About the downtime

If you’ve been trying to get here over the last couple of hours or so, you’ve seen a 404 error. The reason that this is happening is that I signed up for Google Apps, which should have allowed me to get Gmail on my domain. It did, even if I didn’t get a chance to send any emails.
