Wow, that outage was an absolute outrage.

I'm very sorry for the inconvenience it must have caused you all. I'm personally very frustrated about the whole thing being at the mercy of a very poor (yet expensive) service provider who gives me absolutely no update whatsoever.

I could vent further, but I'd rather move on.

The fact is, we're back up and running.

There may be some further disruption soon as I will be moving The Spoof to a new hosting platform. Please be assured that I will do everything to make sure that the transition is a smooth one.

Once again, many apologies.

My spoof nuts are bursting and ready to explode after holding in my spoofs all weekend. Prepare for spoof all over your face, any minute now.

I'm glad we are back up and running. Although the break did give me a chance to trim my eyebrows. It was about time really as they were starting to drop over and cover my eyes.

Good work Mark. It must have been a stressful couple of days for you!

Some of us know what's really going on...

the "Ministry of Truth" doesn't like TheSpoof's credibility over-shadowing its message.

I have discovered the joys of downhill piano playing, and shall be doing this until the muse for spoofing returns.

If 42 is the answer, the question is if 24 looks in the mirror, who does she see?

When I was on safari in Kenya, I plugged a bull elephant with the old blunderbuss, cut the blighter's tusks off with a chainsaw and had a native chappie make me a chess set out of them. Don't talk to me about bloody ivories.
