The Dust Has Settled . . .

Over the last week there have been times when access to the website has been limited or sporadic. Unfortunately this was a continuation of problems we’ve had at various points over the years.

This time, we had enough. Basically it was like this – we were tired of the landlord not fixing the kitchen sink, the hole in the front door and the poorly operating air-conditioning. So, we moved out. Over this past weekend, we changed host servers, finding a new place to rent that already has proven to be far nicer and friendlier to the site. The new server has a higher monthly rent and does not have a lot of bells and whistles – no pool or health club for examples. But, it has been painted and has new carpet.

Right now, we are pleased with the move. Our speed is up, way up. Behind the scenes we are dancing to faster downloads and uploads. This is showing up in navigation on the site as well. It’s too early to declare victory, but already life is better for your intrepid internet hack and our dynamic duo of Dan and Phil that know where to plug things in and how to write code. Hopefully you will notice the site loading faster and that it will always be available. Hopefully.

Now, with the change in servers came other alterations. The one most of you have noticed and asked about is your login/password being gone. That was an unfortunate part of the switch. Right now, the site is completely open and available to everyone, so a login is not needed for reading posts. It is needed for making comments and you should be able to go in and just recreate your old user/password combo.

Come Thursday, we will have more news for you involving premium subscriptions and how the content will be made available starting March 15 and running through the end of the Chiefs season. That will be tomorrow’s news. Today, we just wanted to let you know the experience is hopefully improved and we aren’t going to disappear into the ether of the Internet.

Thanks for your support.

    I am now able to post again. Bob informed me you need to re-register in order to login and comment with the site changes. If anyone else is having problems, perhaps this will help. The site is now much faster and easier to navigate.

    Absolutely Rowan. All of the registration items are kept. Only the cookies and expiring user accounts fell victim to the move.
