Apologies to all who were concerned about the loss of the site, but it was out of our hands. Well, Zee's hands, really, as he's the only one with contact to Mondomix, who host the site for us.
We alerted the hosts to the problem on Thursday. On Friday morning, we got an explanation ('we had a problem with our data center') then a promise that the site would be up within 24 hours. On Saturday Zee reported that the site was still down, and then we were told it was all fixed this morning.
In other news: I asked Zee about changing the front page of the site, and he hopes to get to this in the coming weeks.
The reason I am saying all of this 'on Zee's behalf', is that I know he has a lot on his plate; I hope that I haven't mis-represented the situation in this post.

I don't get to check in every day, but when I stopped by a couple of times recently and it was down, I feared the worst. I don't post much here, but nevertheless very much appreciate everyone else's activity and contributions.
Thank you, Rob. I do look at SoTW every day whether I post or not and its absence was noticeable. By the way, I had difficulties accessing the forum for a few days prior to its being down. I don't know if that was a coincidence or not.
