You may well be asking "why is she home on a workday?" The answer to that one is pretty simple. I woke up with a headache. When that happens, I spend all day with the thing. And frankly, there's nothing to do at work, so why go in and be miserable? I can be in just as much pain in my bed. Or working on the cranky letter to the insurance folks or whatever.
Oh, and DNS is hosed on my computer, so the site's still down. At least to the outside world.
