Apologies to anyone who’s had trouble with the site lately. Dreamhost has been having troubles with the cluster I’m on (lulz-a-plenty in the epic comment thread), and they decided that rather then interrupt all service to make it quicker and easier to migrate over to the new fileserver, they would do it the long-hard-slog way. Consequently the site has been slow and/or down for a few days but it’s starting to look like they’re almost out of the woods.
I did another new re-arrangement of the blogroll in the sidebar – rather than lump everything into the two overly broad categories of “Blogroll” and “links to stuff that isn’t blogs” (already getting to be a very blurry line these days anyway), I’ve divided it into somewhat categories that are specific enough to be useful without being so specific that I have to come up with too many of them or end up putting a ton of stuff in “misc.” – rather than try to capture what the topic of the site is necessarily, the categories are sort of a mash-up of topic and what my own interest in the site has to do with. It’s a weird set of categories, kind of experimental, but I think it breaks up the list nicely.
