29th Oct '06Website cockupby bjg
Having made all my planned changes to the Light IVs section of the database, I then accidentally cocked the whole thing up and have had to restore from the backup I made this morning. So everything still looks broken but I'll have it fixed this evening! (If you missed my earlier posts explaining what I was doing, they've been lost too...)

Huge apologies to Simon, whose poll was lost in the process - please submit it again next week if you can remember the options! (1 reply...)
2nd Oct '06Website downtime againby bjg
Sorry for yet another interruption - this will have been no surprise to people within Trinity, but for those outside, they have a system of quarantine that briefly locks us down at the start of each term. I seem to have been able to get us a special exemption so that this won't happen again, at least for this year, but we'll have to wait and see.

However...

The network is going down again between 7pm and 9pm tomorrow evening, so unfortunately we will have yet more downtime. I'm fed up with it too! (2 replies...)
27th Sep '06Website downtimeby bjg
Fortunately for Phil and me, our new carpet is coming tomorrow morning. Unfortunately for you, the valued website user, that means that we'll have to disconnect the server while it is being laid. According to the works department, this will be 'mid to late morning'. We therefore hope that the website will be back by the afternoon. (1 reply...)
24th Sep '06Website back onlineby bjg
Many apologies for the lack of website over the last week and a bit. Hopefully all problems are now sorted, and work productivity will now reach the low levels to which we are accustomed.
25th Feb '06Bumps testingby mcp
I've got to do some testing of the Bumps stuff, so please ignore new results for the afternoon.
18th Feb '06Site login changesby mcp
We've just installed a number of changes 'under the bonnet' of how the members' login works. Have tested it as thoroughly as I can so please email webmaster@firstandthird.org straightaway if there is anything at all which doesn't seem to work as normal.

Thank you.
20th Jan '06Email lists brokenby mcp
There is currently a problem with the site's groups feature - any mail sent to them is returned undelivered. This is something we are aware of and are hoping will be sorted asap. (2 replies...)
3rd Nov '05Website & email problemsby mcp
Please be aware that the website is not able to deliver email to groups - and has a few other problems - at the moment.

This is due to a complicated technical glitch on Trinity's computer network. The web server is not able to access the internet, despite the fact inbound web requests are getting in ok.

This has been raised with the Trinity computing officers who will hopefully let us know today what they can do and when. (2 replies...)
13th May '05Election Manifestosby mcp
Mark has received one manifesto for Sunday week's elections - from Andy Wong - so far.

This is now added to the Committee -> Elections page and others will be added as soon as they are received. (2 replies...)
2nd Mar '05Gallery picture qualityby mcp
I've decided to increase the quality setting of pictures in the photo gallery. Until now many pictures have been looking a bit blurry and have 'artefacts' of the JPEG format compression.

This means that the images will take about 30% longer to download on slower connections, but I think is worth it.

The site is currently regenerating all the standard size images with the new setting. Note that, because of the special settings applied to pictures on this website, if you want to see these improvements for photos you've already looked at you will need to empty your browser's cache. (In Internet Explorer go to Tools->Internet Options and under Temporary Internet Files on the first tab click Delete Files....) That said, note you don't need to do anything to see the new higher quality for pictures added from now on. (1 reply...)
