My ISP Owes You an Apology

For the last 18 or so hours, and for some people it may still be so, Vinography has been deader than a doornail, thanks to a botched network upgrade by my hosting provider. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, and I thank you for your patience. This is only the third or fourth time Vinography has gone down in about 5 years, so while it's incredibly annoying, I'm trying to keep it in perspective.

The irony of this downtime is that just two days ago I upgraded my Movable Type installation to the new release which dramatically improved the performance of the site for you, my readers. In particular, I know many of you have suffered through waits of 30 seconds to sometimes 3 or 4 minutes when posting comments to the site. This performance problem has now been resolved, and comments post in just a few seconds now, which is a huge relief to me and hopefully to you as well.

Thanks for your continued readership. I now return you to regularly scheduled programming.

time constantly. Many models will run using either AC power or batteries.

With havin so much content do you ever run into
any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot
of unique content I've either written myself
or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my
authorization. Do you know any solutions to help reduce content
from being ripped off? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running
off the screen in Safari. I'm not sure if this is
a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post
to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the
issue solved soon. Many thanks
