    FORUM UPGRADE: POSSIBLE DOWN TIME

    Hi,

    Skye has graciously offered to upgrade the forum today, which may mean a few hours of down time. But, hopefully, it will fix some of the glitches.

    In Zen, there is no where to go, no complaints, nothing to improve ... yet we upgrade to fix the glitches. That is your 'Tech-Koan' for today!

    Gassho, Jundo

    Upgrade complete; some things still need tweaking, like...

    1. Rebuild search index (search may not work properly until tomorrow)
    2. Give it a nice Treleeaf graphic style
    3. ??

    Mostly I'm just posting to see if posting works

    Well done Skye, looking very nice and fresh. As a Mac user this interface is much better as it's now full wide screen as opposed to the old one which was small and narrow and at times hard to see. Ten out of Ten and congratulations on a job well done!

    Jundő's sandpit just got that much better to navigate and read.

    OK, that's all I can do for tonight... almost 1am (whoops!)

    I'll work on changing the blue theme to green tomorrow.

    Hi Skye! Looks fab! One thing I couldn't quite find was a key to the icons. I was a little confused by the blue vs. red circles, the sometimes scrolling text vs. static, and the red star vs. no red star inside the circle. Especially confusing was the blue circle with scrolling text with red star (asterisk.)

    Thanks for the hard work! Very nice...

    In Gassho~

    Great job Skye. I can now easily magnify the type to save my tired old eyes without the screen moving off to the right,

    Gassho,

    Lynn, AFAIK red means unread posts, a star means you've posted in the thread, and scrolling means there are a lot of posts. Its kind of cluttered to my eyes... I haven't finished tweaking the "look and feel" yet.

    Glad you all like it!

    Unfortunately the webhost (globat.com) is painfully slow, so this may not fix double-post or other issues. I wrote a test script and the host is running 10-100 times slower than it should be (!) - apparently we're not the only ones to notice:

    http://www.google.com/search?q=globat%20slow

    So there may be a host switch at some point.

    Thanks, Skye. It looks better to me too. Easier on the eyes.

    FYI it looks like globat.com (the host) is having another bad day, I can't even get to their front page half the time, so if the forum is painfully slow or not responding, its a known issue. We're working on fixing this for good :twisted:

    Hi Skye,

    It is a wonderful thing you are doing! I believe there is much good Karma accumulating from your deeds!

    A host switch may be needed. We will talk about it privately over the coming days.

    Hey, in the old days, the monks would keep moving monasteries (Dogen, if I recall, came and went from three or four before settling down at Eiheiji). One of his reasons for doing so: Lack of space and access, just like us! Now, we switch servers.

    Gassho, Jundo

    PS- Another reason for his doing so: He annoyed the powers that be with his radical teachings, so he was kicked out of town into the boondocks. Rather like my relationship with 'E-Sangha" where, I am proud to say, I have been banished again ... this time for a one month 'go sit in the corner'. My offense this time seems to have been being too insistent that ordained clergy in China, Southeast Asia and Tibet should not be treated as of a different status than clergy from Japan (they believe there is some historical reason to do so, as we have discussed before on a couple of threads).

    Skye, lots of great work. and it may be taking some tweaks, but that's like my zazen...it keeps getting tweaked, or is it me that tweaks, or i am the tweak? wait there is not tweak. nevermind, just keep up the good work and it is good work even when it's frustrating. Since I'm from Texas (a little farther north than Chicano), I'll say it like this...yor website shore is purdy.

    and Jundo, you shore are a purdy rabble rouser over at e-sangha. you keep up the good work too as it's greatly appreciated.
