I miss it too,

I've got one person set up (or in the process of setting up) to take  
it over. I'll be happy to help anyone else get set up (the tools are  
nontrivial to use at first). The current plan, when I finally get back  
on my feet, is to have multiple editors trading off weeks/months/ 
timeframetobedetermined to minimize downtime such as this. I would  
like to really apologize to the community, I had thought I had the  
problems fixed, then I ran into some financial difficulties, and  
couldn't finish fixing the machine. Pride kept me from asking for  
someone to take over the HWN in my absence, that was silly, you guys  
would (as I can see) have jumped at the chance to help. Please send me  
an email if you'd like to help, I have a little tutorial tome I can  
forward you that will get you set up, and we can work out a schedule  
with the other editor(s).

Having 5 or 6 editors to cycle through will be ideal, I think, that  
way we have a fair amount of redundancy to prevent situations like this.
