Thanks to the hard work of Thad and Nat, it looks like we're back in business. We've still got some work to do, however, so please make a copy of anything important that you post -- we may lose some stuff until we get everything exactly right.

After reading the Joe Hyer thread, I have serious questions about the identity of the blogger "chez." In fact, I've blocked the account. If there are really two people blogging on the same account, they can now each create their own account anew.

[Followed by lots of negative statements about Stephen.] I guess this gives us some indication of the level of desperation in the Kingsbury camp.
