We've had some gremlins with the new design lately including some blocks where the site has been down entirely or folks couldn't comment. We have a team of experts working on the issue currently and they expect to have everything fixed and back to normal within the next day or so. (I could bore you with the technical details, but let's just leave it at server issues.)

If you notice that the site is down, please shoot me a message on Twitter so we can reboot everything and get it back up quickly. It seems that every time we close our eyes to sleep, the site goes down and then stays down until we wake up again. If someone lets us know, we can wake up and hit the big red button. It's not marked "EASY" tho...

Thanks for staying with us while we work out these tech issues. Re-launching a site with a new design is never easy, but this has been extra challenging for the tech team. We'll have everything back to normal soon and if the site slows down today it's because they're working on it currently.

And, of course, if you'd like the help out by making a donation to help cover the costs of keeping the site up and running, it would be greatly appreciated.
