Test Post

Hi all. Lauren here trying to administer the website. We are trying to move the site to a dedicated server, especially now that our host (with whom we’ve been customers for, oh five years?) decides to shut us down. But the good news: We’re now running the latest version of WordPress.

Please be patient while I run a few tests on the blog to see if we’re really in business.

UPDATE: It seems quicker. Is it quicker?

    Looks ok so far.

    W00t! You’re back up and running. Why did they shut you down? Bastards…

    Honestly? We were running WP1.5 and it was dragging everything down.

    But from a customer service standpoint, it would be great if they would send some sort of notification ahead of time so we can fix the issues before the site is down for 12+ hours. They don’t do that.

    Yes, it is quicker! The site had been taking 45+ seconds to load for me for a couple of weeks, but now my load time is down to about 5 seconds. Yay, Lauren! Yay, new WordPress!

    *whew* I panicked when you were down. LOL

    Wow, it IS quicker.

    Lauren is my hero. Forever and ever and ever.

    The protoubergeek togster was always querying me last week as to why you hadn’t upgraded your WP installation, and I didn’t have an answer. He will be glad to hear the news.

    It’s been a bit weird for me on Firefox – just shows up as black text on a white background. Works on Explorer ok, but I’d swallow a shopping trolley before I would use it voluntarily.

    Advice: next time you disable the site by renaming your index file, put out a temporary index.html that has something in it. Because otherwise what comes up is a directory listing of all your files which is 1) generally undesireable 2) leaves it unclear if things are down for upgrades, hacked into, or otherwise actually fubar’d and 3) is potentially a security risk…

    Anyway, you should be quite a bit happier with the latest version of WP. 1.5 is creakingly ancient and bug-laden. I don’t know if this is faster or not (I usually just read the rss feeds) but it’s a helluva lot more secure.

    The Amazing Kim – it works fine for me in Firefox. Just a data point. Perhaps your version of Firefox is buggy somehow?

    Great. I was wondering what happened. I even posted about it in my own blog because Pandagon had an outage at the same time and I got worried they were related.
