    Hey, Brian, thanks for the shout-out! It makes me feel a little less isolated out here in the hinterlands of the blogless.

    I’m finding the experience of being without my blog for so long is really strange… On the one hand, it’s kind of like a vacation, an unexpectedly welcome break from the feeling of having to be “on” and the frustration of not having the time to keep up with it as well as I’d like. But I’m also really missing my soap box, and especially whatever tiny community I have going on over there. Facebook is filling some of that social gap in the meantime, but it’s not the same. The sense of connection with others is there, but it’s different somehow… like seeing a casual acquaintance in the grocery store and making small talk vs. sitting down with an old friend over coffee and really having a conversation. Or something.

    Guess I just proved the point about different demographics and their online activities, eh? :)

    Welcome back to the land of the living, Jason! When’s the blog coming back? Maybe time for a new hosting provider, no?

    With any luck, the blog will be back Monday or Tuesday. I can’t really complain too much about the long outage because the whole thing is hosted and maintained for me free of charge by a friend, who originally built the blog for me as a Christmas gift. It works out great for me most of the time, but obviously when a problem crops up, there’s a big disadvantage in not having a 24-hour help desk available. :)

    OK, fair enough – it’s hard to argue with “free”…

    Indeed. :)

    [...] blogless for a week proved to be a very odd experience. As I said in a comment over at Brian Greenberg’s blog, it was almost like a vacation to be free of the thing for a [...]
