Historic first post back 

This is historic on so many levels. After being offline for 30-something hours, the first e-mail we got is from Ken in Ocean Springs: I'm not sure if this is the avenue for this but, I need you to hold delivery of my paper until further notice. I am at (house number deleted to protect privacy) Woody Circle in Ocean Springs. Thank you, Ken I know this is completely inappropriate, but as someone who's also lost a home, I found one of my first laughs in a couple days because of this post. I hadn't thought to have my delivery service suspended; it just never occured to me. Don't worry, Ken. We won't be delivering until we can get around a litle easier. I'll pass along your info to our circulation department just to make sure. Thanks for subscribing, and we'll be ready to give you your papers on your front yard when you are.

Not much to say besides the fact that coming to Register Better would be a good decision in regards to test blog !
