welcome to new wye

Hello and welcome to New Wye, the temporary home of the Zembla you know and love when Cementhorizon is unavailable. Zembla's server continues to be attacked by pirates, hackers, and possibly even a squirrel, and has been for the past few weeks. Rather than deprive the Internet of its Sean Keane goodness, such goodness will be moved here until the real Zembla is again accessible.

A note on the name: "Zembla" is the distant northern kingdom in Nabokov's Pale Fire, which may only exist in the delusional mind of the novel's unreliable narrator. "New Wye" is the university town in the same novel, the real-world setting for the novel's action, such as it is. While Zembla is a place of questionable reality, subject to the vagaries of memory and the whim of imagination, New Wye is solid, a concrete location.

Zembla currently exists only in the imaginations and memories of its many fans worldwide. Unless Blogger gets attacked by robots and its programmers stalked by crazed anti-royalist assassins, New Wye isn't going anywhere. Sit back, relax, and spend some time in New Wye, just until Zembla is fixed up and ready to go.

Or, you know, disappears forever. It could really go either way when squirrels are involved.
