Changed Servers (Again)
« on: November 18, 2011, 05:37:07 pm »
We just changed servers.  You... uh... may have noticed.

I apologize for the disruption.  Normally I try to make major changes late at night, to minimize the impact when problems arrive. It has, however, been so hard to get time and circumstances to work that this move didn't get done until it became a crisis.  When you test a new setup by going live with it, you tend to see bad things happen.

On the bright side, we may now be on the road to putting our performance problems behind us.

If you notice glitches, report them here.  I'd also appreciate one response to this immediately, as a test.  Thanks.

So are we not able to change themes now?

I disabled that along the way.  We had enabled it at first, then, I think, disabled it, then I don't know what became of it.

Since, it seems, at least one person wants an alternate theme, I'll re-enable it.  Consider other themes "unsupported", however; if something doesn't work, I won't fix it, and if we add something, you won't see it.

Ultimately, we may wind up with a unified look, across the sites.  At that point, we'd get rid of the option again, and you'd be forced to look at our wonderfully lucrative advertisements.  So, enjoy it while it lasts.

I like it!  It's nice to be able to go to a new screen without a 30-second wait.

The Grand Unified Theme has been a plan since the beginning.  We may achieve it in geological time, so don't worry about it too much.  If you like something else, go ahead and use it.
