I have no more idea than anyone else what happened to JW's blog. Possibly a Pez overdose. Perhaps critical mass from pun accumulation. Or maybe just kulaked by the Wordpress PTB.
I sent an e-mail query, and if I hear anything, I'll post it. But probably not until late this afternoon. (Something about needing to sleep a bit between night shifts in the ER.)
Feel free to do the same in comments if you know anything.
Apparently his "critical error" was to tell Biden "F**k you."
We hope Wordpress is just having a temporary hiccup, and not some Woke Weenie there nuking sites because they can.
UPDATE - From JW:
"Probably someone just took the data files and gently stirred. It was all there. But inaccessible. Plus all of the links were obliterated.
Had to (via machine, thankfully) reconstruct the structure. I think it's all fixed.
There had been no software updates for 25 days.
Guessing I rubbed someone the wrong way. The Mrs., to me as I was getting the problem fixed, "I'm glad I'm not planning to fly anywhere with you, since you're probably on the no-fly list."
Dunno. It could always be a coincidence, right?
(Nipsy Russell voice) riiiiiiight." - from e-mail today.
FTR, kids: There are no coincidences.
(Hey, if you want to think that of all the Wordpress sites out there, only JW's happened to have "critical errors", after having exactly zero problems for years, right after his most popular post ever, which happened to be a magnificent rantastic send-up of Gropey Dopey, culminating in "F**k You! Strong message follows.", and you want to believe that coincidentally "just happened", well you go right on thinking that. ROWYBS. And I have a bridge for sale, cheap, right next to some oceanfront property in Kansas.)
But if anyone out there isn't on a list or three, you're not trying hard enough. ;)
