A ribbon cutting ceremony on October 25 celebrated a 10-month collaboration of professional builders, engineers, an occupational therapist, and high school students from across the state.
Howard Fortunato, executive vice president of HBA/DE, and the Associates Council coordinated with school administrators, teachers, and students at Hodgson Vocational Technical High School in Newark on a project to benefit an elderly homeowner who needed a ramp for her home.
The Ramp Design and Construction Program was conceived by the HBA/DE Associates Council last January as a way to work with high school students studying design, drafting, and carpentry to assist an older adult.
The ramp was built inside the home’s garage. All of the work completed by volunteers and sponsors.
A special thanks to the Associates Council members, especially John Johnson, Debra Young and Jim McCulley, and to Brian Rickards of Benchmark Builders who was the construction manager of the build.
Our cloud-based email exchange service had problems Tuesday, September 3, 2013, this from our provider: “Our attempts at intervention were unsuccessful, and corruption in our core routing table propagated to the edge routers in all our US datacenters. This created significant packet loss between the edge and core in each datacenter and prevented delivery of service to our customers.”
Bottom line, HBADE was unable to receive or send email Tuesday 9/3/13 for about 5-6 hours. As our fax subsystem is web based and tied to email, it was also shut down during the same time period.
The service appeared to be restored around 2:30pm Tuesday as a backlog of inbound emails appeared in our inboxes. However this morning we discovered email intended for us that did not reach us.
We greatly apologize to our members, business acquaintances and friends. We are reporting our problem to our provider, but if you sent an email or fax Tuesday 9/3/13 to Howard Fortunato, Hollie Gordon, Amanda Kaye, HBADE Info, and have not received an expected reply, please resend the original email or fax and let us know.
Our exchange server and email and fax service is back online at about 2:30pm today! As you may have been aware, since 9am this morning we were experiencing outages of our email exchange server and we are unable to connect to our mailboxes and our fax service.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
