Sometimes you go to a restaurant and your waiter takes everyone’s order with his hands folded behind his back, nodding and smiling at the selections without writing down a single thing. I always wonder nervously if it’s going to work out, and miraculously, most of the time it does.
But sometimes your server totally screws you.
Such is this case this week with our web server. This site was down most of the day yesterday. It’s live again but recent posts are missing. I am having trouble loading posts with pictures. Old posts are mysteriously being emailed out to subscribers. Egad.
My apologies to the Outdoor Channel who posted a link to my most recent post and sent thousands of viewers to a page that the server has since 86-ed somewhere in the alley behind the kitchen with the fry cook who’s recently out on parole and probably high and spitting in everyone’s food.
Many thanks to Tom Chandler at the Trout Underground who graciously hosts this site and is in the trenches trying to right all of these server wrongs.
So bear with me friends. We are going to be serving things family style for awhile here. Meaning we’ll get what we get and we’ll just have to be happy about it, focusing instead on sparkling conversations and lots of laughs.
