Construction Complete?

Ordinary Times will be undergoing some construction some time between Friday the 9th and Monday the 11th. We’ve been assured that all issues will be resolved by then. In fact, maintenance time should be relatively limited we just don’t know when it will occur. We also don’t know how any problems may manifest, or if they will at all. But if you see strange behavior, we apologize for the inconvenience. If there is any inconvenience. And if there is not, apologize for suggesting that there might be inconvenience that never came.

Thank you for your understand and/or confusion.

UPDATE: Welcome to the new Ordinary Times! It’s exactly the same as the old, as far as you’re concerned, except that for us it’s on a new server that will open up more opportunities for us.

  1. This comment is mostly to make sure those who only follow discussions w/ comments see Will’s note… but also while I’m here, to thank Will for this work he’s doing for the site (and all the other work he does for the site).

    Cheers, mate.


  2. What new stuff/features are we getting? Link to patch notes?

    I’m guessing nerf to Jaybird incoming.

    [p.s. thanks for the extra work]


  3. Welcome to the other side of the server migration! If you left a comment on Friday evening and it disappeared, it’s not coming back so you should write it again. It was not intentional – I tried every way I could think of to get people to stop commenting. There were only a half-dozen or so. My apologies for the inconvenience.


    • “I tried every way I could think of to get people to stop commenting”

      Put up 70,000 words on Hegel. That kills the action on any site I’ve seen. Then again, knowing the OT crowd, you could have simply retitled all the articles “Oh, Those Kardashians!”.


    • If you’ve ever read your child a book called “The Monster at the End of this Book” (which seems to be a much-loved Gen X childhood tome – I still have my copy), the “how do I make people stop commenting” thing becomes a bit….comical.

      You could build a brick wall. You could glue the website shut. But people will still keep turning pages….er, commenting.
