Yes,,,, and a few other sites are down. Should be back tomorrow.—@ndw
@ndw is down (used in your flickr1.xsl library). Is this related to the other sites?—@erikespana
@ndw I noticed it today. Do you have an estimate of when that file will be back online?—@erikespana
@ndw What about hosting the file on your github account, until your websites are restored?—@erikespana
@erikespana I'll see what I can do today. Not sure what the story is...—@ndw
@erikespana I didn't think that was down. Other sites still are :-(—@ndw

Looking for a project for a summer intern? How about an XInclude 1.1 implementation? I'm just sayin'...—@ndw

Toothpicks soaked in Islay single malt then kiln dried. Because you can never be too hipster.—@ndw
@ndw now you need to make them and report back!—@alexmilowski
@ndw You have my attention, sir. :)—@mdubinko
@mdubinko Perhaps I should have been more clear. I saw an ad for a $35 box of toothpicks, I didn't actually buy them!—@ndw
@ndw I thought you made them…—@laurendw
@laurendw @ndw I thought he was sneaking liquor into somewhere it shouldn't be!!!—@dpawson
@ndw Ahh, I thought you were describing a maker-style project you undertook.—@mdubinko
