A Valentine’s Present for You
by Ron Carnell

No, it’s not chocolate or flowers. And don’t even THINK about expensive jewelry. But it is, I believe, something most of you will appreciate.

As most already know, the main Passions in Poetry site has been very quiet for a long time now. We turned off submissions and haven’t had a major update in ages. The largest single reason for that was disk space – we plumb ran out of room. Our dedicated server, Ceres, is close to three years old and – sadly – is running out of steam.

Enter Aphrodite.

This announcement is honestly a little premature, because our new server has been ordered but isn’t yet on-line. That will take another four or five days. And when Aphrodite is finally ready, it will take me about a week to get her configured. So, let’s consider this a belated Valentine’s present that will actually surface sometime before the end February. Exactly when will depend on how much sleep I can skip this month.

Aphrodite will be 2.5 times faster than Ceres, have three times as much memory, and instead of a measly 2 gigabytes of available disk space, she’ll come with a whopping 18+ gigabytes. Lots of room for lots of new poetry! I intend to immediately take advantage of that space, too, by adding several thousand poems from my backlog before she even comes on line. If that doesn’t keep you busy for a few days, Submissions for new poetry will ALSO be enabled again.

Did I mention that ALL of our software has been rewritten? Did I mention the ton of new features we’ll have? I didn’t? Oh. Well, maybe Poet deVine will give me a little room next month to talk about all of that …
