I am doing final testing on a big site update that focuses mainly on performance improvements and fixes.  The reason for the warning is just to let you know it's coming, so if the site starts acting funny on your computer, there is a good chance that you'll need to clear your browser cache in order to download the latest code.

Also, because the site will be upgraded to Microsoft's latest .NET library version, there is a chance that the site will need to go offline for a few minutes, depending on how things go.  So if you get an error message when accessing every page, the site has gone offline, and will return a few minutes later.

As I mentioned, there are performance improvements in this latest update.  For some people, especially those on slower connections, the performance improvements should be dramatic.  I wrote some code that compresses much of the data that gets downloaded for each page, and greatly reduces the number of files that get downloaded.  It was some pretty intense program code, but it's working really well in my development environment right now.

Some of the fixes that will be included in this update are corrected display of polls, fixed results for Lucky's Followers System for New York and Texas, send report to administrator feature in the browser test page, updates to the change avatar page, and several other minor changes that you will notice here and there.

There is also a mystery surprise that I'll activate a short time after updating the site -- something fun to do in your spare time.

I understand that some people are waiting for particular features that are not in this update.  There is no need to repeat those things here, as I know what they are.  All I can say is be patient.  There are many aspects of the site that are important, and I try to get to them all in due time.  Most importantly, I need to stay on top of the technology side of things (like performance and technology upgrades) because if I don't I will have a nightmare on my hands in the future.

            (I hope the mystery surprise isn't that 'give-away lottery' from that nutcase from an earlier post.. lol ! Eek )

            Any specific date that this will happen ?

              No, no danger of that happening.  The surprise is forthcoming -- I just have to fix a couple of things with it first.  Probably later this evening.

              BTW, the only bug I've found so far with the new site update was that premium members may have had some problems with the blog and private message editors.  I just fixed it.

                            Thanx Todd for your endless effort to this great site.

                            I just love surprises....

                            I'm hoping the surprise is a game like "Concentration". You choose a block which reveals a number and then choose another block. If the numbers match you play that number for tonight's drawing..lol

                              If they don't match... play both to be on the safe side.. with their mirrors to add insurance ..
