Return Of The Jack

Hello everyone, miss me?

My apologies for the disappearance of large swathes of Submit Response—most of the pages hosted under this domain will be back online by the end of the day.

The problem, for those interested in such things, was this: any attempt to edit a file on my server, or to upload a new file, resulted in that file instantly turning into an empty file. And, so, whenever anyone left a comment on the weblog, the page they were commenting on, and all the index pages would - poof! - dissappear.

This very peculiar behaviour had me stumped, but my hosts worked it out: I was over my hosting quota. You’d’ve thought that would trigger an email alert, rather than prompting the server to wig out completely in a way that my host’s own tech support man described over the ‘phone as ‘really strange’ and ‘not anything I’ve seen before’, wouldn’t you?

Hey ho.
