A few minor things to speak to today for you:

1 -  Winter arrives New York time today at 4:48PM or 21:48 UTC (called Zulu or GMZ time)  IT is also the shortest day of the year 2022.

Here in York, the astronomical data reads as follows for 21 Dec 2022

Actual Time
7:26 AM
4:46 PM

Civil Twilight
6:55 AM
5:16 PM

Nautical Twilight
6:21 AM
5:50 PM

Astronomical Twilight
5:48 AM
6:23 PM

Length of Visible Light
10 h 20 m
Length of Day
9 h 19 m
Tomorrow will be 0 minutes 0 seconds longer
In the summer time our length of day is in excess of 11 hours 10 minutes, now today it is 9 h 19 mins.  In Great Britain I seem to recall you had about 8 hours but that's memory.

2 - DISCUSSION FORUM is being moved to a new home.

Dominick has secured us a new service provider and is in the process of moving the site to a server there where we have access to repair and power to keep us going.  Right now we use a server on the east coast and the new server is in Virginia which I asked to keep it in the eastern states since we are expecting troubles maybe in the western states.

It is our intention to let the one you are using now remain in place until we switch to the new  server.  We are also upgrading the version of software we are using and knock on wood you will not see version 2.1.13 (now using 2.0.9) look or act much different from what we have now.  I also mention we are also moving which needs repaired too. 
All of this change hopefully is finished before the year ends and we expect no disruption of service to you.

That leaves to finish this post to wish all of you our friends and family for God a very Merry Christmas and a delightfully difficult New Year for 2023. 

Thanks everybody.

This is just an update that the migration ran into an error because the custom code on this site layered over the Simple Machines code has resulted in the overall website code unsuccessfully migrating to the new server.  We are currently looking at what can be done to either fix this to migrate successfully, or work around it another way.
