I just received an e-mail message from my dad. That means he finally managed to find the time to connect to the Internet. I spent about half an hour helping him over the phone learn a little more about how to send a message and to check his e-mail. So far, he’s doing pretty well. I did leave him some instructions, but I forgot to print them for him and he doesn’t have a printer. But it’s pretty cool that he now has the ability to communicate with people in other parts of the world without running up long distance costs or sending a letter.
It seems like every time I update another portion of the new site, I have to return and add something I forgot before. I was sure that the bio portion was completed, but I forgot to rewrite a couple of sections. I have a three-day weekend coming up, though, so I plan on spending a good deal of time migrating more stuff. I’m considering publishing the site without many of the things I wanted to work on so I can start troubleshooting and people can start checking out the new site. I’ll keep thinking about it. In the meantime, I’ll keep plugging away.
