The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Site maintenance

Site maintenance

I'm stealing Mark's posting spot to apologize for any website problems you've had this weekend.  Joey and I have been playing around with the site to make it go a little faster, but unfortunately it broke a few times in the process.  The good news is that using the search and comment features now seems to be about twice as fast!  Thanks for putting up with site maintenance --- I think it's all over now (unless I break anything else).

Edited to add: I'm making one more change at 6:30 pm, so you may have trouble again for a few hours Sunday evening.  Tomorrow, hopefully, this will all be sorted out!

About us: Anna Hess and Mark Hamilton spent over a decade living self-sufficiently in the mountains of Virginia before moving north to start over from scratch in the foothills of Ohio. They've experimented with permaculture, no-till gardening, trailersteading, home-based microbusinesses and much more, writing about their adventures in both blogs and books.

Sometimes it is good to be in a different timezone. I didn't notice a thing. :-)

Ping times to waldeneffect.org are around 100 ms for me, which doesn't seem too bad considering I'm on the other side of the Atlantic.

Previewing and submitting comments always seems to take a long time for me. Just previewing a comment takes 5-10 seconds. That is not a complaint BTW, just an observation.

For longer comments I tend to write them in a text editor anyway. It's easier to organize my thoughts that way because I can look at the article and the other comments while working on mine. And it keeps me from pressing the cancel button by accident.

Is it possible to login using https using a plain old password? I dislike sending passwords in the clear.
