sorry for the delayed outage for the past week+. i’d been working with some local chapters to host their sites on here and was in the process of setting them up with a blog. something went wrong with my hosting provider’s installer that crossed the wires so they had to restore the blog database from a backup. unfortunately, they had to go back further than i preferred, but i’m very glad we didn’t lose everything. big thanks to chase up in oregon for taking care of it. i’ll be going trying to remember the missing posts and re-post them.
