    It seems to have worked, and perhaps faster than hoped. (I am at the new address, and if this posts, then comments are open – about 6:30 pm CDT)Report

    Looks good. Congratulations! (Haven’t tried writing a post yet, so reserve judgement on those aspects of the site.)

    As I’ve mentioned in the past, almost every web page I download is processed by a piece of JavaScript that “rewrites” things to limit most text to two fonts and a small number of sizes, and enforce more readable character- and line-spacing. In addition to the generic code, there are bits to deal with the peculiarities of sites that I visit regularly. There’s about 30 lines specifically for Ordinary Times.

    Much to my surprise, it all works on the new version of the site. The class and id names are the same — or close enough, in terms of regular expressions — that the code correctly picks them out and applies its changes. Remarkable! I had anticipated spending at least an afternoon taking pages apart and finding new identifiers.

    Looks fine but for whatever reason the corporate filters think the new url is evil or something so I won’t be able to view it from qork. Le sigh, what a pain.Report

      Oh, that is frustrating. I have no idea why. The new URL has been pretty much doing nothing ever. The previous people held on to it to sell it, gave up, we bought it, and did nothing with it until now.Report

      • Avatar North in reply to Will Truman says:

        Nothing on you at all. The employer has been gradually tightening their filters on internet use for ages so i don’t know if it is a change they made or the new Url or what. Obviously i can’t just slide up to IT and ask why they are blocking my favorite at work time sink. Heh.Report

    State of the Discussion seems to be updating erratically this morning. Different most recent comments showing different ages in different places. Is anyone else having that problem?Report
