the Ridgewood Blog Suffers a Rash of Technical Issues

Dear Reader

After 12 years we had to clean up our data base which took about 36 hours ,it is like cleaning an attic after spending a life time in a house . Apparently we had bats in the belfry and as you may have noticed we have had a rash of technical issues in recent days .

The next step in our upgrade is going to be migrating to a faster and more robust data base and the third and final step will be to clean up a few software problems and cliches.

In the mean time , try our new url : www.ridgewoodblog.net as well as the older , www.theridgewoodblog.net if you are having any trouble getting connected .
