Too much Partying!
I think the boy and I have had more than enough of partying of late, we went out clubbing two weekends in a row and had a total blast both times.
But now I am definitely paying for those hours spent dancing away the night and the day as well - I have a head cold and I feel miserable! I hate getting a cold, especially a head cold because my nose runs, I sneeze and I can't concentrate on my work properly.
That and the problem that I can't go to the gym with a bad cold as it only makes it worse so I have not been in a few days (what with the weekend and also Anzac Day *Sigh*.
Here is to kicking this damn cold quickly!
The members functions of the site were not available for the last 24 hours, but have now been rectified.
Some attack was made on the site according to my webhost and all the back end scripts that make the site work correctly were offline during this period. The problem has now been fixed!
Mail Server Issues
The problems I am havig with my email server being listed as an Open Relay should be fixed over the next 24 to 48 hours (or so I have been promised by my webhost). This will mean that the problems I have ben having sending email to AOL and many other ISPs will now be fixed and my email will finally get through. Once this has been fixed I will be sending out the first newsletter to all Superdrewby members in months!
Fixed Member Profiles
I only just noticed that there has been a small problem with the members profiles that has been stopping the advanced profile from being displayed. the problem has now been fixed and if a member has an advanced profile it can now finally be seen!
I can't believe that no one emailed me to tell me that their advanced profile could not be seen, but hey I suppose with the other mountain of email I get from the site it may have falledn through the cracks.
There are still quite a few small issues to be rectified but I will get round to fixing everthing as my time permits!
AOL Mail Issues
I am still working on fixing the problem with mail not being sent correctly to AOL email addresses and this is a very high prioity for me!
I have a huge backlog of email to attend to from people so if you have sent me a message and have not received a reply yet please be patient and I will get to it as soon as I can!
For those of you who celebrate Easter, have a wonderful day, and for those that don't enjoy the days off or just enjoy the day!
Since updating the site I have seen a dramatic increase in the number of visits to the site and in addition to this the users are staying longer! Which hopefully means that the site is even better than before!
Thank you to everyone who has sent me emails of support for the new look and content of the site it is very much appreciated!
The site has been updated and is now working more or less as it should be!
I will be writing a message to all members very soon, but in the meantime I hve a few small issues still to overcome including:
- Non Members cannot view members profiles
- Non Members cannot use the online forum
- The online forum is full of dummy data
- The members database has errors in the country listings that need to be fixed
- The underwear and vote for your top ten guys are not working properly yet
- Website Reviews has not yet been uploaded
- Chris Summerfield Photography has not been updated
- The Sex Term Dictionary is empty
- My Buddies is not yet working properly
All these errors are being fixed and will be rectified as soon as I have more time, but most will take a few days to get done.
Another very large problem that I ahve come accross is all my mail to AOL accounts is being bounced because my webhost has not yet fixed their open relay issue on my mail server and I am working with them to fix this very significant issue!
Site Being Updated
There has been a short delay in updating the site due to my ADSL Internet connection being unavailable for several hours over yesterday.
Over the next two to three hours the old site will be progressively deleted and re - loaded with the new site and content. During this time some pages of the site may be unavailable.
Please accept my apologies for any problems that you may have in accessing the site in the next couple of hours, but I am sure that the small amount of inconvenience will be more than made up for by the new clearer and easier to use site!
Twenty Four Hours to New Site Launch
It has taken me months longer than I first thought, but within the next twenty four hours I will have launched the new and improved Superdrewby. The site has been totally revamped, new content, a new look abd totally new and improved functionality for all members!
Come back tommorow and see what a difference a day really makes!
