Ho hum. How nice to have a backup diary. For those wondering why the usual link doesn't work: it wasn't me. I didn't do nuffink. I am not even too sure what's going on. But it appears that someone put a JCB through a bunch of fibres and cut off a pile of the local university and associated small business centre.

I must say, the rest from constant email was nice. However, if this keeps up, I suspect I am going to have a lot of mailman pages to go through, setting myself off no-mail.

In a stroke of genius, the local networking expert, who is of course conveniently absent for a while (grrr), put the backup MX records on a machine here. The practical upshot is that I can't receive email until someone goes and fixes this. I am not quite sure how you fix these fibre things. I have Scrapheap Challenge-inspired visions of welding and soldering, but I fear I am somewhat off-target. Allegedly it will all be fixed imminently.

I await the imminent fix and the return of the immanant email spirit. In the meantime, it is sunny, Alan is away, and I can make garlic bread without his silly complaints.
