Greetings, all.

Some time ago, when I moved continents, I took down my
elizabethangeek.com website -- running, at that time, on my server at
home on the end of my DSL line --  with the intention of bringing it
back up again fairly swiftly at a new hosting provider.

Unfortunately it took me a very long time.

However, I am now getting it all back together and I wanted to let you
know that the cookbooks I had transcribed are now coming back.

The following are up already:

Hugh Plat's "Delights for Ladies" (partial)

Gervase Markham's "The English Housewife" (cookery section only)

I've got more to come, but I'll let you know when I've done it.

My apologies for the inconvenience; I know that many of you emailed me
asking where they'd got to, and I know I referred a lot of people to the
"wayback machine" (http://archive.org/), and my referer logs show that
many people used it, so I hope that was OK.

If anyone has links to those texts, note that their addresses have
changed, but that the old addresses will redirect.  So if you'd like to
update your links, that'd be great, but if you don't, it'll still work.
