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...)
17th Jan '05Annual Recordby mcp
I have put up Dan's College Annual Record account of last year. This and several from recent years are under Club -> Annual Record.

Unfortunately we're missing Andrew's from the year before - I hope to get hold of it sometime this term. (4 replies...)
14th Jun '04Finding new picturesby mcp
I've changed the gallery front page so that it shows all pictures added in the last fortnight.

With so many pictures being added to the photo gallery in several places at once I thought it had become difficult to find all the new ones!

I am thinking of expanding this so that you can navigate through the pictures in the order in which they have been added using the arrows.

(btw, also personal bumps aggregate info has been fixed. Thanks to everyone who alerted us to this.) (8 replies...)
12th Jun '04Crew List Changesby mcp
I'd just like to alert everyone to the way that crew lists with subs etc can be entered against particular days of something like the bumps.

If you want your bumps stats and list of races etc to accurately reflect what you have done, then do go into Results->Enter Results and set it up! Once into May Bumps, you click 'Edit Crew'. Underneath the main crew list there is a 'New' button with instructions to click it if the crew changed for any of the races.

Making these changes should be easy but Iain and I would be perfectly happy to answer questions / queries or do it for you if send an email.
1st Jun '04AGM Minutesby ipe
The AGM minutes are now online.

Apologies for the delay. My exams are now almost over so the rest of the Committee minutes should follow in the near future. (1 reply...)
8th May '04Kit Orderby ipe
The new kit order is now also available online.

The kit order system has been developed beyond what was available last term, so that you may now view and edit your order at any time after it has been placed, until the order deadline.

Please let me know if there are any problems.
27th Apr '04Long links problem fixedby mcp
I have finally worked out a problem with trying to submit long links to the message board. Sorry to everyone who has found this annoying until now.

Better late than never. (4 replies...)
23rd Mar '04WeHoRRby ipe
I've added a small clip of the women in action at the WEHORR. It is in WMV format, here.
22nd Feb '04Picturesby mcp
The gallery has had lots of new pictures added today. Matt has done a great job of uploading all the JET photos from Mich term, and I indexed a handfull of pictures I had lying about from Lent Term 1998.

Also, just a reminder that anyone is able to update crew lists. The results section's crew lists - set up under Results -> Enter Results - tell the gallery who is in each photo, so do update the crew lists if you can fill in any gaps.
11th Feb '04Everything back on-lineby ipe
The University Computing service have been informed of the situation and have cleared the website of all allegations of rule breaking, so the College computer service have allowed everything to go back to normal. This means all email lists and groups will now function as before, and, hopefully, there will be no more disconnections.
6th Feb '04Website Downtimeby ipe
Due to issues with the University and College computing rules, the boat club mail list system is suspended. PLease do not use the @firstandthird.org group addresses until I have had a chance to stop this function. THey will be inoperable for the forseeable future.
