Turns out Xenosystems traffic was overloading the web-host account, so it’s been upgraded ($$$ *sigh*). Fingers crossed, the black-outs should be finished now. Apologies for the interruption of service, and thanks for causing the problem. (Top two days of traffic in the history of the blog happened just before the crash.)

I’m in Huangshan until Monday, with perhaps slightly patchier connectivity for the next couple of days, but it doesn’t look as if there’s much of an excuse for dropping off the grid. Going up the mountain tomorrow. Will spend the ascent thinking of something to talk about.

    I hope that you’re archiving all of the content here somewhere off-web (including — and especially — the 2013 comment threads), because to lose it all would be very sad. (As I understand the UF1.1 content was lost?)

    Wow … is there THAT much traffic here that it overloads your server? I mean … there’s not more than 50 guys who comment. Lot of lurkers I guess …

    We’re Nazi Porn for the serious academics and media types. Following for research purposes only (know thy enemy), and with the appropriate sneer of moral and intellectual disdain, plus popcorn, it’s a tolerable vice. Which basically describes incest and prohibition 101. Barbed wire is kinky.

    It was almost certainly Milo’s article about the Alt-Right on Breibart. He mentioned Nick Land/Moldbug/NRx.

    The XS shortcut in my bookmarks bar used to be a little square design. It is now…nothing. A gaping absence, that when clicked on leads me Outside, and lets the Outside in…

    This is an improvement.

    We will try our utmost *not* to craft golden statues of any livestock whilst you are up there.

    He’s been gone too long! What are we to do? Everyone put together your smallest tricks for ignoring the Outside and let’s build a more impenetrable human security system than ever before!

    this is why hosting your blog on is optimal unless you plan to sell stuff. zero downtime, zero hacking risk, zero spam comments

    Risk of getting shut down or doxed if you are too non-PC. I still host there, but with some anxiety. Not that WP has every been guilty of this, to my best knowledge not, but no major company can be trusted anymore.

    Hope ufblog comes back too, though I suspect its readers are less chatty than at XS …

    It will come back, but there’s an annoying problem to overcome first involving the DNS server, so it might still take a few days.
