Typepad, who provide the platform for this blog, have been doing lots of planned maintenance work. If you’ve tried to visit and couldn’t get here, that’s probably why; you might have seen a "Origin DNS Error” message instead.
Typepad tend to start this at 8pm Central Time, USA; that's three in the morning for us UK bods, and work usually runs on ‘till breakfast time here.
I’m a regular at The Online Photographer, another Typepad blog that’s well worth a visit. He has also been affected.
