On this, our 414th. weekly update (featured below) , we, the Witchvox staff offer our deepest regrets to the families and friends devastated by last week's horrific tragedy from the Tsunami (140, 000 dead as of this writing) ... It is incredibly inspiring to witness the quick and generous offerings of support coming from all over the planet. We dedicate our community work this week to the givers of this planet.
Thank YOU: Wren and Fritz offer our profound thanks to Witchvox staff members Diotima and Runewolf for coordinating, editing and delivering our weekly features... They have done this without fail for years and we simply can't thank them enough. - Our deepest thanks also go out the the hundreds of you that have become or continue to be Witchvox sponsors. - You pay to keep this site online and your belief in this community effort is an inspiration to us all.
Changes (and lots of 'em) : We are kicking off the new year by 'jumping off the cliff' with WAMS (the Witchvox Article Management System) - This new structure will finally marry Articles and Essays to user accounts, offering more intelligent structure to the entire site... Parts of this code are shaky so please bare with us whilst we do some fine-tuning. Also planned for the next couple of weeks is the installation of the Zend Performance Suite... This site controller will give our MYsql database a big time break. - Fact is, the pages at TWV are too LIVE, every page you hit makes LIVE call to the database. By (finally) working with 'cached pages' (every five minutes) we should be able to reduce the SQL calls by 70%, giving substantial relief to our overtaxed server. GEEK SPEC. - In just the past 4 days our MYsql database has processed 16, 789, 408 requests (that's 47.22 every second)
What this SQL mumbo-jumbo means that we will be able to 'push' this page and others with much more information.
RSSin': Our recent implementation of RSS feeds for Wren's Nest and Site Features has been very popular and in the past 5 weeks has experienced just over 100, 000 grabs... IF you are RSSin' Witchvox 'news' into your php or PostNuke site - Please let us know so we can thank you and see how it looks. - Look for more feeds this year...
2005... Wow! Opportunity awaits and do know that our Whiteboard is still laced with some 200 plus 'must doos' for this site. - Ideas are cheap, time to implement them is always where the struggle lies. Also know that we should see a bit more time to hammer some of these 'ideas' during q1 2005.
Thanks to all of you that feed this site with your magic and heart. You continue to create something wonderful for Pagans all over the World.
