We come to you with all kinds of issues of a technical variety, and this time, they're not even the fault of the hamster-powered servers around these parts. Instead, our beloved Thunderbird email server has decided not only to not load any of our email messages, it's even killed our a ton we had in our mailbox already. As you probably have guessed, email is rather key to our purposes around here. So we've been slamming our head in a door all morning.

Anyway, this is all a long way of saying that the email is temporarily down, and we've lost a lot of messages from the last 24 hours. So if you want to get a hold of us today, please email us at If you happen to be a Thunderbird representative who can fix the problem, hey, all the better.

But until then, the hotline is Operators are standing by, doing their best not to throw their PC through a window.
