Long Term Stasis

As is obvious to the crickets that follow this site I have not posted anything here in quite a long time; a few years in fact. I’ve been posting on Flickr, Facebook and a bit on Instagram. I also have a new website where I post info. on my adventures in amateur radio (ham radio). It is doubtful that I’ll be adding any new content here.

There has been a recent uptick in the number of user registration attempts performed by bots. The goal for these is to post spam comments with links to all sorts of nefarious content/sites. I’ve disabled the ability to register for the site and limited content posting to existing registered users. I’ll leave the site up for the few projects detailed here, like the grandfather clock interior lighting build, that still get a few hits a month.

So long, and thanks for the fish.


Oh drat these computers, they’re so naughty and so complex, I could pinch them!

Sooo….  As some of you may now Amazon Web Services, upon which this blog is running, suffered some ‘issues’ yesterday.  Unfortunately, I was in the middle of doing some work on this site when the problem arose and… long story short…  I lost some files.

I have been able to restore the database that contains all the posts and other data related to the blog but most of the image files posted since last February are bits-in-the-wind.

Thankfully, the links to the full sized versions on Flickr are still valid so if you simply click on the broken image link you’ll see the image in full screen glory.

I’ll try to find time to restore them, but, well… life.


Shemekia Copeland – 2007 Lowell Summer Music Series

photo100 – #81

She was walking through the crowd without a mic and still filling the night with her mighty voice.

Someone off to my right fired off a flash shot (grrrrr… NO FLASH AT CONCERTS!) just as I hit the button. I’m a bit sad that I didn’t manage to get her all in the frame but I kinda like the effect.

You can see all the 2015 Photo100 shots on my Flickr page here:
