Married, Birthday, Anniversary & Back

Saturday, May 8th, 2010

Well it’s been about a year since I’ve posted to this blog. There are a number of reasons for this.

1. I got married and didn’t have time to write blog posts or anything of that nature!
2. I couldn’t write blog posts for much of the time because I was in the process of migrating the entire site from one host to another plus migrating the back-end of the site from one master data management system to a new master data management system. This took a lot longer then expected because we had to back up the database of course then re-migrate the database to the new system, and finally deploy it in the new system plus a whole new testing phase and of course we ran into a lot of problems along the way. As is the story of my life.

For those of you who have been faithful to this site you might remember all the problems I’ve been having. Well I finally found an old friend who could really help me get things lined up properly. More about that later.

So what all has happened! Well basically everything has completely changed in my life! As I said I’ve gotten married exactly 1 year ago today. Today is also my birthday. In addition to that my wife just got a new job! Plus we just closed on our first house and finished getting moved in! So needless to say I’ve been SUPER BUSY!!!!

So you can expect that I have a lot to talk about, but of course I can’t fit it all into a single blog post!

Hopefully we will have the new slide-show system online soon for the new site. Also the forums are nearly finished but they need some stuff to be updated so I’ll be working on that. We are doing some new templates for a new system we hope to roll out to the site.

When all of this stuff moves forward then we should start to see tons of new content on the site and I really can’t wait!

I hope to have a lot more stuff for the blog and I definately have a lot of updates to write about!

Ok, so about my friend who is helping me get this site sorted out. This is a friend that I’ve known personally for about 23 years now! He is the best friend I’ve ever known and probably ever will know in my entire life! With so many years experience as friends he is like a brother to me and I’m like a brother to him indeed I probably know him better then his own family knows him. ;-D

My friend has been in the website and web-apps business for a good many years now and I decided to bring him in as my web-dev manager! It turns out it was the one best move that I could have ever done, I just wish I could have done it sooner. My friends name is Eric and his web/biz development company is

He also has a number of other sites:

He has also helped me to totally revamp the web page.

As you will see we have a whole new interface and design! We’ve also totally revamped the back-end of that site, added support to hosting seed-files for Orbiter distribution through torrents, and there is a whole lot more going on right now!

That’s all the time I have for today, so I hope you have as wonderful a day as we have planned!
