Steven Rhine’s Personal Blog Info & Updates

Reminder That This is a Living Blog and Blog Posts Are Subject to Edits and Changes!

November 2023, the site experienced a crash, prompting the need for a new layout as my theme was incompatible with the current update. I’ll be ironing out the bugs as I find than and find the the time to correct them (I am not a coder so I have to learn as I go). The Site should also now be mobile/tablet friendly.

If the company gets an “F” I will list the reasons why. Undetermined means I have either not contacted or checked.
