OK, seriously, we know a lot of you are wondering what da hell is up with the new look EURweb.
Well, here’s the deal. The old site gave up ghost as they say. Yes, it just straight up died. All you regular visitors have been first hand witnesses to the site acting cranky over the past several weeks. You probably could see the end coming so this is no surprise to you.
We actually saw it coming months ago and started planning to build a new EURweb with our eye on a Jan-Feb debut date. Of course in the meantime we were hoping that the old site would keep on chugging right up until we could make a smooth transition to the new one. But as you can see, that didn’t happen. The old site just wasn’t able to make it that far.
That’s why you’re on this temporary … interim site.
You may be wondering what happened. Well, I’m not a web techie so I can’t really break it down for you technically, but let’s just say I really, really know the pain President Obama went through with the ObamaCare website. Yes, we also had badly written code and too many visitors clicking on too many pages and objects, etc. No, I’m not saying we have the kind of traffic the ObamaCare site has (God, I wish.), but we’re not a tiny site either. Essentially we started to outgrow the capacity of the old site’s underlying code. It just couldn’t keep up.
The good news is that so far the site you’re visiting now seems to be handling the traffic quite well (crossing our fingers and saying a prayer) and hopefully will carry us forward – without any serious drama – until we complete the new EURweb that will be built to more than handle future growth. In the meantime, please be patient with us.
On last thing. Now’s the time to let us know of any new features you’d like to see us incorporate on the new site and/or just tell us what you like or don’t like about EURweb. So please feel free to scroll down to the comment area and let ‘er rip!
