Everything is back up.

Sometime today I'll write a blog entry about what happened. My blog can be found at http://blogs.phred.org/blogs/alex_wetmore/default.aspx

I still have a few more things to do that will involve some short periods of downtime, but they should be under one hour. That will happen this weekend or sometime over the next week.

search.bikelist.org still points to the info page, but will go back to the searchable archives today.

Thanks to everyone who offered to help or just expressed concern Recovering from a hard disk failure is never much fun, but knowing that people enjoy the list services made it a little easier.
