Out of touch lately

Sorry for the lack of posting lately … below is what my daughter woke up to Monday morning … [story here]



Thankfully no one was hurt, but she lost the majority of her belongings … although insured it sure causes havoc in your life when you have no place to live and no clothes to wear.


I’m working on a new update to the HOSTS file and hopefully it will be ready shortly, but my main concern right now is taking care of family …

  1. Sorry to hear this!
    Good no one was hurt.
    Take care!

  2. When I was about 11 years old, I was bereaved of all my favorite video games (and everything else, but they were the most important) in a similar manner. That said, I wish I had something amazingly insightful and comforting to offer, but I don’t; I hope everything goes as smoothly and happily for your family as it possibly can.

  3. Thanks for the update. Thought you may be on vacation. 🙂 Sorry to hear otherwise. 🙁 Glad no one was hurt. Property can be replaced, people cannot.

    Anyway, thank you for what you do here. I’m sure I speak for many when I say your efforts are extrememly valuable to the computing community! Best wishes!

  4. I can suggest something – start making an inventory now, and keep updating it as you remember stuff. I burned my bedroom as a teenager (a magnifying glass on a stand caught the sun), and even though most stuff was merely smoke-damaged, I didn’t really have a good idea of what stuff I had lost. I would keep remembering things.

  5. Your heart must have been in your throat when you heard about it. Thank goodness no one was injured.

  6. Lives are more important than belongings, for sure.
    Thats a real eye opener, never expected to see that photo scenerio here.
    I hope your family can put it behind soon and find comfort for a new beginning.
    I had just sent an email to you for the mail list updates and saw this afterwards.
