About nine months ago, I posted a poll, asking if there was anyone willing to contribute money to fund an overhaul of this website. Since 2006, I have personally covered all expenses (domain purchase and renewal, hosting fees, writing weekly articles for the site), but I didn't have the funds to cover the purchase of tools required to upgrade the website's underlying infrastructure. This past May, I actually had to downgrade our website's security because the latest version of the infrastructure was too modern to work with some of the legacy content.
Here in Windsor, there is a non-Jewish friend of our shul who has contributed in so many ways to make things easier for me. We've known each other for over 30 years. His name is Michael. I'm withholding his last name because he is too modest to take credit for his works of charity. Over the past month, Michael has contributed funds to begin the modernization of our website. This modernization will be done in two stages:
Bringing the legacy content up to a level where it is compatible with the most modern infrastructure
Taking the next step to transform the website into a more modern platform, capable of working with today's mobile devices
With Michael's help, the first stage has been completed. Frequent visitors to this site will notice that it runs significantly faster (thanks to a move to a new hosting platform and a more responsive server). Step two will take time to properly plan and execute. Hopefully, other members of the local community will step up to
. For now, however, I want to personally offer a hearty Yasher Koach to my friend and friend of the shul, Michael.
