Apologies to you for the site going dark-- this happened for two reasons:
1) My credit card number was somehow stolen and I had my bank cancel it.
2) I'm so financially underwater right now with a surgery-requiring shoulder injury that's kept me from work for several months that I simply can't afford to spend money on this place anymore.
It's up for now-- I just don't know how long it will remain so.
I can't afford many unnecessary expenses anymore, but I can't quite bring myself to let this go away forever either :)
To all of you that have written me over the years with thanks and other comments about this site, you mean more to me than you will ever know.
