Yesterday (4/16/14) shortly before 1PM we began experiencing problems with our server. We noticed problems connecting to several websites and began investigating what appeared to be dropped packets and sluggish response times. By about 1:30PM the server began being intermittently unreachable and it went offline completely by 3PM. At that point all of our client websites (and ours as well) became unreachable. While it is within the realm of normal to have occassional hiccups that may make a server unreachable for a few short moments, it became apparent there was a much more serious issue at play as minutes turned to...

Star Wars... It's a popular topic in the office. Which is why the announcement of the release date for Star Wars Episode VIII (December 18, 2015) was kind of a big deal here.

These Pancake shapes are so cute you won't even want to eat them (but you will).  Most of us don't have... Read More

So- I have to assume that everyone read my FASCINATING introductory blog that was recently posted (If you haven’t, shame on you- go read it now and then come back). I’ve already started my takeover of our online blog presence! Which is why I’m switching up the Friday Props form and writing it from my perspective. No mysterious ghost writer here!  It’s kind of a big deal to write these... It caused me a little anxiety about what I would do. So I listened to some Podcasts and got an idea.  As you (now) know, I’m in my Senior year of Nursing... Read More
