Out of the Blue

I asked furn to look at what seemed to be a problem with the 'Previous 2 days' link offered at the bottom of this and other news pages here that facilitate scrolling back through older news posts, since it became apparent over time that these links suffered from some sort of problem that caused them to operate quite slowly at times. It turns out there was indeed a way of addressing this, and now that furn has tweaked it, in addition to those links no longer requiring a coffee break between being clicked and displaying the resulting page, the overall CPU load here has dropped to the point where other scripted elements that were not noticeably laggy to start with are now that much zippier, as things like archive searches whip along much more quickly now. Viva blammo!

While on the subject of glitches, I can no longer send news from my home email address because your server spam-blocks me- not sure why. Here's what I get:
3D Gamers handles mail for the domain. Please email me ( the entire bounce message with all headers (if you have another address to send it from, otherwise it'll bounce as well of course - in that case you may have to post at least your domain here, if you don't like to post your full email address), then I'll look into it.
