So, it's Saturday night. And I'm coding. And I don't mind. I think I need to see a shrink (but if this is a Catch 22, I guess I don't! :S).
Well, we've transitioned to the new server and things seems to be running smoothly overall. For those of you who still have problems accessing the site (i.e. you get the message "page not found") it could be an issue with your ISP still using the wrong IP address from our old DNS (yeah, the Domain Name Server got updated but normally after 24hrs the proxy's should have automatically updated this data). You could try:
Go to the "START" menu and click on the "RUN" button, then type:
Now restart your computer and internet connection.
In terms of server performance stats, things look a lot healthier now though hopefully, and more importantly, you will have noticed a significant improvement in performance.
Because of this, we can finally (!) roll out the buddies widget. It's not quite web2.0 but I think it acts reasonably like it. We hope you like it.
In addition, following on from a suggestion from BeakerSt and taking inspiration from our veteran shutterchance member Subys, we've also included a widget entitled "LIKEY". Basically, this will allow you to tag in shutterchance pics you particularly liked. The concept's not fully developed but as opposed to the buddies thing, we thought might as well put it out there and see the response.
Right, I'm off to see Troy (I know, I know - it's just I never got round to it until tonight. btw, 300 looks pretty coool). Feel free to comment/feedback your thoughts on these new widgets either here or on the discussion forums.
P.S. We know the left hand side is getting a bit crowded and Jide is close to finishing an even more minimalist template.
Addendum: I'm such an attention craver, I've extended this post to Sunday :P
