Welcome back (if you knew I was gone)

December 13th, 2009

Well, it was a crazy Saturday.

For those of you tried to visit here on Saturday, you might have encountered some problems. Depending on what time you visited, everything was fine, everything was blank, or you couldn’t even get on to the site at all.

To make matters worse, I posted up two lengthy blogs and both disappeared. (Technology–you gotta love it!)

Anyway, I think (I hope) we have everything fixed now. I had some good whisky to sustain me through this, which helped. I apologize for any inconvenience,  and I hope to get those lost new blog posts back up here soon.

In the meantime, send me a comment if you want to and let me know you’re still out there. (The “comment” section wasn’t working either.)

    Welcome back, John!

    I’m sorry you lost two long posts; that sucks!

    Happy holidays,

    Thanks, Jason. A lost Saturday, but Sunday will be a better day. And there WILL be whisky!

    I had decided to subscribe to Malt Advocate but couldn’t get on the website yesterday. I’m glad that you’re back up today and hope that you are for the future. I just took advantage of your (quite generous) new subscription offer. Thanks for the hard work and Merry Christmas! (Season’s Greetings if you are of a different persuasion.)

    Glad to see you’re back John.

    Incidentally, I’m buying Malt Advocate at the corner now and helping to support my local independent news dealer.

    Love your crystal Glencairns!

    Luke, there will ALWAYS be whiskey!

    Dave, thanks for taking me up on my offer.

    DavindeK, thanks! And I am sure your local independent news dealer thanks you too!

    A nice little trick – write your blog in a word document and then cut and past it into your blog. That way you have a back-up if (when) something like this happens again.
