This week my publisher begins our weekly author support group call. I will detail this, because I think it’s an innovative way to build a community from people who will likely never meet in person. If it works, maybe someone else can use the idea to their own benefit.
I have to move my websites to a different (better?) server. It’s called ‘reprovisioning’ in IT double-speak, but what it really means is ‘pain in my ass.’ This particular site promises to be very, very easy, since Automattic has offered to do most of the work for me. But we’ll see. I’ve been working in IT for a very long time, and nothing is ever as easy as it seems. This week, for instance, has been ‘Get Don To Do Stuff He Hasn’t Done In 15 Years’ Week.
I’m asking you to please, bear with me. This site may be up and down the next few days, as this moving mess works itself out. My post about tomorrow’s meeting may be this weekend, for all I know. Things will smooth out eventually. I hope.
In the meantime I’ll brush up on my old MS-DOS commands, because the way things are going I’ll probably need them.
