Tekton Website Updates

January 17, 2017

Shortly after the last upload I became very ill, and have not quite recovered yet. It was some powerful form of cold, but not flu: My voice is weak, and I have a couple of middle ear infections (now in last stages) that are making hearing difficult. I'll update again when I can.

October 5, 2016

Hurricane Matthew is heading this way, though the current forecast calls for my area to get skimmed by the western edge of the storm's core, which means tropical storm force winds. As usual with these storms, there's a chance I'll lose power and not be able to post anything for a couple of days.

August 5, 2016

I've had a cold most of the week, so I've had to take some time off. I'll also note that yes, the website was down for a bit; it's a long story, but the sum of it is, the domain name had expired, and because my former domain register went out of business and sold the rights to someone else without providing my contact info, I wasn't informed of the expiration and had to scramble to get that problem fixed.

July 8, 2016

Today we have an update on the business of the "libel" lawsuit I posted news of here earlier. A hearing was held to determine whether the court in question had jurisdiction over me as a resident of another state, and whether my actions connected me enough to that state for jurisdiction to be warranted. (This is decided completely apart from the merits of the case; that is, whether I actually did "libel" the plaintiff or not.)

The finding was in my favor.

I'll leave it at that for the time being. Meanwhile:

A bit early this week on the upload; I got a new, more powerful computer to help me do ministry work like making videos. I'm still planning to use the old one for stuff like email and Web searching.
