Today is moving day. We may be off line at times for the next few days.

Home Technology Montreal (HTM) is moving to a new hosting company. This move will enable me to add more features that will make the site more fun and interactive.

The move will take place Thursday June 9 and Friday June 10 so I will be unable to add new content until the move is complete. Once that is done the hometechmtl.com domain will have to be redirected which could result in it being unavailable for a time . If that happens you will be able to reach the Home Technology Montreal site at this temporary URL: http://184.172.176.53/~bob1939/

Our permanent address will be http://hometechmtl.com but because of the way HTM is currently set up your bookmark may be https://bobbenedetti.wordpress.com. If that is the case, please change it to the permanent URL or just go to hometechmtl.com and re-create the bookmark.

Thank you for visiting HTM and I hope you continue to visit as we settle down in our new permanent digs.
