Over the weekend, increased traffic to www.tracypress.com crashed the servers, and the new Web site -- that soon will indeed be improved over its predecessor -- for now lacks several components of the old one.
Including the links to this blog.
There will still be new posts and fresh content on the Second Thoughts blog, but things won't quite return to normal around here until the Press Web site is fully functional.
But if you haven't noticed, there were no posts Monday and Tuesday. That slack is for one simple reason:
I have staples in my head. Twelve of them.
The Rustbucket died in a quite-spectacular crash on Santa Cruz County's Highway 17 that ended with it upside down on the roadway. Luckily, my E-ticket ride ended with only a head laceration, and no one else was involved. Sadly, the car didn't make it out nearly as well as I did.
But no fear! Expect the Second Thoughts column for this week to publish as normal on Saturday and for the blog to be updated periodically.
