Web Site Maintenance

Required maintenance to both Tim & Sue’s World and Stone Creek Photos will cause the sites to be unreachable for at least a day or two. The hosting company has changed servers which has caused a few problems with certain pages not rendering properly.

Sorry for any inconvenience to my frequent visitors. I’ll announce when the updates are completed.

UPDATE: Both sites have been repaired and should be in working order. As always, please notify me of any glitches. Thanks for your patience.

System Maintenance

Beginning at approximately 9:00 am on Tuesday, November 16, the computer system running Tim & Sue’s World and Stone Creek Photos will undergo some needed system maintenance involving equipment upgrades. The web sites will remain active but the “live” camera views will be temporarily shut down. It’s anticipated all work will be completed not later than 12:00 pm Wednesday, November 17.

Sorry for any inconvenience this temporary shutdown may cause.

Helping the World

Most of us have an abundance of unused processing power in our personal computers that can be put to great use by connecting to one or more of many worthwhile research programs that need additional computing power to help analyze and find solutions for a variety of unsolved worldly problems.

My first alliance was with SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) back in early 2003. The following year, I joined with thousands of others around the globe, the World Community Grid, one of the most important research projects you can donate your unused computer processing time to. Then in 2006, I added Climate Prediction and Rosetta, both striving to find solutions to help our world.

There are a few software programs that help you monitor these processes and all basically do the same thing but I recommend using BOINC. Information for it and the other organizations I’ve mentioned can be found by visiting the links below. Please take the time to visit these sites and learn how you can become part of a global team to help human kind. Give me a call if you want to talk about it. We could even set up a Stone Creek Community team which could compile our stats collectively.
