
Who knows. Anyway, it shouldn’t matter who it is. Our stuff should be available when you want to read it, and I’m sorry.
