ePluribus Media Tech Notes ... Upgrade Edition
Things are slowly coming back to life. Tho, it appears we may have lost the "user pictures in posts" that are uploaded into your profile. [apologies to ya'll for that]. We have added several new features ... if anybody is having problems with posting please leave a comment.

The Journal is still offline, as well as the timelines, investigates and our beloved old scoop, but these will also rise from the ashes slowly as we get all of the files transferred and the new data whatchamacallits back in place. - [update - roxy]
Well, I gotta say, this has been more fun than a barrel of monkeys. But we are slowly coming back.
[sigh] We have been putting this off, but are to the point where we HAVE to do it.
What is "it"? Upgrade, update and move the ePluribus Media websites to a higher performance server environment, perform some necessary updates to the core software (drupal) and hopefully fix/enhance some of the site features.
In order to accomplish this, we will need to take the websites down.
The site will go offline on Friday May 22 at 6PM Hawaii time and will be back when the upgrades are complete.
Take the weekend off, go on a picnic ... ePluribus and all of the political turmoil will be here when you get back.
