Apologies and thanks to everyone for their patience these past few days that we have been offline. As you no doubt know from reading our last post, the surge of traffic owing to Monday’s interview being featured on Gawker overloaded our server. The problem really shouldn’t have been such an issue, but what are you going to do? Were just happy to be back and presuming that its business as usual (for the moment) we’d like to pick up the slack with Friday’s Hairy Eyeball, a round up of news from the week. Check back tomorrow for our new weekend feature, Jet Set Saturdays.

Welcome back!
