Changes on my Personal Website

Bill Grumbine (Kutztown PA)
>Greetings all

Okay, now I may have your attention. The bad news is, it is going away, but the good news is, it is going somewhere else. I have been with my current ISP since 1997, eons in internet time where people change ISPs like they change their clothes. (editorial note: we do not need to press this analogy any further!) We have been very happy with their service, however there is one problem. Because of our location and the recalcitrance of the phone company, the chances of getting DSL to our area are about the same as Paris Hilton developing a sense of modesty and good taste. As my business continues to expand on the internet, I find that more and more I could really use high speed access. So, we are moving to the cable company, which does offer high speed access available in our area.

The good news is, all the woodworking content that has been available on my personal site will still be available on my commercial site. The rest of it will be available once I get my new personal space (I have to keep that picture you know!) up and running. Once that happens I will post a link for anyone interested, as well as put it on the commercial site.

Over the years I have gotten many thousands of visitors, and probably thousands of emails regarding this site. Most of them have been good. I can literally count the bad ones on one hand and still have a few fingers left. I appreciate the many kind things that many of you have said to and about me regarding my site, and I am posting this here so that those of you who are interested will have the chance to make the switch without wondering if I died or something.

I don't know how soon the switch will come, but it is in the works. It won't be in the next few days. In the next few months is more likely. My webmistress SWMBO has lots of other stuff to do right now, and I have a movie to make! Plus, I have personal appearances from WI to VA to do over the next couple of months, so I am gonna be a ramblin' man. And I have rambled enough here.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.
