Thank you for looking in and reading this last blog post. Don’t worry, I’m not going away! As many of you know, and have kindly let me know, my website has been experiencing a lot of problems lately. It is an old web site now, and has some security issues. In the past year it has been hacked a couple of times and went offline. The blog page has also been hacked numerous times with links for Chinese made “Rolex” watches appearing throughout my articles. I would delete the links, and they would come back a few days later. So avoid this repeated cat and mouse routine, the old articles have now been deleted.
The good news is that a brand new Larrysson Pipes web site is being built with a new look and modern security so hacking will be a thing of the past. I’m very excited about it. It will be a full e-commerce site where you can make purchases immediately when you see something you like. You will be able to sign up for a newsletter to receive updates when new pipes are available. There will also be links to facebook and instagram. The new website is scheduled to go live towards the end of the summer.
You will have noticed no fresh pipes on the pipes page lately. This isn’t for lack of trying, but I’ve been very busy with commissions. I’m currently averaging about a pipe a week, or approximately 50 pipes per year. That is all I can manage on top of a full time job and everything else screaming for my attention. It is easy to have my calendar filled up with such a low number of pipes, and as of now my year is completely booked solid. Unfortunately I cannot accept any new commissions for 2017. I will definitely have a few new pipes when the new website goes live later this summer. See you then!
