When it Rains it Pours

Aug 14, 2009 - And it has been pouring over here the last four weeks.

It began with a computer crash. As they say, it's not "if" but "when" your computer will crash, taking all of your data with it. I have a nearly new main brand computer and the hard drive had a major mechanical failure. It wasn't a virus or "bug" but a complete malfunction of the hard drive.

I was able to maintain priority elements of ProBrewer such as registering new users, weeding out the hundreds of spammers we get daily and answer time sensitive questions from users. But I didn't have time to keep the News department current. I have re-started that today and we will have the usual news updates from now on. Lesson #1: Back-up your computer!

As I was progressing through the long tedious process of trying to recover data, reinstall programs and get my email back online, my Mom fell gravely ill. I spent a lot of time tending to her and by her bed side the last couple of weeks. The most inspirational person in my life, she passed away on Monday.

Lesson #2: Life is precious and fragile. Spend time with the ones you love.

And now, it's back to my other "family;" all of you out there in the family of brewers. Huge thanks to all of you who emailed me with concern after not seeing the regular News posts.

Cheers,

Admin
