Happy New Year: SaturnFans.com Back Online, Server Move Postponed

Well, we're back! After the site crashed over the weekend, I decided to use the downtime to move SaturnFans.com to its new home. I had planned to do it back in Decemeber, but between the holidays, the SF Publisher being down, and other parts of the site needing maintenance, moving the site was not a priority. The good news is that over the weekend I was able to repair the database and fix the publisher. All of the articles published between December 8th and the end of the year will be restored from a backup later this week. Unfortunately, several batches of files transfered to the new site were corrupt, so the move has been postponed.

This isn't the start of the new year that I had hoped for, but I'm happy that the site is back online — even if its still on the old server. Afterall, sometimes it's the little victories that count, right? Sorry for the extended outage. Let me know if you find anything that isn't quite working right.

Happy New Year!

GM Announces Significant Production Cuts for Q1 2009

General Motors announced today a significant reduction of planned production for the first quarter of 2009 due to the ongoing and severe drop in industry sales, which were down 36% in November overall and 41% for GM (2007 vs. 2008). The impact of these and recently announced actions to adjust production with market demand, will result in the temporary idling of approximately 30% of GM's North American assembly plant volume during the first quarter of 2009 and will remove approximately 250,000 units from production.
