I was going to use Schwarzenegger's famous catchphrase "I'm back" for this post title but it was a bit obvious so this, I suppose, is me being enigmatic. Haha. Anyway, as they used to say at the BBC, we apologise for the break in transmission.
Righting the wrong that caused the blog to crash was straightforward enough once I'd gained access to my domain name settings. I'll try to make sure it doesn't happen again. It was quite humbling actually to hear from the number of people who hoped that nothing untoward had happened to me when they couldn't view the site at www.theonlinedarkroom.com. Thank you for your concern and good wishes.
Blogs, blogging and the people we come to know through writing and reading make for strange bedfellows, don't they? All but a handful of those who read the blog are known to me only as a name in the comments field or the occasional email and yet it's slightly troubling for readers when they think a website may have disappeared for good. It's not like losing a limb or anything but it's a little unsettling and disappointing. I know the feeling well myself having clicked to visit some websites over the years only to find that they'd gone forever. I suppose it's like a favourite magazine ceasing publication or, perhaps, a much-liked newspaper columnist retiring.
But, before you all start reaching for the sick bag, I'll leave this mawkishness behind and simply finish with the news that TOD is back to normal. Whatever that might mean...
