My web hosting service provider had a problem with one server when he upgraded his entire set up and my blog kept appearing and disappearing for a while.
Many of my readers wrote to me separately about this and I have responded to them individually about the problem. I thank all of them for making me aware of the problem.
As I write this, my blog has been moved to another server and I will now have a new IP address but that will in no way affect accessibility to my blog.
I have been unable to respond to many comments on time because of this problem and I offer my sincere apologies for my inability. I have now responded to all the comments where responses were justified.
Thank you for not deserting my blog during the problem.
