The intermittent downtime today and last week was due to loss of electrical power in the neighborhood. Seems our electric company can't keep the power on anymore. Last week a storm blew in for about 5 minutes, but that heavy rain was enough to take us down several times that day. Today there were no winds or rain, I guess the sun was shining a little too brightly.
For those still interested, I do still plan to seek off-site hosting soon. I had to put moving onto the back burner while I fulfilled my other obligations and I need to secure some more permanent income, but unless things go too wonky, I will find some inexpensive hosting at the end of this month or early next month.
Thank you and my apologies.
