In case you hadn't noticed, we've been experiencing some, um, challenges with the site for the last few days. The hamsters that power our servers have apparently been turned into coats by the Olsen Twins, and we are working our hardest to expedite the Visas of a pack of prairie dogs who have agreed to work for us on the cheap. Until then, though, you may see some spottiness on the site — and not just in the quality of the writing. Some comments have been disappearing, some posts have been reverting to previously saved versions and, well, we feel like we've been under a technical assault so twisty and turny that Manoj himself might want to turn it into a script. So, all we can say at this point is to hang in there, just like those kittens in the dentist's office. We'll be doing the same.
