And I'm Back

Sorry the site has been offline for most of the last week.  I'm honestly surprised at how many contacted me to ask if Avian Waves was no more.  I know it's been a while since the last RD Tabs release, but it's still on my radar.  :-)  And now the website is back.  So what happened?  Well, I was late to pay my hosting provider (whoops).  Email from them went deep into a sorted folder in my email and, well, let's just say I didn't notice the bill emails until somebody emailed me that my site was down!  I was looking at moving to a new host anyway because my old server was getting long in the tooth.  I could have resolved this quicker, but the bill was for a whole year, so I ended up going to a new host and I'm getting twice the RAM for a little bit less than I was paying before.  Awesome!

For some reason, some of the CSS and images in the website theme aren't working unless you log in first.  I don't know why yet, but this is why you test your backups before you experience an outage.  I should practice what I preach on my personal projects that I do in my day job.
