Will an update fix the thing where you have to manually change the "Time Offset"? A small issue, just curious.

Actually I am pretty sure the localization on our new software is correctly implemented, unless you live a time zone of great obscurity.

There are a few legendary and much derided timezones where the offset is not a complete hour.  And localities like Arizona and Nevada which use timezones other than one would expect (the former has no DST and the latter is synchronized with California, which makes sense given the meagre populations of most of its MT neighbors).  But these are trivial compared to those dark dimensions where the time is off by, say, 45 minutes (Kabul, if memory serves, and also some southerly land, Bolivia, perhaps).

Or if you live in the Chatham Islands off the east coast of the South Island of New Zealand.  They are 45 minutes ahead of NZ time.

Indeed, thats another one.

I was getting close to writing to you to suggest bringing back the link to the "Updates" page on the old "profile" box at the top of each screen that said (for me):

I pressed Back a few times and then it came up again. It seems like just as I was getting close to making the suggestion, you at the Support Team completed it. Good job.

Is this still going on? Every time I visit I'm filled with anticipation, it can't be any better for the devs?

LOL!   Seriously though, we were going to do it in May, but I got very sick with a digestive ailment and we are behind schedule.

The biggest problem I see with this forum is it's not mobile-responsive.

That's mobile, but perhaps shooting a bit too high? It's an internet discussion forum after all. Maybe something comparable with Reddit?

So good news, I spoke with Anastasios and it looks like we are going to migrating to the new forum software tomorrow.  I had intended to do it last month but my dear friend Frank became unexpectedly ill, and died.

Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no idea, so there’s that.

Thank you.  I am very sad but I am firm in my resolve to do a good job on the migration to honor him.  Anastasios and I had to engage in exceedingly complex preparations and we also had to migrate OCNet to a newer and better server, but all that has been done, and we are I guess you could say “ready to rock.”

We're making progress!

Just want to acknowledge: I'm sure to some, this is how the "approaching" feels -



But we're making progress!
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, & godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope & glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed & purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.  Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. (Titus 2:11-15)

I just spoke with Anastasios, he has had a delay come up, so we might not be able to complete the migration tomorrow, but we will at the very least be doing some final internal testing, so it should not be much longer.
