Hi druids! Restokin(.com) is back.

My blog (restokin.com) went down for about a week with technical issues. I just wanted to let you guys know that it is back up and running now! We got the site back online last night and everything seems to generally be working. We lost a lot of data (about 7 months worth of posts), so we had to re-post a bunch of our older posts, and we lost any comments that were on those posts. /sad face

Restokin.com still doesn't show up on google searches yet, so you have to go to the site directly. Searching for the site in google may start working again some time in the next few days (crosses fingers).

I'll be here for analyzing all the MOP stuff, posting feedback on both the forums and my blog as we get new class updates. I'm super excited to have everything working again. I am really excited about MoP info coming "soon".

First thing I thought, when you said "Restokin is back" was the old deep balance healing spec from TBC. :P Can't think of the talent down there that was amazing for healing, but it was a cool spec. haha

This is exactly what I thought... I actually furrowed my brow and said "... how can you get any good healing talents as balance ? ? ?"

I changed the title to be more specific.

People have been posting in the forums about my site being down this week, so I wanted to let people know its back.

There won't ever be hybrid resto/moonkin builds ever again guys. :)

and we're all saddened by this (why does sad get an extra 'd' in 'saddened'? this language is dumb...)

Much better and welcome back. I also noticed that druidify had a slump in visitors last week and when I checked referrers I saw why - restokin was down >_<

grammar lesson time:
http://www.spelling.hemscott.net/suffix4B.html
If the base word has:
one syllable
one short vowel
(the short vowels are ham, bed, lip, rot, gun)one consonant at the end
you double the final consonant when you add a vowel suffix.

now that grammar lesson is done... It's been a really stressful week. I'm just glad the blog is back up and running.

I wasn't question the rule... having rules is fine. The fact is that the rule's existence is dumb.

I'm sorry you had a stressful week... want some waffles? We gots waffles ^_^

It's true that there are many silly rules in English grammar. This one in particular, however, makes perfect sense because it keeps pronunciation rules consistent (not that THOSE are always consistent, though. But anything that does actually promote consistency in language is a good thing, IMO.).

If you didn't double the consonant on one-syllable, short vowel/consonant words, you'd have to pronounce them differently. So, sad and saden (sadden) would no longer sound the same. The first would be the short a sound as usual, but the second would be a long a sound (pronounced like the first a in satan).

So, without the double consonant in sadden, we'd either have to have inconsistent pronunciation rules, or change the official pronunciation of words like that (which is really, really hard to do).

Bah! I can't believe I've been fooled by 2 necros in the past week. I'm usually good at that sort of thing.
