|Long Description||Henri Matisse, one of the pioneering masters of twentieth-century art, was an extremely versatile and productive artist. Throughout his long career from the 1830s to his death in 1954, his art was nourished by a variety of movements: Neoclassicism, Realism, Impressionism, and Post-Impressionism. He was an outstanding draftsman and sculptor, but was most widely recognized and loved for his vibrant and colourful paintings, which are the focus of this book. In his short lifetime of only thirty-seven years from 1864 to 1901, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec created work that has become iconic of popular Parisian life during the time in which he lived - the theatre, the circus, dance halls, cafes, and brothels. His work is brimming with the emotion and atmosphere of such famous locales as the Moulin Rouge, rendered in a style influenced by the Impressionists but distinguished by his own distinct and masterly handling of line. Jan Vermeer's mysterious and poetic paintings have continued to fascinate us. The recent Hollywood film which took its title from the painting - The Girl with a Pearl Earring - attests to the lasting power that fills his simple, studied, everyday scenes. This volume reproduces every one of Vermeer's works, including the recently attributed Saint Praxedis.|

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.
