According to the log file, the web server stopped serving requests at approximately 8:18 AM this morning. The problem has been corrected and everything should be up and operational again.

This morning, I discovered the secondary DNS server unplugged. This may have caused the site to be inaccessible over the last few hours or delay the delivery of E-Mail. How did it get unplugged? I am leaning toward some nocturnal activities of a few kitties. 🙂

After 1.5 hours, my inbox is clear. Of the 130+ E-mails I have accumulated in the last few days due to lack of time, I replied to 76 of them… Not a bad ratio, however, if I spent the time to reply to everyone’s technical support request, it would be a full time job. Now, a few stupid stats for you: In the last year (June 23, 2002 to June 23, 2003), I have received (not including spam), 9186 E-Mails. Mostly thanks for the information I provide to the internet [Continue Reading]

Due to the large volume of E-Mail I get daily, it would be impossible to personally answer every technical support question that you may have. However, kind words have always fueled this domain and is appreciated. I currently have 106 unread E-Mails sitting in my inbox (down from 156 yesterday). I will get to them as soon as I have the time.

I am currently testing out a new web server. You are currently accessing the old server. The load will be split between both of these systems. If you have any performance issues, please contact me and I will look into it.

After returning from a visit with my family out of town, I have tons of E-mail to go through.

Well, I feel a little bit better. I received in the E-Mail another virus with two totally different files embedded. It seems as though the virus, like many before it, sucks up a few random files off of someone’s hard drive and sends it out with a bit of text from the document as the subject line. This will have to be chalked up as a BIG coincidence. What is the odds of someone being infected with a virus, attaching my document to it… and then sending it to me? [Continue Reading]
