The Nocturnes - OFF LIMITS - for a bit

Well now, we've really done it! The previously-mentioned and many-times-delayed migration to the new server takes place over the next 72 hours. During this period (Labor Day, indeed!) you might SEE a cached view of The Nocturnes Web site, or you might get NOTHING for your efforts. Emails to the site are also disabled temporarily (ah-h-h, peace and quiet!). This blog however, will be fully functioning and if you need to get/keep in touch, that is an option. Immediately after this period, service WILL continue to be interrupted – hopefully, just for a few more days, but expect delays in getting ALL the pages/depts back up and running.

Why migrate, you may ask? A few simple reasons: cost for additional bandwidth, efficiency, and brute storage. This is an important move, as it will enable us to expand the current Gallery space to include some new international artists who’ve expressed interest in participating in our little show’n’tell. BTW, if you would like to deepen your participation in The Nocturnes – that would be one path – to join the growing list of gallery artists. The annual fee is yet to be determined, but it should be modest, and helps us cover the increased bandwidth and the need for the move to the new server.

An American Prayer

Got an email today from Stu Jenks - with a link to this great new video by Dave Stewart. Even if you're not a fan of Obama (or Stewart for that matter), Stu guesses "you will be greatly moved by end of the song."

We couldn't agree more - nice to see Joannie B. in there, too!

Need a few more Nocturnists . . .

Looking for a few more people to round out the 3-night Workshop I'm doing for RayKo Photo Center in San Francisco. Starts THIS THURSDAY, August 7 and continues on the 14th and 21st. You can call RayKo at 415.495.3773 for more information, and to register. SOMA locations include Yerba Buena Gardens (if we can get the permitting done in time!) and along the Embarcadero.
