From some quick searching, I strongly suspect the issue was caused by a web hosting automation program called Plesk* Server Administrator (now Parallels Plesk Panel) which I bet your hosting service uses (or used) to manage their stuff (the software seems to create "saved_by_psa" files, anyway). The hosting folks probably have something misconfigured--may be worth a check. Or wait until next year and see if there is a repeat.

*Apparently designed in Novosibirsk, Russia--commie malware!

Yes, it is plesk-related; I mean, I knew that much. Why it did what it did in particular I don't know.

"Plesk" sounds like it should refer to some kind of preserved fish.

On the contrary. The site died on Friday and on the third day it rose again. Clearly, Jesus is the blog.

Wow, that's something I never thought about. Apparently all this time when we've been saying that Jesus was dead for three days, we really should have been saying "two days and a bit". Because clearly from Friday to Sunday is only two days, right?

Unless you're talking from early in the morning Friday to late at night Sunday. But I doubt Jesus died early in the morning. Partly because of all the stuff that supposedly went on before he actually died, partly because crucifixion is a famously slow way to go, partly because execution doesn't seem like a morning activity, and partly because he's always shown on the cross with the sun behind him, which if it's intended to be a literal depiction would make it either the evening or very early in the morning indeed. And as for when he got up, Jesus's tomb was supposedly found vacant... I have no idea when, I associate it with the morning hours because that's when Easter services are, but that's completely illogical, isn't it.

So his tomb could have been opened late, by torchlight for all we know. And all the events of his bad Friday morning might not have taken very long. So if he expired at 10 a.m. Friday and came back any time after 10 p.m. Sunday, then rounded to the nearest full day, that's three days dead. I guess I would already know this if I had ever seen Mel Gibson's movie.

Jesus actually rose on a Monday, but they celebrate it on Sunday because its more convenient to have Easter on a weekend.

Didn't Jesus get off easy on the whole crucifixion thing? Isn't it supposed to take several days to die that way, but Jesus died after twelve hours?

George Washington actually rose from the dead on Wednesday, and Lincoln rose from the dead on Thursday. Fortunately we now have pro-Monday forces dictating our holidays as heebie suggests in 28.

Mondays are clearly much preferable to Fridays, as a holiday.

If you have a Friday off, then your four day week, happy anticipation, and actual day off are all crammed into a five day period.

But if you have a Monday off, your happy anticipation cheers up a five day week, and then your sadness of returning to work is tempered by your pleasure of a four day week. Win-win-win.

but Jesus died after twelve hours?

Are you calling Jesus a wuss?

When Jesus stepped inside the cage of life to take on the cross, human legs did not kicked his out from under him. It was not human hands that broke his arm during the arm bar of adversity. It was not a human fist that knocked him to the mat for our sins. It was not a human that kept him inside the triangle choke of suffering. It was not the fighter's sent by Satan to tap him out that beat him.

God gave him strength while on his back being pounded in the face by the elbows of sin. Those same hands that formed the universe. Those same hands that held you and me before the foundation of the world.

Take a jog out to the mountain of the skull. Out to the cross where, with holy blood, the hand that placed you on the planet wrote the promise, "God would give up his only Son before he'd Tap Out on you.

Truly, Jesus Didn't Tap! - Are you tapping out on him?

That doesn't sound like a standard crucifixion to me.

If they could stretch it out a bit more, it could be like Passover as celebrated by the Egyptians if Moses hadn't done so well. I've been working on a Haggadah-ish thing.

On all other nights, we eat leavened bread, but tonight we eat only corn bread?

Because we got corn, plus a bunch of otherwise dull places to grow it.

If I recall high school Latin class correctly, Romans counted elapsed periods of days differently than we do. If something happens tomorrow, that's two days from now -- today and tomorrow. Day after tomorrow is three days from now -- today, the intervening day, and the day it happens. So counting Friday to Sunday as three days was conventional.

(This all assumes I'm remembering high school correctly and not confabulating something, of course.)

I'm not sure I understand the problem. The Catholic version I hear in my head on repeat due to years of repetition is "on the third day, He rose again in fulfillment of the scripture", which third day would be Sunday. Anecdotal, of course.

chinese people count inclusively as well. my daughter argues that, since she will be turning 9, which is 10 according to chinese people, then since I said when she asked me at, like 4 when she could have a cellphone and I said, I don't know, 10? that she should get a cellphone for her next birthday, on the grounds that I am sending her to a chinese school and making her take mandarin classes for hours each day.
