2012-02-04 Roger upgraded Teflpedia to MediaWiki 1.18.1

So this page is now an old hat, kept it for the log

On February 4, 2012 we upgraded Teflpedia to MediaWiki 1.18.1

New users and anonymous users will see Teflpedia in the new Vector skin (site appearance).

Veteran users, you will only see the new Vector skin till log in, then the old Monobook skin with light gray background of open book pages behind page top. However, you can choose the new Vector skin in My Preferences > Appearance (select the new Vector skin and click Save at page bottom).

Spammers, we have questions for you when you try to register or post links. OOoooooooooooooooo. Bye bye spammers.... Read all about it.

Server Upgrade! shhh![edit]

Don't tell anyone, certainly not your spouse.

Teflpedia has moved, in concert with the MediaWiki 1.18.1 upgrade, from a EUKhost server that used to go to sleep at night, was groggy or even off line between say 2:00-3:00 AM Bilbao time because no one said anything, to a Dathorn server that, well, smacks of science fiction! Vvvvvvvvvvvrrrrroomm--tzzzzap.

If you ever have trouble surfing Teflpedia or it is sluggish, let us know. We aim high, but do sleep at night.

Alertra has a free Spot Check box (in orange bar near top of their homepage) that you can type teflpedia.com into, to see how fast Teflpedia responds around the world. Cool. Spot Check another site's URL to compare.

  • My Firefox spell checker has quit working! (Hay, what's that got to do with Teflpedia!)
Never mind. My Firefox spell checker is working again; I don't know why. --Roger 23:53, 11 February 2012 (CST)
