And….we're back

You may have noticed a preponderance of error messages (and corresponding lack of cool ArtsWeek posts) over the past couple of days. Short version: significant technical problems. Massive thanks to Brian Angliss, who in addition to being our star enviro reporter is also our site’s technical director.

I don’t know enough to adequately explain the problem, but it seems to be a case of needing more server than we have. The perils of success, I suppose. Sadly, this stuff ain’t free (we’re all volunteers here and our monthly ad revenue doesn’t always cover our costs).

So coming soon, we’ll be begging asking our faithful readers to join us in our first panhandling fund drive. Details to follow. In the meantime, we sincerely apologize for the outage, and will do all we can to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

Thanks for bearing with us.

  1. First things first, get that ad unit above the fold. Second we just launched a CPA product that may ad additional rev to the site, (all banner ads). It’s all category based so were not scraping keywords. You basically sign up for free, the site gets approved, you choose your category, then grab the ad units you want. It may work better as remnant inventory for you to supplement your current ad fill.
