Back after necessary maintenance

maintenance

Hi, everybody!

I don’t know how your Friday and Saturday have been. But mine have been a toddling pile of piss.

PatriotRetort.com crashed four times on Friday.

I know a lot of you were concerned that the site was attacked. But that was not the case.

So last night, when it crashed around ten, my web host brought it offline and did some much-needed maintenance to prevent these crashes from happening in the future.

And over the last day, I’ve learned a few things.

First, it is possible to use the F-word so much, it loses all meaning.

Second, I am not patient.

Actually, that one I already knew.

After all, my favorite “Gilmore Girls” quote is, “I’m sorry. Have I ever been mistaken for a patient person?”

But the other thing I learned about myself is I hate feeling powerless.

I’m a doer. If there’s a problem, I want to spring into action and fix it.

To quote Xander from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, “I feel the need for some vigorous doing.”

But there was nothing I could do to move this maintenance along.

And that’s not a fun place for me to be.

(Which may explain my liberal use of the F-word over the last two days.)

So I cleaned the house and did some laundry.

And let me tell you, it’s just not the same.

I don’t know about you, but I was suffering from Patriot Retort withdrawal.

But I did keep writing.

So I already have stuff ready to go.

Ultimately the goal is to prevent these site crashes from happening ever again. And, frankly, I can put up with climbing the walls for a day if that gets fixed.

You may notice some images dropped out, but that is temporary. By the end of the weekend, they should all be squared away.

So welcome back to PatriotRetort.com!

I know I’m glad to be back.

    So glad to have you back. I was worried the Evil Empire (Google) did you in. 😳

    I figured you installed some kind of shield on the site to protect it from the potential impact of the upcoming full solar eclipse — like what the world did for Y2K. Seems reasonable to me. 😉

    You missed an opportunity to play the “main stream media” game and make up a “hack” story.
