Back up: Yes, we were down for about five hours, due to mysterious events affecting the server that hosts nielsenhayden.com. Everything should be normal now.

UPDATE: Well, not entirely normal; the system clock appears to be screwy, so if you post comments, they’re liable to have timestamps some hours in the future. Remember to only use this power for good.

UPDATED UPDATE: Okay, the system clock appears to have been fixed. All that remains are a few localization problems. All comments from California and Scotland appear to have been rendered in Chinese. In other news, Mexican pop hipster band Cafe Tacuba’s Re is one of the greatest all-genre extravaganzas of all time. Devouring every idiom in its wake, Cafe Tacuba sneers at your half-hearted Becks, your geeky Phishes. Re is like listening to the entire second half of the 20th-century rebroadcast at five million watts from Monterrey. What does this have to do with server problems? Nothing at all. [11:00 PM]

Their mouths are mounted on their backs or what?

MKK ;-)
