  • Site Outage Notice for LonghornBlogs.com & Others

    As some of you might have already known, my company hosts it's servers at ServerBeach. They're a great hoster, and have treated us very well. They were recently bought out by a European hosting company called Peer1, and have since constructed a new datacenter. Last week, our servers were moved to the new facility, and over the past week, InterscapeUSA.com, LonghornBlogs.com and other sites have been experiencing intermittent outtages. I confirmed on Thursday that the hard drive on our webserver is failing (most likely damaged in transit), which is the reason for the current outtage.

  • Thinking Of You, Chris Sells

    My roommate has a bathroom book called "The Rules: A Man's Guide to Life." by Esquire Magazine. I was sitting reading it the other day (use your imagination.... actually, please don't) and I came across Rule 390, which made me think of Chris Sells. I will give you just a second to snicker at that while I type the rule.

    Rule 390: If you wonder, even momentarily, about the toilet and shower facilities at Burning Man, you're tool old to attend.

    Enjoy.

  • New CSverter build (50301) - Fixes for Single Blogs

    Lots of people have been having problems getting CSverter to work for single blog configurations. With the help of a couple people, I figured out why, and have coded a fix for it. This version also fixes some problems with the web service, and has cleaner logging. The logging and UI status updates are very complex, and are still undergoing refinement.
