So, at last, we’re back on. It’s been a rough couple of days for Dale, who really worked hard to track down the problem.

First, it looked like RAM might be the problem. New memory didn’t help, however, so the next thing was maybe a bad/failing hard drive. And it was when he tried to install the OS on another drive that the real cause cropped up. Kinda sorta.

It was the computer itself. Exactly where is unknown. BIOS? Motherboard? Didn’t matter. It was simpler to just move to another machine. Simpler being a relative term in this case.

Now that the site is up again, I’ve posted for all three days (changing the time stamp as appropriate), Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (today). And keep your fingers crossed that everything holds together now. Whew!
