Okay, well there have been some changes around.
Nothing that you need to be concerned about, but it’s stuff that just affects the functionality of the Journal. Some updates to various plugins and updates to WordPress apparently broke some of the coding that I had in here, and so some functions I had to disable (like the Category Icons) and others I had to recode (like the four extra links on the navigation bar to the left). I had lost the link to the Home  page, the link to the Site Map , to the Obsidian Mirror  and to the Email . Stunk and I didn’ t notice since I still get email from here, although it’s mostly SPAM.
The Category Icons, sadly, look to be gone permanently. I had tried to keep the icons up, because I like them and they give a good visual way of seeing in a glance which categories the various articles belong to, hopefully this function will be brought back soon.
Also apparently my account with A Small Orange (my hosting company) got suspended somehow. Even the techs aren’t sure why, but if you came here then that’s why you couldn’t see anything.
Then the updates didn’t run right, and it was set in “maintenance mode” for a while. Finally I got in, and things are good now.
If you notice something missing that I had before, let me know. I probably miss things, and I’m not happy about that.
