Internet closed

We regret to inform you that 

The Internet is Closed for the Day

This is not a political statement against corporate public policy and Net Neutrality. This is not a drill. The Internet is closed.

There are no technical problems. Technically the Internet is working fine. Also, your computer is not broken. Don't worry about that.

The Internet is not a business. It relies upon unsolicited and random, self-posted, new and original content each day to carry on. Unfortunately today there was no new original content, and so we have had to close down.

We're pretty sure this is a fluke, and we expect to be back to normal tomorrow, though of course we can't say for sure. It depends randomly on human content, endeavor, and inspiration. We suggest you check back if you're interested.

In the meantime the Internet is closed.

We're sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. As a temporary alternative, books and nature will probably still work as normal in the meantime.


Thank you for your patience.


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
