I’m back. The other boys aren’t, but we’re still here for you. I’m going to be doing some server upgrades the next few evenings so if things get wonky, that may be why.
Hope santy claws left fun things for y`all.
We’re away all over the place right now on vacations. Josh in North Dakota, Pat’s on tour down to florida with Sick Fix, Chris is in New Jersey, and I’m in Nevada. We’re still doing support and all that jazz. Just wanted to keep everyone updated!
After years of speculation and rumors that were touched off almost immediately following the release of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, New Line Cinema and MGM Pictures have announced that a two-film version of The Hobbit (that’s right — TWO parts!!) will be happening, with Peter Jackson at the helm. Early on, there were no direct (public) plans to make The Hobbit. Then, there was acknowledged interest by all parties but Jackson and New Line got into a messy legal dispute about profits owed from the previous Lord of the Rings movies. Now, the two sides have apparently settled their differences and the green light has been given. However, Jackson has stated that he does not want to direct the films because he has obligations to other projects that would keep The Hobbit from being released in time for its initial 2010 projection. This has led to early speculation of Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth) and Sam Raimi (Evil Dead/Army of Darkness and Spiderman trilogies) as possible directorial candidates.
Of course, the top online news/blog/rumor source for all things LOTR-related during the fervor and excitement for the original movies, theonering.net, is buzzing once again at this news after a long period of relative dormancy. Check it out for all the latest!
It’s not that bad. Our main linux webserver had a drive failure, but thanks to our fancy hardware based RAID array, it emailed us. I scrambled over to circuit city, bought a brand new drive and repaired the array & now everythings good as new!
The other day, I had a chance to see Celebration at 2640 in Baltimore… if you get a chance to see this band, go. It’s most of the members of another Baltimore band, Love Life, and they were very good live… Katrina, the singer, has this booming voice and presence, and the crowd was totally swept away… by the end it became a sea of dancing and arm waving. a very good time indeed.
To support one of the friendly organizations we work with (Democracy In Action) I’m writing a SOAP interface to our DNS system. I just wanted to toot our horn a bit and let everybody know that we do custom development as well as web hosting. Check it out!
