Well, a big “Hey, Howdy!” to everyone late on a Monday night. Good news, Gwildor, Wublub and I are now live on ExternalGateway.com … well, I know Gwildor and I have moved our sites over … with a few wrinkles here and there, but “Live and Learn” I always say. Always? Well, maybe not always. But I think I’ve said it, like, once, at least.

For me, only the Home page and the part of the Admin page that let’s me blog are fully functional. If you noticed over the weekend, I had a ‘Maintenance’ message up. I’ve decided that when I load this beast up, it will be doing exactly what I want, and only what I want. I’ve taken down the ‘local weather’. I’ll try to put it back up, but I found that it was noticeably slowing down the loading of the page. Hopefully, you will have noticed, too … No? Surprising.

We have our work cut out for us, getting ExternalGateway.com up and running properly. We have to set up a PayPal Merchant account to accept payment, we have to make sure that signing up and getting accounts set-up is simple and straightforward, we have to have plans in place for what we do, what we don’t do, what we know, what we don’t know … Good Times!
