My Own Single Point of Failure

I’ve been a bit difficult to reach recently. Part of that has been general busyness, including attending the FSG Printing Summit in Lexington, KY, but that wasn’t helped by my former employer switching offices. They had generously allowed me to continue hosting there after leaving, but I had been lax in searching for alternative arrangements.

This was made worse because I had centralized too much of my online presence there, with no backups, so when they took everything down to move to the new office, I effectively disappeared from the Internet for a time. So if I’ve seemed a bit uncommunicative lately, that’s probably why.

Ian has been filling my head with tantalizing visions of replacing my hosted boxes with online apps. I think I’m going to give some of these a spin, but I’m not convinced yet. It seems to me that the lesson to learn–don’t put all your eggs in one basket–argues equally well either way.
