Is this thing still on?

Not exactly a resolution, but

Technical difficulties

Last update on Nov. 11, 2014.

Our server has been locking up repeatedly over the past few days, apparently because our spam filter was consuming an obscene amount of memory.

If you can see this (and the domain name in your browser doesn’t begin with “groundcherry”), then your DNS client can see ropine.com at its new IP address, which points to a virtual server run by the nice folks at OpenHosting.

There is a certain cachet to being able to tell people “go to ...
