For all six readers I’ve got out there, some of you may have noticed that my site has been down for the last few days. My long neglected Tom Waits blog got hit by a massive number of spam bots to the point that my hosting provider was forced to bring my site down for an overabundance of CPU usage. I was forced to bring down the Tom Waits blog in order to get my service restored, which was not too much of a hurt since I haven’t found any time to really start that site back up. In any case, I’m back up and running now . . .
