Introduction I admit it. I enjoy people contacting me and asking technical questions. I also enjoy sharing my knowledge with strangers (people that do not contact me but surf on in) as well as, sometimes, the desperate people asking me for help as a “last resort.” As with anything, this also has its limits. This page contains “all too frequent” questions that are “Impossible To Answer by E-Mail.” The reason behind this is not to make anyone angry or shun people from contacting me.

No matter how much preparation someone may do, nothing is more of a test then going "live." After a weekend of watching the web server logs, monitoring the E-Mail server, and replying to positive feedback, I feel the transfer has been a success. Thank you, kind reader, for your support during this transition. Long time readers may see slight changes in the way the site appears, mainly due to the reduction in bandwidth that I have against what my old ISP had, but nothing drastic.

I made a few more adjustments to see if I can narrow down the cause of "slight delay," many times several seconds, while attempting access to the domain. If you experience slow performance, please let me know. It would be greatly appreciated.

Upon further investigation (why www.blkviper.com is down), my previous ISP’s whole city lost power @ approximately 3:00 PM. All of the UPS did not make it for as long as the power has been off. Service was going to be restored by the local Power Co @ 6:00 PM, but that has not happened as of yet.
