Site News #5: About That Outage – and More!

Let’s first address the elephant in the room:
No outage occurred over the week that I had promised.
Why?I had some hardware configuration headaches with the new server that I needed to get sorted first. The good news is that it’s now up and running as a secondary server, and I’m in the process of slowly moving things over. Luckily, according to the WordPress docs, the process for migrating a WP site from one server to another is as simple as copy/paste. I doubt it will truly be that simple in practice, but hey, I’ll try whatever.
Perhaps this weekend I’ll find time to finally migrate everything once and for all.

In other news, you can see we have a new layout as is usual at the beginning of every year. In my opinion, this is an excellent upgrade over last year’s “what the f*** is going on!?” theme where words, pictures, and colors just kinda sprayed everywhere. Now it’s all clean, simple, and much better laid out. Currently when you hit the page, all you see at first is the Electric plane, but that will “Soon™” be replaced with a surprise.

In my previous site news update, I said that Cheese-Water was going to post one of his regular opinion pieces over the winter break, but it looks like that isn’t going to happen. Instead, he’s making full use of his time programming games, so at least there’s that. In lieu of one of his opinions, I’ll be writing a brief one that will be only 1/4 as well researched as his, and it’s mostly just a rant. So look forward to that!

That’s all for now. I’ll definitely update when servers are fully migrated.
