The Tahina Expedition web site and blog has been moved to new server software. If you’ve been using a RSS reader, you may see a flood of repeated posts – that’s because we switched over to the new server (also, the RSS feeds are experimentally shorter – leave a comment if you don’t like this). We are now a WordPress site. Most of the improvements help enhance our ability to publish the content. We can now more easily make blog posts via E-mail, it’s easier to publish changes to the site design, and there’s a number of other administrative features that are handy. There are a few new features for you – our readers:
- Improved commenting – it’s now much easier for readers to leave comments. You can also follow the comment threads via E-mail.
- E-mail support – you can now follow the blog via E-mail (see the envelope icon under “Subscribe” in the right side-bar).
- Searching – You now just get excerpts to each post which matches a search. It makes it faster to find posts you are looking for.
- Mobile Phone Support – We now provide a mobile phone version of the site (iPhone, Android, etc.) which provides a more phone-readable version of the content. The links to web site pages are in a drop-down menu on most phones. You can still toggle back to the old way if you prefer it (at the bottom of the page).
Special thanks to Mickey Mellen who helps me write the Google Earth Blog and has a lot of experience with WordPress. He did all the work in helping me move the site over to WordPress – and he was blazingly fast!
