Site News: Sorry for the downtime

On Friday morning, my server host renews my SSL Certificates for AdamChandler.me and AdamChandler.Beer. The renewal went well until none of my sites loaded.

Site News: Migrating to a faster server this week

The entire AdamChandler suite of sites is going under migration this week. If emails to me get a delayed notice or you can’t get to my site, it’s all a part of the process. I migrated a year ago and while I’m staying with the same web-host, I’m going to a much faster system. 100GB …

Every photo is public and it’s the best way to see my photos. However, I’ve been using Koken more and …

My site now secured with SSL
