Hi fellow artists,

Yesterday (Thursday Jan 8, 1998) our Internet connection went
down at 4pm PST. Our site ( was not reachable til today
at noon PST when Pac Bell fixed the problem. This is why your
logs didn't arrive on time last night and why you couldn't reach
us via the net.

It turns out that a repeater on one of the local poles for our
T1 had a hardware failure. The Pac Bell technitions replaced it
which fixed the problem. We actually showed the technitions
the site while they were here which was cool. :)

While our net connection was down, we performed routine maintenance
on which needed to be done (ie. vacuming). The server was
down for only 30 minutes for this while the Internet connection
was down for 20 hours. We are sorry for any inconvience or concerns
this may have caused you.

Please let us know if you have any questions concerning the above.
