Did you miss us?  

Well, anyhow it’s good to be back online, any more offline time would have warranted a search party. Unfortunately the PTF site was down for four days due to the hosting company moving to another NOC (network operations center).   They said in their email last week that this move would only take a day (Sat) but of course they ran into unexpected problems. In this modern world a down time of over 96 hours is really unacceptable.   Honestly, I really wish they’d been more considerate and put up a holding page saying something like “this site is down for maintenance upgrades.”  

This would have saved readers, or reader, the worry…. Thank you to Helen from Needles for your email and concern, nice to know that there is someone who cares – you are certainly like family to us and we are glad that you join us every morning with your cuppa coffee. 😉

Finally I can post the backlog of journal entries….. there’s a lot, so here it goes….

    Should I admit this? But, yes, I missed you and was terribly worried and about to contact you!

    But then, said, “that’s life!” and I’m sure PTF certainly has enough of a offline one to lead…

    We missed you too, Wildside. Thanks for the warm welcome. 😉

    Unfortunately, our hosting provider says that there is still some sporadic problems as they work hard to troubleshoot and put out all the flames this move has caused. This move came as a surprise and downtime was expected to last less than a day. Didn’t work that way.

    We are all safe and still plugging away here on the urban homestead we just were incommunicado for four days and now hopefully back online!

    Believe me, PTF readers, there’s a lot of catching up to do….. stay tuned.

    Glad to see you are back, I missed you – but was hoping it was due to the new website going up. (It’s hard to be patient, but I am sure it will be well worth the wait.)

    I missed the neighborhood as well; every morning after checking for new journal entries from you,
    I check the neighborhood for new posts. You are definitely a big part of my morning routine!

    I’m super glad it was just tech problems! I was worried, too, and was thinking about e-mailing you guys, but figured, since I’m just a random reader you don’t know, I’d give it another day or two before I wrote. I am one happy camper and glad you guys are back online!
