Radio silence
I'm bringing my server down for maintenance. You can only hack my home page so many times (three, to be exact) before I decide to do something about it. My sysadmin/friend/host Jeff Tiedrich will be updating our Linux install from an old Slackware version to a more recent Red Hat version said to have more robust security defenses.

Like any move, this involves some housekeeping and a little transitional downtime. I expect my sites (such as RFB, X-POLLEN, Enterzone, and others) to go dark tomorrow and to start reappearing on Friday as we get the tarballs reungzipped and put in place, and then figure out what has to be wired differently (for instance, mysql will live in a different place, which I'll have to tell Movable Type about).

The Internet is all about always-on, 24/7 and so on, so it's weird to say that we'll be not broadcasting for about a day, but there you have it.

UPDATE: It looks like it actually took more than a week, so far, and we're still not entirely shipshape. Still reattaching mysql hooks. Here the advantage of a desktop blogging tool is clear.

Who is RFB?
Radio Free Blogistan is (mostly) the work of Christian Crumlish, xian for short. I am a writer, publisher, artist, and geek. I was born in New York and I live in Oakland, California. My personal blog is called X-POLLEN, my old home page still lingers at Enterzone, a quarterly published from 1994 to 1998. I am also a consultant (mostly content strategy, information architecture, copywriting, and brain surgery). I am also a literary agent. No, I do not have enough pull to get your first novel published.

The purpose of this "web blog" (that's a joke, son) is to document my efforts to research and cobble together something I call my Personal Expression Platform (PEP). I would be happy to adopt someone else's solution if it met my requirements and I were capable of learning it (*cough*, *cough* Paul Ford...).

I am a media junkie and a meme watcher. Once a Dead head, always a Dead head. Some of my sites have multiple contributors.

(Nearly everything I post to a weblog anywhere shows up here at RFB since we get the street traffic over here.) Consider reading or subscribing to the feed for one of this site's subcategories to read just the topics you want.
