Network maintenance progress report

We still have a long way to go, but we've also made a lot of headway. At this point I'd say we're halfway to where we need to be in terms of upgrading the network and relaunching the core website.

Note that we are not changing the design (look and feel), just improving accessibility and adding content.

When we started back in mid December we had the idea that we could be done before 2006 arrived. Things have taken a lot longer than we expected. It's not just the core website that needs work, it's also Permanent Defense's site.

Even the Official Blog and Pacific NW Portal need updates now, but don't worry, we aren't going to bring either site offline to do the upgrades.

I'm looking forward to the completion of this project, because it sets the stage for even greater things to come later this year and beyond.

By the way, I want to address a rumor that's been going around the blogosphere over the last twenty four hours. Some people seem to think that Andrew "exiled" himself because of the reaction to last Friday's post. That's not the case.

He just decided that he needed some time off so he could rest. Blogging was taking up too much of his time and he really wants to take the lead on completing this big network maintenance project.

So he's taking a short (and in my opinion, well-deserved) break. I can assure you he will be back. I'll be posting much more regularly until he returns.
