what's hot what's not

Rolling Blackouts

There not just for California anymore. I have been having problems maintaining and updating sites from Arizona. It's not just the connection from your computer, but the switches and routers that plug into the wall. No power No packets. A friend in California has the rolling blackout problem. She couldn't get her files uploaded. to the clients server. She did have email, so she was able to zip em and ship em over. We were happy to load them up for her. Site is up, waiting on the DNS record changes to make the client a happy camper. No link. A gentlemen never tells.
