Lafes.net has undergone YASM (Yet Another Server Move). We’re on a new box now, that will hopefully serve us well. The move is still under-way, and the DNS changes are (should be) propogating, so things might look funny for a … Continue reading

A lull.

I haven’t posted here for a while. This is probably due to sheer laziness on my part, with a bit of personal funk thrown in. We all have our off times, and I’ve been going through one lately. To make … Continue reading

Back on top at Google?

Well, it looks like I floated back to the top of Google for a search on “lafe”. Actually, my running blog is the top hit. This is a great change from being on page seven! How weird…

Catching up.

Just catching up on goings on, since it’s been a while since I posted. Camp Jeep turned out to be a lot of fun. I got to drive their Jeeps off-road. What’s not to like? The new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon … Continue reading
