so the machine that is SITO.org seems to still have something wrong with it. we will keep at it, but there may be some more outage. in interest of giving hard-core sito fans something to read about while the beloved server is crashing, i have created SITO : Off-site STATUS page <sito.scribble.com> . of course, you will need to know this url *while sito is gone*, so bookmark it now, i guess.
in other news, we are doing some cosmetic (and under-the-hood) changes to some pages, most notably the artchives. we are implementing some stylesheets (like 4 years after it was cool), which will hopefully allow us to have customizable looks for sito ("skins" as the kids are calling them), eventually, and just a more user-friendly default page more immediately.
in short -- pardon our dust and exploding server! *thanks for hanging in there*
