What’s up with Matt?

You may notice that my website has been down for a long time, and is now just a placeholder (thanks for the hosting, Mikey).  Well, late last year (October or November) my web server died.  I think the processor overheated.  It’s pretty old hardware, and parts are hard to come by or significantly overpriced.  I was looking for a cheap (read free) replacement box, but haven’t really found one yet.  So, that’s why I don’t have a web server.  Then, a month or two ago, my main computer crapped out.  I think the processor was zapped when the PSU went out.  PSU has been replaced, new processor and heat sink ordered.

While all of that was happening, Sam has been growing and doing all kinds of things that we’ve been wanting to keep track of.  We take tons of pictures, but Nikki was also wanting to write some thoughts down.  I had initially hoped to get my web server back up and host it and all that, but I just didn’t have the time.  I checked out a couple free blogging hosts, and settled on WordPress.  She really seems to like it.  Then I recommended it to my sister, who has been posting pretty prolifically about her English teaching stint in Lithuania.

Having thought of several things to blog about in the past 10 months and not having anywhere to do so, I realized that I should just bite the bullet and use wordpress myself.  Maybe when I get the web server running again I will install the wordpress.org software instead of hosting it here at wordpress.com, but maybe not (having to pay for CSS editing kinda blows, though).

    I just found you! I know we give you little time to write, but it’s good to see things that you’ve put into words. Here’s hoping that you keep at it while you’re waiting to fix your computer. =)

I would like to thank Mike Hellrich for hosting a couple redirects for me while I sort out my web server problems.
