We had a little hiccup

Paul's post about the combo pocket-knife/revolver attracted the attention of boing boing and gizmodo, and the subsequent traffic spike promptly crashed our server, taking us offline since last night. Our apologies. I think I've got everything working again. Please return to the regular weirdness.

Update: I see Paul beat me to the explanation. But one other thing I should note. I temporarily disabled "member tracking" in order to alleviate the strain on the server. I'm honestly not quite sure what this tracks, exactly, or if we ever need to have it on at all. But the webhost told me it would help to turn it off. So I did.
