Site Back up

Lost email! If you sent an email on tuesday prior to 9PM EST, I probably did not receive it. Please try again!
ArgMax was down briefly this morning. My site host is undergoing an email server update and I think something went wrong.
Just about every page on the site accesses a database to, for example, pull up a headline, a post, a link, or keep count of visitors. So, when the database goes down, so too does the vast majority of the site. That is what happened sometime this morning, but it looks like everything is working now.
Everything, that is, except for email which is still not reaching me!
Looks like time to back everything up again just in case… And time to make things die more gracefully in case it happens again.
