intermittent downtime

Filed under
Site News

The intermittent downtime today and last week was due to loss of electrical power in the neighborhood. Seems our electric company can't keep the power on anymore. Last week a storm blew in for about 5 minutes, but that heavy rain was enough to take us down several times that day. Today there were no winds or rain, I guess the sun was shining a little too brightly.

For those still interested, I do still plan to seek off-site hosting soon. I had to put moving onto the back burner while I fulfilled my other obligations and I need to secure some more permanent income, but unless things go too wonky, I will find some inexpensive hosting at the end of this month or early next month.

Thank you and my apologies.
