I just fixed the link to the QR Code Generator for our mobile application for displaying your listings on mobile devices. It was being directed to a non-existant page. Careless error by me.

Slideshow Bug Reported
A customer reported today that some slideshows were not working when accessing them through www.HAR.com. We determined the problem to be with updated Internet Explorer browsers and repaired the code causing the access problems.
Server Farm Dreamhost Crashes – Our Sites Go Down
Our server host for this website had a major outage yesterday. Several million other websites were down as well. Thankfully, this happened on a Sunday, the day of rest. I only once had a 24 hour plus outage when I hosted from my own servers and that was in the “rookie” years. Sure didn’t expect this from a company that hosts about 12 million websites.
Brochure Content Edit Bug
The content editor did not go to the update page for saving changes to brochure content. The page has been fixed. Thanks for the heads up, Sherry.
Hard Copy Invoicing Ends
As the Post Office says, email and the Internet are “killing us”. Thus, beginning 2012 you will not receive invoices from Real Connect by mail. Invoices will be sent to you in an email message. When brochures are included, we may slip the invoice into those shipments. In any case, you can always retrieve copies online by logging into this system.
Entergy Power Failure
Electicity went down around 4:00 PM. I did not fire up the generators because Entergy said they would be back online at 5:40 PM. After 6:00 PM past, I did fire up the generator and ran the system on backup power until 7:20 PM when the power was restored.
Hard Drive Expansion Maintenance
I was intending to simply add another 300 Gb to the virtual disk that stores all your photos. The addition went along as planned, but it took 13 hours to come back online as the array of hard drives had to syc with the new one. The addition should buy a couple more years.
Verizon Network Failure
Part of our site went down about 3:00 PM today. Our telephones went down as well. Verizon suffered a complete system failure. Even though we do not use Verizon as our Internet Service Provider, our cable to Consolidated runs through their territory. The information section of the website is working because it is hosted on a “cloud” server somewhere on Earth. The Interactive section does not work.
