Server Problems Implode Weekend

by Paul Gilster on April 18, 2009

And I thought I was going to more or less take the weekend off, maybe finishing up a second reading of Rare Earth and enjoying some of the delightful spring weather that has taken hold around here. So much for that. Server issues caused this site to be transferred to a new server, which subsequently brought the whole site down. When it came back up, most of my customizations were gone and I haven’t yet figured out how to get them back. It’s been a long day and I’m not sure how long this is going to take, so please bear with me. It seems more important to get the site up and running again even if it’s suddenly in a minimalist guise. I’ll tune it back up as time permits.

Paul: I am thinking that enjoying the weather might be more important…yes, we are all hungry for our golden words:-), but we are experiencing a similar incredible bout of weather here in Florida, and I know I’d rather not fuss with computers.

Take the day off…the universe will wait.

Thank you both! But I’m obsessive about these matters and find myself right back here this morning running some tweaks. Maybe a nice walk later in the day…

Well, things have at least stabilized, so I plan to get in the walk this afternoon. Much site adjustment remains to be done, but the emergency stuff is over with (I hope) and things can begin to settle down. What a weekend!
