Long Description"This book shows how folklore―magic, miracles, and tales of enchanted princesses and genial giants―is still alive and well in the modern mass media.... contains a wealth of facts and observations with which to conjure." ―Journal of Communication "Dégh brings her decades of expertise in folk narrative to bear in this well-researched, provocative study of the interrelationship between traditional processes of folk narrative performances and modern mass media.... Highly recommended... " ―Choice "Spanning folk cultural developments as old as feudalism and as new as today’s TV ad, American Folklore and the Mass Media demonstrates how vital folklore remains, how often it absorbs―rather than being absorbed by―the most dramatic technological innovations and social realignments." ―Carl Lindahl "... all six essays are meaty and informative contributions to vital folkloric issues..." ―Contemporary Legend

This time it wasn't our fault. There were power issues due to a substation down the street catching fire. We don't know the details of how it happened. But we do know that there were a lot of surges and some made it through our UPS to take out our main server.

We keep everything backed up so we only lost about 1 day of data. But because the equipment was damaged we had to rebuild some parts our system from scratch.

Sadly, it took a little longer than expected. Once the main systems came back up there were some confugration issues that we struggled with. But we are back and we have replaced our dead UPS boxes with new ones. They saved most of the equipment from any real damage. Only one box suffered serious damage. It just happened to be our main server instad of one of our backup systems.

Oh well, we will get any lingering bugs ironed out in the next day or two and then start back up on our system upgrade to help speed up the site some more.

Thanks for your understanding.
