Inaugural Ceremonies (and the website)

These topics aren’t related other than they happened at the same time. (A coincidence, I’m sure). As many of you know, the masslandrecords.com site has been operating erratically for the past 48 hours. We believe the problems have been corrected, but please let us know if they persist. The server that holds the registry data is located in Boston, and it seems to have worked fine throughout this episode. The problem was with the communications link to that server. Yesterday, some people had access without difficulty, but others were not even able to reach the site. The technicians sent out an email at 3 a.m. today reporting that the problem was corrected, but later this morning we continued to receive customer reports of problems. It appears that the people who had access yesterday, lost it today, while those who were excluded yesterday, had no trouble today. Hopefully the news that it is corrected for everyone is accurate. As for the second topic, “inaugural ceremonies,” late Wednesday afternoon, I joined the other dozen Registers of Deeds whose offices are within the Secretary of Commonwealth’s office for a joint oath of office ceremony at the Great Hall of the State House. Secretary Galvin administered the oath and sponsored a brief reception. That event concluded just before 5 p.m., so we were able to walk a few steps to the grand staircase and watch Governor Romney descend the stairs as part of his “solitary walk” out of the building. Yesterday, all of the Registers of Deeds attended another ceremony at the Land Court where Chief Justice Scheier administered the oath as Assistant Recorders of the Land Court. So now all the Registers of Deeds, both those re-elected and the six who were newly elected, have officially commenced this new term of office.
