Site Issues

For some odd reason, the front page of OTB is not rendering yet it’s accessible through individual archive pages.  More oddly, the latter is only true in Internet Explorer; Firefox isn’t loading anything.

My two tech guys are out and about (it’s Sunday afternoon) and I’ve exhausted my own skills here so it’s wait and see I’m afraid. 

(This is here, incidentally, mostly for those reading the site via RSS. )

UPDATE: Fixed. A MySQL table somehow got corrupted. Ed Burns managed to recover it.

We waited on upgrading to WordPress 2.5, which was a major update, until the release of 2.51 because of some issues. Apparently, it still doesn’t play well with a lot of plug-ins. Had I known it was going to be this much trouble, I’d have just stayed with 2.2x.

    It all looks fine as of 1:47 EDT.

    I’m busy replacing lightning-struck equipment. A really close thunderbolt burnt through my surge protectors, UPS, modem, network card, and, apparently, part of my motherboard.

    That income tax incentive payment can’t come too soon…
