Hi Folks,

Well once again "life has gotten in the way" of life. There is no real Report this week because all of my time was taken up with dealing with the effects of this site and forum crashing on Tuesday afternoon. It took 2 days of futzing around to get things back and running again. Thank god I was able to find a reasonably recent backup! Couple that with my regular Windows XP machine going belly up, the guitarist in my band announcing that he was leaving town in 2 weeks, it's been raining for 3 days and my wife and son being away in Wisconsin for a week...well you get the picture. And I thought that I was going to get a little vacation. [wry grin] Oh yeah, the program that I wrote that email's out the Report was on that machine that died. I have a backup of that as well, but not as handy as I would like.
I could get all "antsy" about this kind of thing, but frankly it's simply not worth the effort. It's probably time to make a change in the band, I needed to reinstall the OS on my desktop machine and I guess that the site problems were a wakeup-call for making better and more frequent backups. No one got hurt in any of this, I was just a little inconvenienced and life will go on. Maybe it will make me appreciate the quiet times a little more. Hope you are having a great summer...

Mobile Version Of NEClimbs:
Up on one of the Mount Washington Valley's finest crags and want to know what that climb you're looking at is? Or maybe you're on your way up from Boston and want to check out the Ice Report for your upcoming weekend plans. Or more likely, you're at work just want to daydream about your next adventure. Well if you have a smart phone handy, you can get to NEClimbs from anywhere you have cell service. While it doesn't offer every single feature of the site and it's not an "app", in mobile form, it does do a whole lot and is very useful. Here is the live link to the mobile version of NEClimbs:

This is a group of people I used to go walking with. (long pause) That's me on the left. (even longer pause) On the right is the woman I married, Audrey. (very long pause, speaker looks at shoes) Which just goes to show that danger lurks where you least expect it.
