Service resumes

After five weeks, 22 emails, five endless and massively expensive overseas phone calls, a threat of legal action delivered by international registered post and more foul-mouthed abuse than I have ever heaped upon anyone or anything in all my life, my London-based web host (who shall remain nameless for the time being) has finally corrected the administrative error that has kept this site out of business for the past five days.

  1. Hi PB,

    Good to have you back (bad time to go down, but I guess it would have been worse a week earlier). I’m glad that the problem was just the service – I was worried that the defamation suit you alluded to earlier had taken you off air permanently.

  2. Re the mother country: Long story, UD. All I’ll say is that it wasn’t a conscious choice on my party. I’m not that silly. Also, good point regarding Australian free speech or lack thereof.

  3. Sam, nothing sets the men apart from the boys like online psephology.

    Tassie Rob: the legal threat was about me threatening to sue them if they didn’t put my site back up. Nothing too dramatic I’m afraid.
