Thanks for your patience! Tech work update

Thank you so much for your patience. We’ll be starting to publish new stories again, now that our technical project is complete. For the first time in almost nine years, we have moved server companies, to address various issues that have worsened in recent months and weren’t being resolved. If you’re seeing this message, you’re seeing WSB at its new “home”; most ISPs take just a few hours to recognize such changes for websites, but some take longer, so if for example you check WSB at work tomorrow and don’t see updates beyond a “site note” post timestamped this morning, that’s what’s going on. Or if you see any other type of problem on the site right now, please let us know – we’ve tested and tweaked but you might notice something we didn’t – – also try clearing your browser cache/history if you can (or refresh the page while holding down the shift or control key, depending on your browser). Thank you, and now on with the news (it’s been a quiet day so far in West Seattle, we’re happy to say).

    Looks like you moved to Linode – not a bad choice!  They’ve been fairly reliable for hosting some of my personal stuff.

    Also, congratulations on enabling IPv6! has address has IPv6 address 2600:3c00::f03c:91ff:fefb:eda2

      Thanks; we keep trying to modernize, as the site approaches its 12th anniversary (10 years as a newsbiz). Eventually https, too. – TR

    What you two are talking about (all the tech-ie terms)… it all Greek to me! (Thanks for the updating though)

    That was actually really fast!  Hardly had a chance to miss you :)  Hope this works out well for you…
