he's practically running the place by himself
i only joined this year, i didn't know it was a long-running thing
are half of the users online right now
was because i employed mike and colin to focus on content and couldn't afford tech stuff to be done, nor find anyone capable of doing jobs on spec.
the reply box always used to do that for most users. we also don't seem to be able to replicate errors and if it was that bad you can always PM me or Tom__ or praps even Theo, as i don't manage to read every single thread on the site.
over the past few months we've upgraded the site behind the scenes from a muddle which has built up over 8 years (essentially tacking on new features without any of them logically fitting together but bashed in so that they work). the site was built in a whole different language, with no way of being able to understand the demands of the internet that we have today. just keeping the site online is a fairly big mission and with the fairly consistent volume of traffic we've been essentially parrying from one problem to the next, rather than being able to build the new solution but Tom is getting there.
this new server should be a lot LOT faster and much more reliable (as well as £200 less per month!)
put it this way, if you think you can do a better job then please send in your CV and if you think unconstructive whinging helps then i'm completely confused.
and no, just to double-underline, the new domain name will not be staying, it's just something we registered so that we can do Tinyurl's at some point in the future.
i like tinyurls
Am I back in middle school?
Which is why you don't.
I love the site, there's very little about the way it functions that I'm unhappy with. But I do take exception to this childish response to your critcism. I couldn't, for example, lead a country into battle, but if I was a part of that army I'd feel entitled to voice my opinion on it.
I'm beginning to wonder if my sarcasm detector needs retuning.
Wt ws I thnkn?
i'm writing and in meetings from now 'til then. and have the small matter of my 27th on the 10th of Jan to get outta the way before DiS is back firing on all cylinders.

it's zooming for me.
