Alas, Mad Rants is dead. It has ceased to be, kicked the bucket, shuffled off the mortal coil. It is an ex-website.
I left off funding my hosting for a bit too long and they sent my site off to join the choir invisible. They said it was merely pining for the fjords but I know better. I can tell a dead website when I see one.
This would ideally be the time for me to say "Ah, but I kept backups! It'll be back up in a jiffy!" But no, I didn't. At least not since sometime in 2009. Whoops. I don't think Mad Rants will be back any time soon.
Perhaps I'll get a parrot instead...
