And last night around 11:00pm Slabbed went off line but no one visiting at that late hour had any idea due to the wonders of a global CDN we now use.

The best of the rest:
Mr. Marquar was on last year’s school board ballot. What’s interesting is he evidently is qualified to sit on the Hancock County Port & Harbor Commission due to his “in-depth expertise in marine construction, vertical commercial construction and land clearing”.
Speaking of the Port and Harbor Commission I’ve had a member of the public ring the bat line here at Slabbed New Media twice claiming a major scandal is unfolding at the agency. Last time the environment was this target rich here at Slabbed was back in 2010/2011.
