Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah
a Joyous 2010 to You….
Thanks so much for stopping by — and for following our humble blog and (somewhat quixotic) experiment here at Society Matters. Thanks also to many of you who have emailed in recent days to ask: WTF? Where’s Society Matters? Did you get “taken down”? Whenever I’ve tried to load your site, all I get is a white screen.
The short version: We’ve been experiencing some technical difficulties. (Memo to self: Always do a major backup of all files & databases before attempting a WordPress upgrade.) But our crack team of programmers & engineers have been working overtime to resolve the snafus. A special shout-out to Gus — a “tier two” tech at Fat Cow, our hosting service — who did yeoman’s work today to get our site back on its feet. Way to go, Gus!
That said, we’re still not operating at 100 percent: a few of our sidebar widgets are still missing, some links have vanished, and all our em-dashes have turned to mush. (That em-dash thing — a sign, perhaps?) Our hope is to have all the remaining kinks removed by the dawn of the new year.
Until then, enjoy the holidays… come back and visit soon… stay warm… and all the best for a happy, healthy 2010.
