This weblog is indefinitely suspended

Many people have written asking about updates to this weblog.

Regretfully, I suspended publication last year. This suspension is indefinite.

The alternative was to charge a subscription larger than we liked -- or to run ads from suppliers. We felt that running ads would have called the site's independence into question while at the same time producing little revenue.

The only sponsor we've ever had has been my employer, Fiber Planners Inc., which is not responsible for the content (I published this weblog on my own time).

More importantly, selling ads might have called into question the independence of my employer's design and consulting work. Fiber Planners Inc. has always been strictly vendor-neutral -- sometimes even in the face of legal threats (never successful) from big suppliers unhappy with the advice we've given clients about vendor selection or system failures.

If my consulting workload frees up more time, I will resume publication. In the meantime, I have to give higher priority to clients, colleagues and family.

Many thanks to everyone for their support and interest.
