We will be doing an experiment; I thought you should know.

As you know, freethoughtblogs.com has switched to a new server, and we are now in that post server-switch phase of adjusting everything that got broke during the move.

One of the problems we are having behind the scenes is this: Normally, if you open a blog post (or start one up) in edit mode, you see the current text and HTML code and stuff, you can change that, you can save that, and then the post on line is different according to those changes. What is actually happening is that there is almost no relationship, sometimes, between what you do and what comes out on the site. If you make a change, publish the change and verifiy it is there, then re-open the post and make a second change, there is a pretty good chance that the first change will be gone. Or, if you just let the post sit there and auto-saving happens, then the post may revert to an old form. And so on.

So, we are doing an experiment in which The X Blog (singularly and in particular) will have it’s HyperCache turned off. We are not sure but we are thinking that could be the cause. Or, more exactly, I was whinging about it possibly being the cause, in the back channel, and the IT Tzar, Mat, took that as me volunteering to have mine turned off to see what would happen.

Thus, HyperCache will be disabled on The X Blog during the night tonight (Wednesday).

After that, I’ll mess around with editing stuff and see if those problems go away. For your part, you can report anything interesting or strange that you observe, and make comments on performance.

The strange things you observe and issues of performance may or may not be related to this blog. As long as it is interesting.

Thank you very much.

  1. I just capp’es “K” in “know” and saved it. It saved. Then I made “f” in “freethought” small and it saved, but the capp’ed K went away.

    I’m assuming the caching is stil lrunning at the present time, 11-23-10:52PM

  2. “Gimme all yer hypercache, or the dame gets it!” –Old movie quote

    Experiment? Aren’t we just supposed to throw a live UNIX programmer in the volcano, at which point the volcano will fix the servers?

  3. For your part, you can report anything interesting or strange that you observe, and make comments on performance.

    Do you even read your own blog? How can we tell the difference?
