Website (re)construction

My web hosting decided to “gift me” a “free server upgrade” instead of letting me handle the upgrade myself. And predictably, everything blew up, site became inacccessible and unmanageable, and everything was almost lost.

The good news is, most everything is back, with a slightly updated version of the original design.

The bad news: the utilities are gone for the time being. No flounce sleeve calculation until I figure out how to incorporate it again into this new theme. Also gone is the functionality to open bigger images layered onto the same page. That function has been deprecated, by the looks of it, and while I can do it in a different manner now, I am not sure I can go through the 200+ posts in the blog to fix everything as it will require quite a bit of extra work So for the time being, you’ll have to either open images in a new window, or open them in the same window then hit the back button. I’ll start fixing it backwards (newer to older), so keep that in mind when visiting.

I’m hoping the new design with more modern functionality and much easier to read on mobile platforms will make the website more accessible. I apologise in advance if the down time caused any issues, and I hope you enjoy this new updated versions. Let me know in the comments!

Sadly, because of the time consumed by this situation, I will likely not have time to do any involved “making of” post for the next couple of weeks.But will try to make up for that with some extra information posts.
