Waiting for the third
There was a wee explosion and fire in the basement of this here site yesterday.
Unfortunately, no one was injured so the event lacked the drama so required for a news item these days.
Anyhows, the bit that blew up has been consigned to the dump and another piece from another manufacturer put in its place.
The piece that blew up and the piece that replaces it are supposed to make the site go faster for you lot. So do you notice it being any faster? Or slower? Or you really couldn’t give a shite because there is more to life than worrying whether pages load fast or not?
Just after I put the fire out, and did some emergency repairs yesterday the servers had a hissy fit too. It was nothing to do with my little emergency – just one of those coincidences.
They say that troubles come in threes.
I’m sitting here in my Kevlar vest and steel helmet waiting for the third.
Any moment now………?
About the same here, maybe you need an NCT for the website?
…………………… ps ………. posting speed is much quicker!
Heh! That is the one thing that should be unaffected.
Readers are far more critical than any NCT test!
Thanks for that, Slab. I really needed that………..
Tis like a rocket GD…
A Scud Missile?
No, one of those 1/6d jobbies they used to sell (to anyone, even us kids who would save up for a few of those and a pocketful of penny and twopenny bangers for the local terrorist arsenal) in the weeks leading up to November 5th
Ah! The Aul Wans down on Moore Street? "Penny each the bangers, luv!"
"Kevlar." Sounds Irish.
Went to se Flogging Molly and Skinny Lister last night. I hate being the oldest guy in the club.
Don't worry. Everything makes me feel old these days.
Never mind 'the troubles' with this site there is far more important news to read…
An interesting, if very depressing bit of reading.
In other news
HAH! Brilliant! Makes up for your previous snippet.
working grand now! just zippy in the load and no more triple images. fingers crossed third thing is just a fart from the guiness
Thanks for being so quick off the mark. The reason for the triple images [I think] is that it was serving up a version of the site meant for mobile phones. Or something. Or maybe I'm wrong….
can't express how zippy it is now what ever was fixed is a great load now
I can see a huge difference in speed on my phone here. Loads up a lot quicker.
Good news! One of the reasons I didn't use this software before is that it isn't supposed to work with mobile phones. I tried a few tests yesterday with my own phone and it seemed to work so I went with it.
