You may have noticed that there was some downtime on this site during yesterday and today. Luckily I was up at 3am this morning working night-shift so I was able to contact the folks who host my server earlier rather than later.

Apparently there was some kind of hardware failure on the server but they weren't more specific than that.

Apologies for the interruption of service...

Sorry folks if you've arrived at this article from a Google search - this link has not been live for a while now - I believe that the Playboy lawyers are quick to act against any copyright infringement and this page was certainly one BIG infringement...
