A week without this blog

A week without this blog May 9, 2012

Hello.  Test. Test. Is this thing on?  I think so, now.  After a week!

So the hosting company’s server went down, but then they had trouble transferring the files to a new one, and then they gave me an alphabet soup of technical gibberish in an effort to help me understand what was happening.  . . .

Let’s see if this time the blog stays up for more than minutes at a time.  Try to get on several times during the course of the day and if you can, help spread the word that Cranach is back.

I do appreciate the numerous expressions of concern that I received from many of you.  Some suspected something sinister, that we were being blocked or hacked.  (As someone observed, that post about Islam and Mormonism surely offended both Democrats and Republicans!)  I’m pretty sure, though, that the only sinister force at work is with my hosting company.

I’ve put up a couple of posts, below, that I tried in vain to post all last week.  I don’t think they are too dated.  But we’ll get caught up.

I just hope you didn’t break your habit with this blog.  I hope I didn’t break my habit with this blog.  It was kind of nice not doing it.  I read.  Watched TV.  Went to bed early.  Went to a movie to see “The Avengers.”  But I realize that I need it.  It made surfing the web frustrating when I found something that I couldn’t tell you guys about.

    At last it’s back! I was having to use the cache to read posts. At least I got caught up from a few weeks. I’m glad its back.

    It was up at 6am Eastern and running nice and fast. Then at 8 it was dead. Just refreshed a few minutes ago and got the same “bad_httpd_conf” error. Refreshed again just now, and hello!

    Socialists did it. First Cranach, then France. All of America is next. 😀

    Not sure I have actually commented before, but I did want you to know that I suffered much disappointment this past week by missing your blog. This has grown to be a “must read” for me every morning, and I have looked with great anticipation each morning for my reader to indicate new posts. I am very glad to have you back, and hope the technical difficulties are a thing of the past.

    Oh great news! Such a delight to see the site back up. I was beginning to fear everyone had been raptured and I had been left behind…

    I see that it worked 😀

    I second Randall @5 – not a regular commenter (this is the first), but read it as often as possible. I’ve missed it and am glad it’s back up and running.
    One additional note – have enjoyed reading “Vocation of Family”. So far, I have highlighted enough of it on my e-reader that the Notes & Marks section is practically a copy of the actual book.
    Thank you (and now your daughter) for all you’ve written!

    Glad to see you back–I hope you stay!

    There was a big cyber attack on UStream last night/this morning. It was against Russian dissidents who broadcast live there, so we can perhaps guess at the source. Thousands of Americans were deprived of the Shiba Inu Puppy Cam, where a new litter is expected momentarily. Wars have been fought over less!

    I’m on the Blog at 12:23 p.m. Mountain Time in AZ. I thought it may have been subversive attempts by devils and demons.

    Thanks goodness, you’re back. Hope it lasts!

    Glad you are back, Dr. Veith. I can’t wait for the next rabbit hole of reflection down which you send me. If you are looking for suggestions to ease back into it, I wouldn’t mind hearing your thoughts on “normal nihilism” and it’s effect on the culture.
