Hurricane Matthew left us without power for a bit, and when power was restored, the ancient laptop what was our server didn't want to come back to life.
Our old site was an embarrassing relic of out-of-date designs and worst practices. "Hideous!" in the words of some. (Us.) "A pathetic example of all that is wrong in website design!" said others. (Again, us.) "Utter crap and the epitome of vomitous hideousness!" said even more. (Yeah, you guessed it.)
And not only that. The old site was a dream; a bunch of grandiose visions of things yet to be pretending as though they existed already. There's a big difference between "faith" and "pretending what isn't is." Time to get real and scale back.
So thanks to a hurricane we are embarking on this new thing, which might look dated in a year, but at least we tried.
