I've recently had a perfect storm of email woes here at this site. Last month, my email servers changed at DreamHost (for reasons I still don't fully understand), breaking all of my approved SSL certificates (not to mention my SMTP settings). Around the same time, I updated to Thunderbird 3.0 from 2.x. The new interface is bizarre, and I've only had problems from day one of the upgrade. As such, I am now actively working towards moving all of Born Geek's email (including this website) to GMail.
Unfortunately, someone is apparently squatting on my domain over at Google Apps. I attempted to reset the account password there, but no secondary email address is on record, making things much more difficult for me. I have started a manual password reset process (via proving to Google that I do indeed own the domain), and hope to have things up and running by this weekend.
Long story short, any direct emails sent to me through the contact form at this website may not be answered for a while. Please bear with me during this painful process.
