You will notice my earlier post today, “Offline for maintenance” has disappeared. I’ve successfully switched to my new server. I hope you’ll see a performance improvement. I cut the post and archives database before my post this morning. That’s why it disappeared…as did any comments anyone made since yesterday evening.

If I lost your comment, I sincerely apologize. It was unintended.

Thank you for your forbearance during the transition.

The facelift has started

The various repairs to Casa Crucis starts today.  Some minor bathroom repairs today with the new siding starting tomorrow.  After the siding is new gutters.

The siding is generically known as “concrete.” The version we’re getting has the color permanently mixed into the siding.  No more painting!.  The siding has a warranty longer than we expect to live.  It’s more expensive than we had originally budgeted but given the life-span and no need for more painting, the cost/savings-per-year is very reasonable.

The whole project is expected to take 7-10 business days.  Blog posting during this period “may” be intermittent.  At some point, I’ll have to shutdown my server farm when they repair the window behind my desk and servers. 

With all this occurring, I’ve not spied any good topic for posting.  Just check back later…or tomorrow.
