Out of the Blue

The results of some further tweaking by Frans are now live here. There are a couple of changes to the User Profile page for registered users. It has been cleaned up for better readability, and for supporters who signed on with a lump payment, it now shows when your pledge expires, which will end your ad-free support. Additionally, the brainstorming I mentioned last week is complete, and Frans has cooked up a kill switch for the advertising here. Our provider does an excellent job of making sure the ads here are not doing anything sketchy, but a recent takeover ad illustrated the wisdom of being able to quickly just kill the entire ad stack if it ever causes any problems. Thanks to our intrepid Chief Engineer, we now have complete control over this, which just seems prudent.

Intrepid Round-up
