Sorry for the downtime, everyone.

I had some problems with my (previous) hosting company, supposedly for letting my renewal and domain registration lapse. Which was, of course, not the case - I had a year to go...

In any event, I've switched over to MediaTemple - designer-friendly, real tech support, four times the server space, and half the cost. Everything should be resolved by now, because if you're reading this, then everything is working as it should.

While I made the transition, everything went down - for a while, all of itself went down, which killed everything - all my sites as well as email. I apologize if anyone got mail bounced back to them. I assure you, all that has been fixed now.

There may be a few things missing here and there, such as images and the like - I'm going through everything now to make sure all is as it should be.

My main site is currently down for a redesign - everything is a mess now anyways so why the heck not? Hasn't had a major overhaul in something like four years... shame on me. Anyways I'm working on getting the R5 site (as well as the MINI site) more real estate on the front page, instead of being squirreled away as before. Stay tuned...

Yamaha Paper Models

OK, not really news, but cool stuff nonetheless. Yamaha's popular motorcyles have been realistically captured into downloadable paper models. Apparently, "the challenge level and your satisfaction guaranteed!" They even include the YZR M1 US 50th Anniverary Edition with the paint scheme discussed in my post on Friday, July 08, 2005.
