There is no one more capable of providing an entertaining “this site is under construction/this site is having problems” then Fishrush. This is the person who should be designing the front end to ThreadNeedle.
However, Fishy One, must get you off of Tripod. Would you like a nice, temporary fishrush.burningbird.net, instead? No popup ads.
(Or would close proximity to the Bird that Burns poach Fishy?)
