The last few days I’ve had sporadic trouble accessing blogtown. Specifically, blogtown has on occasion behaved as if it were blocked, with requests suspiciously timing out or just not going through. Yesterday, in fact, it wasn’t just blogtown, but Stuff and Public Address that had disappeared from the internet. I don’t know the specific cause, but I suspect undersea cables damaged by recent earthquakes and typhoons in Taiwan.

Other distractions are study and work. The semester is about to start, and that means lots of little preparatory things need to be done and life will get busy again over the next week or two. I’m trying to get a head start by getting as much of my planning done early- it’s a strange feeling, it’s almost as if I’m getting organised in my old age.

Anyways, hopefully I’ll continue to have consistent access to blogtown and maybe one of these days I’ll manage to write something actually worth reading.

    The RSS feed from blogtown has been slow to load now and then over the past week, but I haven’t had any problems accessing your blog at all. At least no so far.

    However, there have been some Internet hiccups lately which might be related to some effect the typhoon had on the cable. Reminds me of the consequences of the earthquake three years ago.

    I suspect the recent quake and typhoon because I’ve also noticed some of these internet hiccups on other sites, too.
