looneytunes_fallinghare_gremlinFriendly neighborhood webslinger’s update:

We’re back up and fully functional. New host, same great name.

And a few more features and improvements in the works, to show our gratitude.

Meanwhile, if you want an enemy to root against in this most recent drama of site-up, site-down, our most recent web glitches can be blamed on one simple enemy: The Netherlands.

spiderman3_greatestbattleI mean this quite seriously. Even after we switched to another web host, The Netherlands sent its spiders after us. Or if you prefer, some dike-and-ocean-related metaphor. In they swarmed/flooded, and the site ran slow. This increasingly unfriendly neighborhood webslinger had to thwip-thwip like crazy until all these competing spiders were stuck to the wall.

Well. That’s that. Again, thanks to all our readers for their continuing patience.

Don’t forget to read up on the five Clive Staples Award finalists. And if you have already voted in round 1, vote for your favorite in round 2.

E. Stephen Burnett explores fantastical stories for God’s glory as publisher of Lorehaven.com and its weekly Fantastical Truth podcast. He coauthored The Pop Culture Parent and creates other resources for fans and families, serving with his wife, Lacy, in their central Texas church. Stephen's first novel, a science-fiction adventure, launches in 2025 from Enclave Publishing.
  1. Wow, that’s frightening. I hope all the nasties stop now! When I last got hacked it was from Russia somewhere.

    • And with that, Kessie, you’ve written the first comment on our newly hosted website. For that you should surely win some sort of award (although per contest rules this cannot include the Clive Staples Award).

      I have to say, “getting hacked by the Russians” sounds much cooler than “getting hacked by the Dutch.”

  2. Andun says:

    Hooray for Sir Stephen, Stouthearted Squasher of Spiders Clad in Clogs!

  3. Henrietta Frankensee says:

    Hallelulia! I am delighted. You, Sir Stephen get all the awards. I hope you get a peaceful night’s sleep and the adulation of thousands.

What say you?
