*Moved* to New Hosting Servers; Questions for Womack Podcast?

A Classic from "The Simpsons." Nobody at the Lean Blog is actually drunk.

Updated the tense of the post for Saturday morning: I've had a ton of downtime again the last few weeks, so I migrated the blog to servers at a new hosting company Friday night (with the valued assistance of Big Big Design, my site designer and technical advisor).

There was some downtime Friday night and Saturday morning as the internet “re-learns” how to find the blog on the new server. DNS propogation, blah blah, blah for those who know the technical internet stuff.

Some plug-ins and functionality are not yet restored (as of 9 am EDT Saturday). Now fully restored as of 9:30 AM.

Back with new posts on Monday for a fun week ahead.

    1) Reflections on the word “lean” and does he wish they had chosen another word?

    2) Thoughts on the combining of lean and six sigma, mainly by training companies…
