Slow weeks ahead

As most of you might have noticed, posting has been slow for the past few weeks. The reason has been a combination of many things. First the big heat wave that passed through central Mexico left us with not much energy to do anything productive and it was compounded by power failures and communication problems. We also have been working hard preparing a bunch of new features that we wanted to launch earlier this month, but due to various delays and infrastructure problems we will launch them when things quiet down a bit around here, probably in late June.

Though this site is hosted on a commercial host, we also maintain our own servers here for our other businesses, and for some clients. We spend the part of last week updating out Windows server, and now the next task is to do the same to the Linux one. I also need to add storage to our file server, so this sounds like it will keep me busy for a while judging the fun I had last week with the Windows server.

We also have been intensively looking for a new place for the school as right now it is an ordeal for us to travel to the place we give the cooking and wine courses as it is on the opposite side of town from where we live. On a good day with no traffic it takes us close to 3 hours to get there from here, so it is a tad tiring to give the courses. Also it is far north on the other side of town and most people in the more central areas of the city do not want to travel so far. We have been looking for a commercial space to rent, or ideally for a large out with enough space for us, the Boyz, and for the school and of course at a price we can afford. IT seems very difficult to find something that matches all of our criteria.

I think that this slowness of posting might last a few more weeks as I would love to find a proper place for the school and settle that once and for all, and also I need to do a lot of work both for the new things we want to launch here, and also on assorted other projects around the office. I will try to post something occasionally when I have a few free minutes, and we are taking picture and preparing new material for the site all the time. In the meantime keep cooking and enjoying good food and good wine and we will resume our regular posting schedule soon.
