The SAVE site was updated today.

December 23, 2005

While it may be too late to get something shipped in time for the holidays, one can still avoid the last minute rush by getting gift certificates online from places like iTunes Music Store, the Apple Store, or There's no need to battle the traffic and crowds, and you can help support, too.

The Saugus site was updated today.

Two Saugus sites, and Newton's Library, were updated today.

December 14, 2005

We're continuing to add information to the new Saugus Forums help page providing yet more information on different methods of freely subscribing and/or posting to the Saugus Forums. If you think there's something we should add, please let us know.

December 13, 2005

The Saugus Post Cards Online feature has been fully restored, and a few other unrelated minor glitches corrected. If you see anything that you think is still not right, please let us know.

December 12, 2005

The weekend's work on the servers went a little more slowly than planned (even the automated back-end database reindexing didn't end up finishing until early this afternoon -- it's amazing how much Saugus stuff we've accumulated in there over the years) but everything is pretty stable now. Still, it was a major upgrade and there are bound to be a few glitches still in the system (yes, we already know about the Saugus Post Cards page and will have it back to normal soon). If you see anything that looks out of the ordinary, please let us know and we'll fix it (assuming it really is broken, of course).

December 10, 2005

We'll be running server upgrades all this weekend on all the various and ShellTown machines, so there may be periods of slow and/or erratic behavior. Everything should be back to normal by Monday.

December 9, 2005

If you're looking to do some holiday shopping but are finding that the weather's not cooperating, you can still use one of the links to our various sponsors (, the iTunes Music Store, or Simply Audiobooks) and get all your shopping done from the comfort of your home. You'll be avoiding all the crowds, saving yourself some money, and helping support the various free services that provides all at the same time.

December 6, 2005

The Saugus Business Partnership site was updated today with details of the Partnership's most recent meeting.

December 5, 2005

We have posted a few photographs from this year's Hammersmith Holiday Stroll. It was a little disappointing this year with not too many strollers; people instead tended to camp at particular events, some of which were not even part of the Stroll. It seems even Santa himself skipped the Stroll this year, going only to the prior night's tree lighting ceremony and the following day's Holiday Fair in Breakheart Reservation instead.

December 2, 2005

The Dictionary of Computer Terms was updated today.

December 1, 2005
