So my hosting company DeKluge - generally a "I never hear from them, which is what appeals to me" kind of place - recently upgraded servers.
As a part of this process, they also 'upgraded' certain features available to me, the paying customer. These new helpful features immediately broke the website.
(As a note, I have to say that I know the founders of DeKluge personally, having been colleagues with them at a one of those companies I engaged in something I'll loosely refer to as 'work.' They're good people.)
I am working on recovering from the pain now, and should shortly be back to normal. but in the meantime, please enjoy this preview of what it will be like to be cripple and Japanese in the future.
