Back up and running

Sorry to everyone who tried visiting here last night, only to get some sort of error message.

It seems that our code had a slight problem resulting in a loop that caused our server to go bonkers. Trouble started when our server provider (one I’d never used before) pulled the plug on the site and then did the slow-walk shuffle to get things back up and running again.

Needless to say, they are no longer our server provider, and I have put Japan Talk into the capable hands of Blogs-About Hosting, who are the same folks that have been doing such a great job hosting JAPUNDIT right from the very beginning.

Gee, it’s great to be back home!
