Today, DesignHarbor.com died a sad death. Hard drive failure. Don't worry. I have already obtained backups of the database, and I have the code and datafiles backed up on CD.
But it's a sad day. Patrick Giagnocavo at ZillNet had been doing a heroic job keeping the site running, as a memory of the good times I had with Jonathan Brownell and Sarah Pride in my very first business. I still chuckle when I realize that I began the site over five years ago.
I feel old. I feel like an old friend is dead, if I can feel that way never having lost an old friend.
I have begun to post my articles on this site in the Design Harbor Area. Until this morning, I didn't realize how much writing I did for that site. Wow. I guess I was focused. Of course, the pay was really good. For a while, Sausage Software paid for targeted advertising. Those were fun times, when I could work myself to the bone and revel in the work and in the reward. Now I just work myself to the bone.
While I putter around trying to get things back into shape, feel free to peruse an earlier version of the site, Abscissa Tech.
