24 Hours Without Email - or - OH NO! The Server Is Down

How did we ever communicate before the internet? Well, before email we called each other up on the phone more or even (gasp!) wrote letters. Wow, those we the days weren't they? Not! I have just gone through approximately 24 hours without email due to some convoluted reason issued in a statement by my web host. I am guessing that what actually happened is that somebody spilled their coffee in a really really bad place and server fall down go boom. At least I'd like to think there was some sort of human interaction in this whole fiasco.

The point I am trying to make is that if you have sent a direct email to since 2/20 4:00 pm there is a good chance that I will: a) never get it, b) get it soon or c) get it as soon as they wipe off the coffee, er, reboot the system. Lets keep our fingers crossed!

Update: As of 2/21 10:00 pm EST I am able to send & receive email but my web host still has outage warnings posted. Slow drying coffee I guess! You can also reach me via an Etsy convo. As of 2/25/10 our email is back to normal. Hooray!!!
