American Digest, as well as my antiquated personal computer system, has been up and down and in and out and over and under and around and through on this prepositional day. This has to do with “Verification” required from time to time by the ICANN masters of the online universe. I have endeavored to comply and I hope that the site will slowly become visible again.
This verification takes up to a day for the site to propagate through the innertubes of the underweb. I’ve gotten email from readers in this country and around the world saying they can see it again long before I was able to log into the edit page. So your guess is as good as mine and I’d have to say that: “If you are reading this the problem has been solved…. for you.”
In the meantime, thanks to all those who wrote to alert me to this situation and help me to rectify it.
UPDATE: It seems as if the worst of the Verification process is over, but it was a very strange and disjointed day watching and waiting for it to happen. To add to the fun, my ancient iMac decided after MacCenturies of yeoman-like service to just pack it in as well. This meant I had to resurrect my almost as ancient ChromeBook in order to continue to correct and monitor the verification process. Now I have to cast about and see if there’s a newer refurbished iMac out there for less than the cost of a banger-level used car. Ah, the fun never stops. It helps to think of the dollar as the “New Dime.”
At any rate, the following represents fairly what this day was like.
