Reports of My Death Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

My server is back.

I was down for the better part of the week due to a bit of stupidity on my part. Much thanks to Peak Hosting for extracting me from my mistakes!

This is very good news, now I could easily register a plugin for my wife. Greetings from Germany.

Thank goodness, I use the Exif tool a lot and I was worried that it was gone forever.

Glad to see you are back. I started missing your Japanese bicycling photos so much I was going for rides myself. I hope things are going well for you and your family.

Gruesome… but I think I remember one of your posts about just the thing: ‘The aftermath of websites when their author ‘transitions’.

When I didn’t see your site, started getting a bit antsy.

Glad that’s not the case.

Knock on wood and we raise a glass to your welcome return!

Glad to see you are back.
Now might be a good time to make sure you have a backup solution for the site 🙂

Hi Jeffery,

I’ve been lurking around you blog for a few months now and just wanted to say your photos are absolutely beautiful. I discovered them while browsing the web for information about Kyoto’s various sights (I’m planning a trip) and now I keep coming back regularly to look at more! Such wonderful use of light and composition. Great shots. And in many ways, your entries are so much more informative than the generic descriptions of shrines and temples on travel sights. It’s been a wonderful resource to browse.

I’m very glad you got your blog back up! Keep posting!

Oh, and I’m in California. 🙂
