Site Crash!

Site Crash
Howdy! (That would be Texan for “Hello”!) You may have noticed that my website has undergone a LOT of changes lately. On October 13th, 2009 I experienced a site crash of my website and lost a LOT of comments and BLOG posts that have been accumulating over the years. This site had been up and running for over 5 years and I have accumulated a ton of information over those years.

I was able to recover some of the comments and all of the tutorial information but I am afraid that some of the comments that I personally made on the BLOG will be lost forever. I also lost all of the subscribers to the site and blogs so please re-register and create a new login for the site if you are revisiting. As it has always been with my website, you will need to log into the site in order to make comments. This is necessary to keep spam at bay.

The good news is, everything that I was able to recover is back online now so all of the information, specifically the Tutorial content for the Digital Light Wands and High Speed Photography Trigger are back on the site and those of you that were digging into making your own tools have access to the information once again.

Thanks for you patience and kind words!

    Hi Michael,
    What happened to your site? I found your high speed photography trigger very interesting and was documenting on how to build it but suddenly I was not able to get any stuff which I previously saw on your site… Are you updating?
