Sorry for that downtime, but I’m just happy to have migrated successfully (a couple of caveats, further down).
The Phoenix Sun started life as a blog and became an online magazine. It’s fitting to come full circle as a blog on the winter solstice — the day the sun returns. I’m hoping that’s auspicious.
I’m still working the kinks out of the new site, but most of the widgets – the small programs running in the sidebar – survived the transition. One even benefited from the move. The daily photo of the sun can now be displayed in a larger frame, making solar activity that was previously blurred now snap into focus.
Please let me know if, er, when, you find bugs or features that just don’t look quite right. I’ll do my best to fix them.
As a journalist living in the American Southwest, I feel obliged, and fortunate, to cover one of the most promising energy technologies: solar power. Clean, renewable, abundant: solar is already playing an important role in the transition from a fossil fuel economy. I’ll continue to do my best to keep The Phoenix Sun the most reliable, up-to-date and entertaining source of information on solar power and related environmental news from the northern reaches of the magnificent Sonoran Desert.
