Over the next couple days you may experience some strangeness with Woody Boater.. Insert Strange jokes here. Strangerness than the normal strangeness. We are replacing and upgrading the engine that drives WoodyBoater. As in Woody Boater has graduated to being on a dedicated server. Yup, this little monster of a 13 year old site can no longer share a server with others. We have been limping along for about 6 months and its great effected search, and other stuff. Speed etc. I made a design choice a while back that I was not going to conform the sites design to reduce the size of the home page. Yes I know it would help, but the design is so usable and what you all like, that a larger engine would be better, yes cost more, but like our boats, design is paramount, just throw a larger engine in there to push the old design forward.
Okay, to many this is gobbledygook. but in a nutshell, how this all works. The design of the site, like a boat is the hull and do dads that make it unique, the engine in the bilge is the SERVER, and we need a V12 to move this sucker through the slog of data it tows along. As in your images, comments and over 5500 ish stories,
So, what to expect over the next couple days. Not much, they say at my speed shop, you wont notice a thing, but we may loose a comment or such during a special time. Sunday night I think, during the Super bowl. That is the time of the engine transplant. We will be in the waiting area waiting for the digital Drs to do their thing. So, thats the news from the engine room. Full Speed ahead! WHAT? did you hear that? I smell megabytes leaking?
AND NO THIS WON’T AFFECT THE CR-APP! That thing is a mess. Thats old design. Thats next on the list.
