June Ormsby House Update

The year is halfway over, and the Ormsby House is halfway done! What a coincidence! What a perfect time for another update!

The June Gallery is now live. And this month brings a new virtual home for the Orsmby House. I’ve moved the gallery from the Computer Vet over to my new website, Around Carson. This new site is meant to provide coverage of all things Carson City and Carson Valley, and the Ormsby House fits in with that perfectly. So the gallery has a new URL, http://aroundcarson.com/carsoncity/ormsbyhouse/.

Of course, things never go smoothly. I figured out how to set up an Apache redirect so that all requests for the gallery at the Computer Vet would be forwarded automatically to Around Carson. And it was working fine. But then something happened; maybe I accidentally overwrote the .htaccess file or something, but the redirect went dead. And I had already removed the gallery from Computer Vet, so people who were following Computer Vet links were getting nowhere. 404. And, since Google had indexed the Computer Vet URL, I was dropped from Google. After untold days I discovered the snafu and fixed the redirect, and everything’s back to the way it was. But I’m sure there’s going to be some fallout from all of this, especially trying to get back to the top of Google.

Anyway, you can poke around the rest of Around Carson if you want, but there’s not a lot to see. The only part that’s really ready is the Around Carson Forums, where I just happen to have made a special forum for the Ormsby House. If you want to talk about your Orsmby House memories, that’s the place you should go.

Or, just enjoy the update.
