A few weeks back I remarked that there were two surprises I wanted to spring on you. Unfortunately, the recent chaos postponed the work involved, but I’ve been able to continue them now that things have settled down.
One is an upgrade of the site. The website software is seriously out of date. I’ve noticed that searches no longer return search info for new content. Also, it’s currently on an account which doesn’t handle quite so much bandwidthâ€¦nor disk space. So tonight I’ll be taking the site down while I transfer the data to the other site. I’ve got the updated software on the new server, and I’ve practiced transferring the info. Here’s hoping that it goes through in the shortest possible time and without unexpected challenges.
The other is a long-standing surprise that I’ll be able to announce after the site has extra capacity.
I had wanted to get these both out of the way so I could participate in the IronCoder contest for Mac developers, which was stretched out to a whole week! A whole week, and I still wasn’t able to participate! Oh well. I’ll still attempt to publish what would’ve been my entry in a week’s time. Of course, that means I’ll have to do my development in Leopard, using Xcode3.
Perhaps I should take a month to finish it.
