Storm Service and Support

     Our services should remain reliable during a storm as all of the equipment is co-located in a facility with UPS power and a generator to provide power during a sustained commercial AC power outage.

     However, support is provided out of my home office.  We do not have UPS power here and Comcast provides our connectivity.  If the power goes out or a tree falls and takes cable down with it, our phones may be dead and I may not be able to access our servers.

     If the storm is severe we may be more difficult to reach by phone because of telephone outages.  It may be more difficult for me to monitor our servers if Comcast cable goes down.  The best thing to do is to call and if you don’t get through to us then leave a message and also send e-mail to support@eskimo.com.  That way if I go some place there is power and I can gain network access, we can get your e-mail.

     Thank you.

Dream of Old Friends

     I had a dream last night involving friends from 40 years ago that used to run a pirate radio station as did I.  I went over to this persons house and there had been a wedding there earlier that day, one of his relatives, not sure who.

     I had a lot of fun with the stations back then, especially early on when we had record support from all the major labels and pretty decent coverage area and yet had not yet acquired the unwelcomed attention of the FCC.

Credence Clearwater Revisited

img_1613     Went to a Credence Clearwater Revisited concert at the Puyallup Fair, they consist of the original drummer and bassist from Credence Clearwater Revival but they’ve got several new people in the band, one of whom, the tall guy that usually does the vocals, was not present in this concert.  Instead the guy who is the new lead guitarist also handled vocals and honestly I think he is a closer fit for Fogerty than the other guy.  Sorry can’t remember names, I’ve always been bad with names.

     Anyway, it was a good concert, played a lot of my favorites and they did a good job for a bunch of old farts.
