    """""I've made quite a few changes to our systems over the
    last few weeks and spoken with a few providers as well to
    diagnose some of the connectivity issues we've been having.
    I also want to thank those of you who have been working with
    AT&T and AOL and getting them on the ball to correct some of
    their issues in regards to getting to our network.

    I've recovered all of the data on our server and
    reconfigured the DNS and security here but there are 2-3
    more issues that I feel need to be looked at. (Things I want
    to implement for the below redundancy and security setups ).
    Expect some on and off while I work with other ISP's and
    make some tweaks over here though when we're complete, we'll
    be looking at the following benefits:

    * OC3 Connectivity - very fast connection with multiple fall
    back routes out to the internet [ in place ]
    * Redundant power - Redundant power supplies working and our
    racks are hooked up to a generator in case of power outages
    [ in place ]
    * Disk redundancy - RAID 10 mirroring on our web, sql, and
    disk servers [ 75% complete - 2 machines left ]
    * Machine redundancy - Multiple fail over machines (if one
    machine has hardware issues, another will pick up the load
    via heartbeat) [ approx 50% done, current project ]

    I guess luckily for Kirsten I'm not working at the moment
    and am able to focus on quite a few of the issues that have
    needed my attention for quite some time.

    I expect no other outages but do plan on upgrading the board
    over the next 30 days. The biggest issue will be data
    conversion and I'll post when that's about to happen.
