Updates!
« on: January 30, 2015, 11:55:59 PM »
Look, look at me! I'm still alive!

As many of you may have noticed (or not) I've been a little..absent lately. Real life has this knack of creeping up and dragging you off kicking and screaming until you participate in it.

Nearly 18 months ago I started a new job which has me working a healthy 45 hours a week (mostly) and keeps the bills paid, but like all jobs, it's tiring and my weekends tend to be mostly family time.

I do apologize though for disappearing and not being as active on here.

Last night I ran a server update to increase performance and missed a part of the update which meant that for some, features such as posting, editing profiles, marking topics as read, etc did not work correctly. I fixed the remaining issues whilst at work today.

I've just completed the portal to try and decrease the time it takes to load. One other benefit of this is the shoutbox now works correctly and doesn't need to be refreshed to show updates! I will be putting the old look back on it soon, just waiting to grab the old design - I may have forgotten we'd changed it.

I'm hoping in the coming months to get some more things done around here and work directly with WingedZephyr to improve the forums and bring them back to how they once used to be. Since my absense it seems that things have become a little chaotic. It will be dealt with.

Wellll, technically I just said I was alive, not that I wasn't dead. Perhaps I'm actually a zombie? Or something equally terrifying and evil and Tweak-like!

Is it odd I am not experiencing the SSL? I don't see it 'activated', as it were. Whether I'm logged in or not, my browser isn't showing there is an SSL connection.

Make sure you navigate to https specifically, right now it doesn't force the use, this will be coming in a few weeks once I know there are no teething problems.
