Summitlake Site Move Updates

My site move posts of November 23 and 24 (scroll well below this entry) hasn’t been updated since February 4. We do have new Photos posted, and hope you enjoy them. Here is the current status of tweaks and fixes at our new home at ICDSOFT:

  • December 20: I emailed a friend in November that our PHOTO department photo galleries were no longer loading, and the JavaScript so old it was not worth trying to fix. Not true. Apparently I was seeing another artifact of the domain transfer process; all pages load fine. Here’s a link to my 1979 Matterhorn Peak gallery folders. Enjoy, and Season’s Greetings to you all! Matterhorn Peak 1970.
  • The site stats and sidebar ephemera are working (top of right sidebar). The stats database is still being manually updated. I’m still working on new Perl code for automated updates.
  • The code change was essential as our new server runs a more recent version of Perl, 5.020002. Most date and time functions are now built-in, so calls to deprecated CPAN modules were failing. Since site statistics are all about dates and times, there was no quick-fix workaround, so I decided it was time to just rewrite and restructure 10-year-old code.
  • I borrowed time from the Perl project to investigate the broken RECIPES and HUMOR departments this morning. The fix was to just upload missing data files and graphics. They are working again.
