Balmy: We’re experiencing another mini heat wave in the St. Louis area today as the temperatures knock on 60′s door. The bottom drops out tomorrow as we head back to more seasonal weather. Come on springtime!
Glutton for punishment: I’m once again trying to get cable phone and internet service at B&P headquarters. The last effort was a few months ago and it never came to be because the wiring on my street wasn’t useable or I was too far away for service depending on who you talked to. The latter excuse made no sense since there is a box farther down the street than my house. They’ve since installed new underground cabling and they have a big green box in my front yard. Assuming is actually gets installed, and that’s a big assumption, I’ll end up saving about $30 a month after the 2 year initial deal which will save me about $50 a month. That’s on top of it being much faster than the DSL I currently have which drops the connection every so often. They’re supposed to be here this afternoon to do the installation. So if you don’t hear from me for a few days you’ll know things didn’t go well.
B&P Running Smoothly: After last weekend’s slowdown of the site loading and outage things seem to be running smoothly. We’ve reactivated the plugins and all seems to be well. The solution to the problem was the optimization of the database which was suggested by B&P reader Big Harv. I tried to email Big Harv because I wanted to get his address to send him a reward but the email address he entered with his comment is not working for me. So, Big Harv, if you’re out there send me an email with your name and address and I’ll ship you out a little prize package.
That’s about all from here in sunny, warm St. Louis, what’s going on in your world?
