Site Upgrade

I am sure many were worried when you saw the site go down for about an hour. Fret not! I simply upgraded my hosting plan. This came with a great deal of benefits!

Unfortunately, older posts have been lost. Luckily, most of the posts were boring change logs. Do not worry, there are more to come.
