The Data Center is Moving to its new Home

July 31, 2020
The Data Center is moving and we expect to be down from 2020-08-14 (Friday) to 2020-08-18 (Tuesday).  This will impact all of our services except incoming email.  Most of our data collection system will remain functional, but we will have no way of importing and reporting anything.  In fact, all reports will be suspended until we come back up.

As we had previously stated, we are moving.  Or I should say we have moved.  It was a huge amount of effort by many of the team members.  A big thanks goes out to them all for the work, long hours, and back breaking exercise that no geek enjoys.

From Four Guys and a Garage to Something Nice

October 19, 2016
Well, as many of you know, we have always been kind of the underground heroes of the Internet.  We have scraped by with used gear, volunteers, and parts that fail often.  We have told stories about our failures and the tribulations of being a non-profit.  While none of that has really changed, we have finally gotten something nice.
