Long DescriptionIn November 1993 Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis took a tumble from her horse during a hunt in Virginia. A scarce six months later, on May 19, 1994, this fascinating woman of substance, style, and steely will passed away in her Park Avenue home. Farewell, Jackie by bestselling author Edward Klein, who knew Jackie for more than a dozen years, is the moving account of those last months and a celebration of the life of an American icon who faced death as she faced life—with all the bravery and grace of a woman who had long inspired the nation. Chronicling the circumstances of Jackie’s diagnosis of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, the astonishing pace of the cancer’s progress, the treatments she endured, and the ones she refused, Klein recounts her heart-wrenching story, celebrating Jackie’s life. Farewell, Jackie is a regal tribute and an inspiring account of the last days of a woman whose legacy endures in post- Camelot America.

Well heck! We had another upgrade of hardware today and the process simply took far longer than expected. Sorry!

Yes, we added some more new hardware. To insure that nothing got lost we had to perform a full database backup.

This backup required copying over 70gig of data from one machine to another and this required a complete database shutdown.

Now this step took longer than expected but that wasn't all, installing the new hardware took longer than expected.

The good news? We now have new servers for both the web server and the database server PLUS backup equipment for both servers. The old equipment has been recycled into massive file servers and backup servers so we haven't wasted anything.

The hope is that all these upgrades over the past couple weeks will improve over all system performance and reliability. With all the traffic we have been seeing lately, the old database server and web server have been getting pushed to their limits. We now have some breathing room again.

Thanks for your patients.
