Good news - the power is back up at the Sorrento Centre. But we are delaying on-line registration for 2020 programming, including SOYA, until Wednesday at 9 am. Three power outages in the past week knocked out our IT system at the Sorrento Centre. Last fall, we started a major upgrade of our entire IT system, hardware and software. The year 2019 was a very busy year as we worked on almost every front - in our buildings, on our roofs, in the gardens, on the farm - on major upgrades. The IT work has been steadily progressing and, during the Christmas holidays, our new server arrived and our diligent IT guru, Brad, was on site to install. We've also replaced a number of desktops and laptops. The recent power outages have identified another hidden problem in our IT system - some of our internet switches failed when the power came back on. So, even bad things (like power outages) can have positive results (like helping us to identify weak spots in our IT system). Over the next year, we are going to continue with big upgrades and changes - including moving most of our work to the cloud, which means that intermittent power failures won't slow us down.
