Currently, this blog is hosted by NameCheap, the registrar I use for my domains. It is a cheap package, so the cost is right, but page load times are way too slow for my liking. So, at around 1:00 AM EST, I plan to switch over to Flywheel, the company I used before. You should notice a big change in page load speeds. I hope that the changes will propagate quickly, but there could be some sporadic unavailability tomorrow. I apologize for this if it happens to you. Any unavailability will be temporary.
After tomorrow, if you still can not access the site please let me know. You may want to flush your browser cache before contacting me. Sometimes, an outdated browser cache can result in page errors. (as can an incorrect IP address in the DNS cache, though this rarely a problem)
I decided I need some virtual human contact so I signed up for a personal Facebook account. This will be the place I hang out with family and friends, so don’t expect deep discussions about atheism or religion. Expect light discourse, pictures of the grandkids, and exposure to the “rest” of what makes up Bruce Gerencser. If you would like to be friends, you can friend me here.
As far as Twitter is concerned, I am not a big Twitter fan but I know others are, so I will do my best to accommodate the Twitterites by posting my writing to Twitter. You can follow me here. Please don’t expect long 140 character discussions. I am not built for such discussions. I get too snarky. I am better suited for long, friendly discussions over coffee, wine, or a good meal.
Several readers have asked about reporting my previous writing. I will not be reposting my past writing, except for 20-30 old posts that I think are important and will give context to those reading my story for the first time. I want to revisit some of the things I wrote about years ago. Over the past 8 years I have changed a good bit and I think my writing should reflect this change.
There is a mailing list signup form on the right sidebar. I am using MailChimp to handle email subscriptions. If you signup for the mailing list you will receive a daily digest of every new post. The mailing list will be sent out at 6:00 P.M. Eastern every day there is a new post. You can also signup via this link. There is also a check box at the bottom of the comment form. All you need to do is check the box when you comment and you will be added to the daily digest mailing list. No matter how you sign up for the mailing list, you will receive an email verifying your email address. All you have to do is click the link in the email. If you want to unsubscribe, there will be an unsubscribe link in every email.
I am still working on the mailing list template. It looks “ok” but I want to tweak it a bit.
Mobile Device Support
I am trying a responsive theme for mobile devices rather than using WP Touch Pro. Supposedly, the theme should scale to whatever device you are using. If you are accessing this site with a smartphone, iPad, Kindle, iPod, etc, please let me know how things look. If you see any design issues or quirks, please let me know and I will do my best to fix them. You can contact me via the contact form.
I am still working on the site design. I think I have most every thing the way I want it, but I will likely fiddle with it until I break it. If you see anything that doesn’t look right, please let me know.
How to Contact Me
You can email me via the Contact Form. I will respond to you as soon as possible.
Thank you for once again reading my blog. You love and support is greatly appreciated.
