Catching Up

Let’s get caught up, shall we?

There have been a number of updates that should have been posted on ARCONATI.NET over the past year that have been missed or lost. There have been a number of technical issues that have caused this, but I’m confident that we have a relatively stable platform (for the price) that we shall continue to use moving forward. In summary, here’s a quick overview of the changes here since the last reunion in 2010. Fair warning: some of this is technical jargon.

I migrated to a web host at the time that Blogger stopped supporting FTP. At that time, since I was dropping a hosted service, and installing a CMS, I thought I’d like to get to know Drupal.

Boy, was I wrong. It seems powerful, but difficult to set up for my purposes. So I switched to WordPress, with which I’m more familiar. Later, I updated the theme with some ancestor photos, added a few posts to catch some recent events and had plans for more.

Then everyone’s favorite web host had a security snafu and my updates and content were lost. When I noticed, it was too late to restore my small amount of work from backup. I was also in the middle of some heavy work-related projects without any chance to redo it.

We are back in business now. I don’t have the changes redone yet, but I’ll be starting on some important additions. As I write this, the most recent post is current the one from Reunion 2010. I’ve got an archive of a post I made shortly after the reunion that I’ll import here.

More information, news and announcements should be coming real soon. Stay subscribed here for information about the Arconati Family Reunion 2012 as soon as it becomes available.

Until then,… Happy Thanksgiving!
