A New Look
I apologize for the lack of content lately. I have had the intentions of creating several new posts, but the world it seems has conspired against me! I was just sitting down to compose a new article when an email arrived saying my web hosting company was going out of business, and that I had less than a month to react. There was a choice to be made on whether to continue the site or not to, and you see here the resulting decision, to keep it up. It was actually quite a wrenching decision for me, as I find myself with much less time these days, but so enjoy keeping up the site and the people I have conversed with because of its creation. In the end, that's what won me over to continue.
So first came the move. I had no idea just how large this site had become... The move took quite a while, and took a good deal of work to keep it running in the background so the switch would appear seamless to anyone viewing it. I also administer several other web sites besides this one, adding to the complexity of the move.
During the same time I also had several real life projects with crushing deadlines, and of course the normal crushing deadlines that are the annual holidays - and finally, a bout with the flu completely took the wind out of my sails.
So - enough whining. Since I don't think such a big behind-the-scenes change should go completely unheralded, I decided to update the looks of the site with a new theme, one I hope is more flexible and attractive. I'll be tweaking it over the next month or so, and adding some new content as I get time to get it down.
I've finished the radio cabinet, so look for the final entry on that project; I've also got a good start on an article on sloping gullets that should follow shortly after. Plus, I have some other projects I'm pursuing that I can finally dig into now, so wish me luck on getting it all done!
I hope you find the new look of the site pleasing!
