Finally, PoetrySoup is BACK and with a New Server

Blog Posted:6/19/2019 6:55:00 PM

This week has taught us a lot. First, we miss you Soupers. Second, we value your happiness, and we are not happy unless you are content.

With life, things happen, and as with any mechanical or technological device, things can break or go wrong. This week was an example. Fortunately, it doesn't happen often, and we were able to recover almost everything. The last time something similar happened was about five years ago.

Anyway, welcome to the more stable and maybe faster PoetrySoup, and thank you for being so patient with these upgrades!!!

Thank you for all you do ... I know I sometimes take for granted all that's involved in keeping such a public web site running, and I just want you to know how much I appreciate it, and that I'm thankful for this place that has become a peaceful refuge of sorts for me. Blessings! :-)

Keith, my man, you've gotta get rid of that micro USB ... it just won't do the job. (Hard drive is a whole other subject ... it's all about bytes) ;-) :-D
