|28th Mar '07||Website downtime||by mcp|
|Just to let people know that we might be taking the site down for a few hours tonight to do some maintenance. May not be necessary, not sure yet.|
Something (as yet unknown) is causing the site to run a bit slowly - due to the web server getting stuck trying to respond to a number of requests and thus gobbling up all available memory and CPU etc. (9 replies...)
|20th Mar '07||Michell Cup points||by bjg|
|Results pages for Lent and May bumps now include a bottom of page summary of Michell Cup points earnt in that competition. This will probably be more useful for calculating points earnt in the future than looking at those earnt in the past, but they're there anyway!|
I've just had to make a couple of tweaks to deal with the (pointless for this purpose) years without women and/or bumps charts. If anything else appears to be broken, please let me know!
|5th Mar '07||News and Announcements||by bjg|
|Apologies for the temporary absence of the News and Announcements section - I couldn't think why it looked so empty... There's an important item up now!|
|27th Feb '07||Photo Gallery Tweak||by mcp|
|Inspired by Bryn's recent innovations, I have tweaked the photo gallery so that you can navigate between newly added photos using the yellow navigation arrows above each picture. (Previously these arrows would navigate the photos sorted by crew so it was awkward to see just pictures added since your last visit. You'll probably notice what I mean if you use the 'recent pictures' page of the gallery.) Any objections / bugs / suggestions for further changes would be gratefully received. Oh, and if anyone wants to view them all in order, here's the start.|
|25th Feb '07||Boat information||by bjg|
|As part of the never-ending struggle to make the wealth of information on this website more readily-available, I've added a page with a list of the club's boats. This can be accessed from the menu by selecting 'the Club' and then 'Boats', or directly here. From there you can click through to view a boat's history (as previously accessible from crew lists) and its results in the same style as for a rower.|
One of the consequences of this is it has become much more apparent how much information is missing... Please let me know about any gaps that you can fill in!
|29th Oct '06||Website cockup||by 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 '06||Website downtime again||by 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.|
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 '06||Website downtime||by 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 '06||Website back online||by 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 '06||Bumps testing||by mcp|
|I've got to do some testing of the Bumps stuff, so please ignore new results for the afternoon.|
|18th Feb '06||Site login changes||by 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 email@example.com straightaway if there is anything at all which doesn't seem to work as normal.|
|20th Jan '06||Email lists broken||by 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 '05||Website & email problems||by 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 '05||Election Manifestos||by 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 '05||Gallery picture quality||by 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 '05||Annual Record||by 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 '04||Finding new pictures||by 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 '04||Crew List Changes||by 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 '04||AGM Minutes||by 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 '04||Kit Order||by 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.
