Notes for Wednesday – January 27, 2016

January 27th is commemorated at International Holocaust Remembrance Day. On this day, Soviet troops liberated the remaining prisoners from Auschwitz death camp. Sadly, most of its population had been evacuated and sent on a forced death march. Only those too weak to travel had been left behind.

This is also the birthday of the late Helen Chenoweth (born, 1938, died October 2, 2006). She was a controversial Republican congresswoman from Orofino, Idaho.

We have completed the move to our new server and are now working out the small bugs. You should see several improvements including:

  • Faster, better performance.
  • The SSL implementation now gets an A+ rating instead of an F.
  • We’ve given up on the “Responsive” layout for mobile users. It seems the users want the old layout back, so the old layout is back. Sorry Google; the readership has spoken.

News From Oregon: We are waiting for more information at this time. Ammon Bundy, his brother Ryan and seven others have been arrested after an altercation at a traffic stop/road block. One person is dead and one is injured.

Not much is known, but it appears that the men were asked to a meeting by locals and then stopped en route by the Feds. The altercation ensued resulting in the death of one of the militia. We will update as we get more accurate information.
