Technology: love it or whatever

This has been the year of technology stress.

The websites I work on for the Kitsap Peninsula Visitors & Convention Bureau had a major setback as the company working on our new site closed their doors and the company designated to take over decided to "cherry pick" the clients leaving us on our own without a completed site.

We were forced to move our old site to a new server and start where we left off a year ago, but to date the site isn't working correctly and we're unable to move forward with upgrades or even some of the basic updates.

Just one of those things, things change, people move on, business decisions are made but frustrating none the less.

I was just coming to terms with this year long ordeal when my personal laptop started having issues. Dell was very responsive; first they replaced the mother board with one day service. Next they sent a second mother board but the technician found a software solution.

Things went well for a week or so and the original problem returned. Now my computer has completely locked up and a replacement is on the way. Now I have to go through the hassle of getting a variety of companies to allow me to download a new copy of their software for my new computer and get it all set up.

What does this have to do with photos or Kitsap and Beyond? Not much, but I have been distracted and at this point I don't have my laptop, photo software or photo hard drive available so the blog has suffered.

Stay tuned.
