Once it was figured out, a simple change of settings set things straight. Sorry for any inconvenience.

I’ve installed a new theme. My plan is for it to be the last of these for a while (still, no promises). It’s a bit better behaved than the previous one and works marvelously with the WP 3.6 betas.

TIB Has Moved – The Migration Experience to WordPress 3.0

For good or for ill, I’ve moved TIB over to Wordpress 3.0. What does this mean? For you guys, it pretty much just means that instead of typing “http://cjcs.com/tib” you’ll be typing “http://tib.cjcs.com”. Hopefully that will be the only significant inconvenience you’ll have.

June 28, 2009 Outage

My apologies for this site being unavailable for at least 10 hours on June 28, 2009. A critical file on the T I B site which should never get mangled somehow got mangled. It happened at the worst possible time: right after I’d stopped personally monitoring the site for the day (hey, even I have to sleep at some point).
