Re: “On the Road with Jerry

Hi Hank,

Hoping to catch your attention here. I just added this new Blogthing to my Google Reader.

But this wasn't easy. At first, I found I was subscribed to the Comments - only.

I could fix this only by doing something 'technical', and that's not what you want.

The answer is to have your web developer change the order of the RSS 'link' lines within each web/blog page. The main weblog RSS needs to come first.

Anyway, congratulations on embedding your weblog with the paper. North Coast Journal is a very valuable resource, I think, locally -- and also for those of us who started our lives there in Humboldt, and like to look to home after the many years.

Regards, Narration

Re: “Web Death

Bob, glad to hear what you've learned. It will be interesting to hear what the RFO says.

The Gmail-spam thing -- it does happen once in a while. Gmail spam traps are very good, letting very little get through. On the other hand, every once in a while something about a message from a source that has been trusted causes a trapping. I just check the Spam on the online Gmail every few days (or more often if something important is awaited). Well worth it for the excellent service, secure access, and excellent spam removal, at least here.

Anyway, while not from the area any more (since 60's), I keep track and may even someday return. So it's very nice to find yours and your wife's business there, in looking up your weblog.

Re: “Web Death

Whoops - the page is here:

Meant to say also that their peering arrangements and proximity to the main US feeds sound very good. At the bottom of the page.

Re: “Web Death

Have a look a this page, which shows pictures of their very substantial power infrastructure. Diesel generators, batteries, high power utility line feeds - each redundant.

I would say something very substantial happened to them, to get past this safety net. When it did, possibly the high-power nature of it all meant it took a little time to physically change out the necessary parts.

Of course the 'operator standing by' and 'salesperson - executive' images are stock photography. Everyone does this.

Re: “Web Death

Well, I had a look at their website, and they seem both very informative, and very substantial.

I would say that these things happen. They actually offer 100% uptime guarantees, which is a measure of their confidence how few times such things will happen.

Maybe you can collect?

Perfection - we'll do better with what's generative...!
