|Long Description||GORE VIDAL'S LINCOLN A believer in personal freedom with dreams of preserving the Union, Abraham Lincoln spent his first days in office contending with generals who refused to fight, and politicians who schemed to usurp his power. After the death of his young son—that drove his wife to the edge of madness—and a war more ferocious and bloody than anybody imagined, Lincoln lived just long enough to see his dreams realized before an assassin's bullet ended his life . From humble beginnings, to the most powerful position in the world, to a sudden, shocking end, Lincoln's life story is extraordinary. This is the epic, six-time Emmy®-nominated miniseries about one of the greatest leaders in the history of our nation. APPOINTMENT WITH DESTINY: SURRENDER AT APPOMATTOX From the Emmy®-nominated series Appointment with Destiny comes Surrender at Appomattox , an examination of our nation's decision for peace at the end of The Civil War. Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant were two men at war. With Lee leading the Confederacy and Grant the Union, both generals were not only in the midst of battle, but also facing inner struggles and personal conflicts. As the death toll began to the rise and morale began to fall, Lee and Grant found themselves in Appomattox, Virginia, at the simple home of the McLean family to discuss the terms of surrender. Narrated by Hal Holbrook, and shot as if captured by news reel cameras, Surrender at Appomattox explores all the details leading up to this last act of a great historic drama.|

Although we have had a couple days lately when we have been down for maintenance, looking back over the last couple years we can say that we have been available 99.5% of the time and that isn't too bad at all.
With the latest outage, we struggled to replace damaged equipment and bring the new boxes online as quickly as possible. We now think that we have everything up and running but we will keep monitoring for little things that may have gotten missed.
We feel so bad when ever the system is off line for more than a few minutes or for any unexpected events. But to put thinks into prespective, we looked back over the past 2 years and found that we have been off line completely for less than 100 hours with the longest period being this last outage when we ended up doing a full rebuild on our main server box.
With all things considered we think we are doing pretty good for a small company managing multiple web sites as well as our regular day-to-day business.
We will continue to improve and make efforts to reduce future down time. Even at 99.5% up time, there is room for improvement.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
