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.

As is revealed by the accompanying video, it's the victims who are doing
the legwork. There are evaluations of all officer decisions on tests,

there are no crosswalks nor traffic lights there.

You can also get some homebrew games to test the installation on if you haven't got any backed
up ROM files from your games collection. A player
could finish the game without using any special moves The controllers allowed the developers to focus on smaller movements that do not work well with the Wiimote controllers.
There are a number of emulators out there for everything from Ultima Online to Everquest,
and many emulators attempt to recapture an era or 'golden age' of the game.
