From the Vault

Ah, the joys of moving.

All you Nelsons know what I mean, it’s in our blood. Call it what you like, nomadic, fidgeting, or even restless legs syndrome, but we don’t tend to stick in one place too long. Speaking of which, the place where I have lived for nearly 3 years now, is the longest I’ve been in one home since…1996 when we lived at 175 S Main in Providence. And I’ve had no other residence longer than 3 years in my whole life except for that one. I count this as my 29th residence in a mere 32 years of life. But I digress.

I’m not announcing that we are moving from this home, but what got me on that tangent was the move from one web hosting company to another. The joys of moving, of course, are two-fold. 1) Throwing out stuff that you don’t want to carry any longer and 2) Finding old treasures that, what the heck, you’ll carry a little longer. Take your pick which camp you think the following photo belongs in. This was taken October 10, 2003 at the Annual Providence Sauerkraut Dinner. Phil really missed out on this one.

Fortunately for him and many others, I have preserved this for posterity. Perhaps now would be a good time to really move before the lynching party arrives.

Site relocation

Just a quick note to inform everyone that the site is back up. Hopefully you haven’t given up on us. I have not been very diligent in writing lately, and this past few weeks we’ve decided to switch web hosts, which hasn’t helped our “uptime”.

The move to a new host has gone rather well. For those that care, we are now working with a company by the name of Arvixe. Unlimited bandwidth and storage, unlimited subdomains, and we can have as many as 6 domains on a single account. Huzzah! If anybody would like to register a domain and park some pages, I’m more than happy to help. If you find any bugs, broken links, etc. please let me know so I can fix them!

In the meantime, I hope to pick up the pace on contributing to this blog and have a few other pet projects up my sleeve — when Anya gives me time to work on them (the disclaimer of our family’s life for the past 15 months).

More on the way!
