The following list shows all changes made within the last six months. All entries are written by Scott Hardie.
June 24, 2017: I made some further speed improvements on the site. (I could go into more detail but I assume that the specifics are pretty boring to most people. :-P ) If you notice any pages hanging when you attempt to open them, please let me know.
June 18, 2017: I made some adjustments to site infrastructure that will allow all pages to load faster, particularly in the GOO/TC/TMR sections.
June 18, 2017: The sections of the site have been re-ordered based on their popularity (the average number of unique members visiting that section over the past year). TC and TMR have been promoted over RB.
June 10, 2017: A few behind-the-scenes updates today: The database software is now more secure, caching is improved (images should load faster), and each page should load faster with some unnecessary steps removed.
April 29, 2017: The "latest news" sidebar element now shows recent news for seven days instead of three.
April 23, 2017: If you have any subscriptions by instant email or text message, you should now receive the content within a few seconds, rather than at the top of the next hour. This improvement necessitated rewriting a significant amount of code around subscriptions, so if you notice anything wrong, like you're not receiving them or they have incorrect data, please let me know. Thanks! (One minor difference: Movie review images might appear as a generic icon instead of the movie poster if I haven't added the poster image to the site yet.)
April 22, 2017: Images are now stored very differently. Going forward, if you notice any missing images or other strangeness around image files on Funeratic, please let me know.
April 8, 2017: In the bullet points at the top of Create a Goo, I added another tip for faster publication: Submit lots of goos. The more that you have in the pool awaiting publication, the more likely that one of yours will be picked next.
March 20, 2017: I fixed the display of special characters within old subscription data in Manage Subscriptions.
February 12, 2017: Events on the site are now said to happen in ET (Eastern Time), instead of EST which doesn't apply during the summer.
January 22, 2017: Funeratic now loads over a secure connection (https instead of http). More information is available.
January 15, 2017: Now that I have moved from Sarasota to Bradenton, I have changed my residence wherever it's mentioned on the site.
