this site was down for the last 5 days. what happened is i've been running my server from a cable modem, and the ISP just had some major outage and it came up with a changed IP address. the ISP was supposed to be doing dynamic IP addresses for the last 2 years, but they haven't. it also took me a while to fix it because my server is located about 1000 miles away from where i live and i could not access it without calling for help. there is a chance that the IP address will change again shortly, and that this site will go offline again. i know there are dynamic DNS services to handle this, but i'm not interested in doing that. which brings up the root of the problem ... i just dont care :) i'm actually on contract right now, so when money is coming in ... i couldnt care less if my server is up. so if it goes down again ... i wont be hustling to fix it. if it does go offline for an extended period of time (think months) ... i will ultimately bring it back online ... someday ...
