Temporary Possible Loss of Entries

OT: Sandbox YAK

The ArtMetal server has been moved to a VPS account. Due to the move from one server to the other, we may see loss of entries, whether blog posts or comments, not appearing on the new site. This should only occur over the next 2-3 days. So if your posts are really important, please wait to next week to make them. I will add to this thread once the transfer is complete. Although, this thread may not appear on the new server so it may actually disappear.

Is ArtMetal going down?

OT: Sandbox YAK

Is ArtMetal going down? I sure hope not! But we are having some problems. Seems that our current isp is threatening to disconnect ArtMetal for too much usage of the CPU. I received a disconnect email a couple of hours ago stating ArtMetal had been disconnected. Some of you may have experienced this. Luckily, I kept my calm and asked nicely why such an abrupt disconnect when I was trying to correct the problem. Maybe they decided to temporarily turn us on again.

OK, so not really, I always wanted to say that!
I finally got my landfill art project completed. It's a hubcap and the "chips" are made from hand cut pieces of brass. Each piece was created by pounding them onto a cheese grater for texture.

OT: What's QuiQue Up To?

OT: Sandbox YAK

I know I haven't been around ArtMetal for awhile and felt a need to communicate with the community on what I've been up to. Especially since I just finished witnessing a friend passing from this reality and watching how the local community responded to his passing.

Rich Update????

Just wondering if you had any damage Rich or if anybody had any news about Omar, the Virgin Islands, or Rich?
