Some of you might have noticed that the site was down for about a day. That’s because yesterday my Graphene theme wanted to be updated from 1.9.something to 2.0 . Fine, sez I, and hits update. Turns out 2.0 is incompatible with older versions of PHP. This is the second time I’ve gone down because …
