Essays Gone

I took the liberty of removing the “Essays” sections because, well, I never write anything there and it’s a pain to maintain it in the news desk application. So, screw it.

This new version of the NewsDesk application (0.96) has been altered and tested on the new web host and appears to be working now. And, amazingly enough, it appears to still work on the old web host.

Imminent uvtek.net Server Move

I am hopeful that I will be able to move uvtek.net from Communitech.net to Omnis Network on or about October 2nd. Keep your fingers crossed!

I have found Communitech.net (now owned by Interland) to be the best web host I’ve ever seen (of the perhaps dozen that I’ve personally used) in terms of speed and reliability, however Omnis Network offers the same features at substantially cheaper cost, which is a Good Thing at this point in my life.

With any luck, it won’t take more than a day or two to get the uvtek.net name switched over so that our email will not be interrupted for too long. (It may take a bit longer to get the news engine back up and running though.)

Recent Events

I haven’t written much here lately because I’ve been preoccupied with, of all things, Celtic arts and crafts. During my vacation from work I got pretty involved in a book on Celtic knotwork. I find it a fascinating form of art because it’s both scientific and creative.

I’ve also added a link to my first set of Micro-Stories, which is an ongoing creative exercise I’ve been doing wherein I write a one-page story (almost) every night.

Since I’m back at work now, my creativity is being crushed out of me again… err… I mean, I don’t have as much time for creative ventures, so I’ve slacked off on this stuff a bit, but I hope to continue some woodcarving projects off and on. (I used to do this kind of stuff back in high school.)
