another outage

September 19th, 2009

Starting last night and running through this morning I was once again cut off from blogtown- and not just blogtown, but a large number of New Zealand sites. It’s frustrating, because I did come across a couple of articles this morning I would’ve liked to translate and post here, but with no access…. oh well.

So these long periods of silence that have come to prevail on this space are due to two things:

  1. Work. It’s been busy.
  2. Occasionally dodgy access.

I doubt that my access troubles have anything to do with blogtown itself, nor is it any gfw issue. Every time I’ve been locked out I’ve tried several other New Zealand sites, and when blogtown disappears, at least half the New Zealand internet has gone with it. So it would seem some technical glitch somewhere cuts me off from a large part of the New Zealand internet for short periods every now and then. Frustrating, but I guess I’ll just have to live with it.

And now that the semester is settling in, hopefully I’ll get more time to post here…. providing these part-time translation gigs I’ve been getting permit, of course.
