As of yesterday evening, Gawker's network of sites bounced back up after Hurricane Sandy violently swept through the North East.

In the downtime interim, we'd been posting on our Kotumblr, bringing our regulars to a temporary platform and meeting new readers in the meantime. So from everyone at Kotaku, from our headquarters in New York City to the far stretches of the Eastern hemisphere, we'd like to thank you for your continued support.

It was fun contributing on Tumblr, but we're happy to be back to normal again, with NYC slowly following suit. And don't forget you can find out about helping the hurricane survivors here.
