We’re Back!

After some crazy down­time, I’m glad to see that Tim­o­th­y’s Bur­den and my oth­er sites are back. Hope­ful­ly, such a long-term bout of slow response times and inter­mit­tent down­time won’t occur again. I’m just glad I did­n’t cause the downtime. :) 

Aside from that, I still don’t know how often I’ll be able to post over the next few weeks. I’m not sure how quick­ly Com­cast will switch our ser­vice to our new home, which we close on Thurs­day. We move in Sat­ur­day. I don’t want to be offline for too long–aside from tak­ing care of all my sites (which would­n’t be a big deal if none of them had user-cre­at­ed con­tent like com­ments or forum posts), sev­er­al of my bills are deliv­ered via email notification!

I guess that’s the price I pay for just about being bio­log­i­cal­ly tied to the internet.

As it was when I packed up all of my stuff to get the apart­ment with my wife, it is a bit hum­bling to see the vast major­i­ty of my pos­ses­sions packed away into box­es. Not much is left, and though there is plen­ty of emp­ty space, I haven’t found myself miss­ing any­thing yet (it is quite obvi­ous that my com­put­er is still plugged in and work­ing!). It’s amaz­ing how much stuff we sur­round our­selves with, even if it’s stuff that serves absolute­ly no purpose.

Like I said, I’m not for cer­tain when we’ll get our inter­net access set up at the house, but there is a new web project that I am eager to get start­ed on. I exper­i­ment­ed with the idea sev­er­al months ago, but I think this time it will go much smoother. We’ll see.

  1. ml, could this be the first instance of a down­time that was not caused by Rick?

    “bio­log­i­cal­ly tied to the inter­net” I won­der what a lit­er­al surgery like that would cost…and what would hap­pen if it were to actu­al­ly hap­pen. *shut­ters* I could use the inter­net and not even use a com­put­er, as long as I had some kind of wire­less con­nec­tion. What if I had a cord I need­ed to connect…

    Man, I’m going to stop think­ing about this now.

    *is excit­ed about this new experiement* con­sid­er­ing I know what it is…
