Things May Get Ugly

I am in the process of archiving this website. In order to do that I will need to move it to a new hosting provider. During that process, some posts and pages may be unavailable.

The theme and navigation will change. In addition, comments will be closed on all previous and future posts.

I do not anticipate a very long downtime, however, things may not look the same in a few weeks.
