Mink Machine

It’s alive!

The server maintenance took a while longer than originally planned since I ran into every single error known to man. I was actually quite amazed that so many components could cause so much trouble at the same time. The only thing that worked flawlessly was the power chord… Finally all cable gremlins and software spirits seems to be in place again. Sorry for the downtime.

Meanwhile, I noticed that even though the browser statistics for January 2006 claims a 10 % share for Firefox, it seems that 35 % of the visitors to Mink Machine use that browser! This means you are very clever, my friends. I also note that among the top keywords for searches on my site, “fånga mink” is almost as popular as the number one search item “pumphagel”. Fascinating.

Speaking of resurrection, I almost fell off my chair when I noticed that boo.com is back online. They are even worse at staying down than Rocky Balboa!
