For the past week or so we've experienced an unusual amount of downtime, and last night we had a complete failure of the primary hard drive on our server. This morning the eGullet.org website and database were migrated to a new server, a process that took several hours on account of the size of our database. We are back up and running now, but there may be some residual issues. We are working on them. (It's also possible that some overnight posts were lost in the shuffle, but if so it's a very small number.)

With relish,

One casualty of the server switch has been RecipeGullet. We're working to resolve the situation as soon as possible, but it might be several days before we figure it out.

Thanks for your patience.

RecipeGullet is back up and running, as seem to be all our web services. Please PM or email me, Dave the Cook or chrisamirault if you notice anything else amiss. Many thanks.
