Myth & Moor update

May Day in Chagford by Carol Amos

Typepad, the platform that hosts Myth & Moor, has had massive problems over the last few weeks as they've moved from one data centre to another. While many issues have been resolved, other problems remain and this blog isn't functioning 100% normally yet. You may find pages hard to load, art still missing on a number of pages, and I'm still having difficulties in publishing new posts like this one. But the hardworking engineers at Typepad are on the case (it's a platform-wide issue) and it should all settle down soon.

Thank you all for your patience with Myth & Moor has been on hiatus. As many of you know, it's been a rough summer and autumn for us; but a new season is ahead and I look forward to sharing it with all of you. I'll be back just as soon as I can be.

Pictures above: Celebrating May Day here in Chagford last spring, with storyteller & folklorist Lisa Schneidau (whose books I hope you all know), our village Jack-in-Green (Lisa's husband, naturalist Tony Whitehead), our 'Obby 'Oss (Howard) and the Oss Minder (me). Now we are heading into the dark of the year, also rich with folklore and magic.

Myth & Moor has been down for a week now due to system-wide problems that the blogging platform, Typepad, is having with their new data center. Don't worry, Myth & Moor isn't disappearing. Typepad is working hard to fix these issues, and I hope we'll be back online again properly soon.

This is the first time I've been able to get into the site even to post a message -- but other problems remain. If you can't see the blog's banner art, or any of the art in these posts, be assured they are working to fix this across the platform.

Thanks for your patience, and I hope to be back soon. In the mean time, communication by balloon might be our best bet.
