Long DescriptionThe years of late Stalinism are one of the murkiest periods in Soviet history, best known to us through the voices of Ehrenburg, Khrushchev and Solzhenitsyn. This is a sweeping history of Russia from the end of the war to the Thaw by one of Russia's respected younger historians. Drawing on the resources of newly opened archives as well as the recent outpouring of published diaries and memoirs, Elena Zubkova presents a richly detailed portrayal of the basic conditions of people's lives in Soviet Russia from 1945 to 1957. She brings out the dynamics of postwar popular expectations and the cultural stirrings set in motion by the wartime experience versus the regime's determination to reassert command over territories and populations and the mechanisms of repression. Her interpretation of the period establishes the context for the liberalizing and reformist impulses that surfaced in the post-Stalin succession struggle, characterizing what would be the formative period for a future generation of leaders: Gorbachev, Yeltsin and their contemporaries.

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.
