# NMissCommentor readers: My hosting service is overcapacity due to hits from the Constance McMillen story. Am working on some solution. (circa 9am PDT)
# Well, NMC readers, upped blog server capacity by 1/3- best I can do quickly- but w/ links from Gawker & Perez Hilton you'll need patience. (circa 10am PDT)
# My blog isn't dead, but it's still sleeping. (circa 10:50am PDT)

ETA: 12:57 PDT: the Gawker Post on this story has been updated with a note that at least once prom-goer at Itawamba Agricultural High School has posted prom pictures on their facebook. This does check out---I doubled checked and found that if you peruse Itawamba Agricultural High 2010 profiles on facebook, there are many profile pics for the students which are clearly of prom dresses/couples.
