After 5 days CartoonChurch and the Cartoon Blog are back online, although some turbulence may continue. The problem was caused by a fire at the data centre where the site is hosted which meant that all of the electricity had to be turned off. For some reason it took a long time to turn it on and make the servers work again – my web host’s support page will, I am assured, explain things shortly.
As some of you discovered I ran a backup site with a few high resolution cartoons for subscribers whilst this site was down, but letting people know about it proved difficult. The backup site will remain online at http://cartoonchurch.wordpress.com/ in case there are any problems today or indeed at any time in the future.
Many apologies for the inconvenience and confusion that this all will have caused. I know that many e-mails sent to me bounced – I’m hoping none have been lost, but I don’t know that for sure. E-mail is trickling into my CartoonChurch address again now, but it might be safer to send e-mail to dave at wibsite.com owing to the delays.
I’ll post one of the posts (about SPCK/SSG) that I posted on the backup site here on the Cartoon Blog shortly. Please forgive the duplication.
