I’d like to inform you about three very important site updates. Here we go:
Feel the Pulse by sections
Our unique Feel the Pulse is an essential tool in LumberJock’s toolbox. And now it’s got even better. Few days ago, I’ve received private message from Dick about his Pulse improvement suggestion. He thought it would be great to be able to filter the activities by the main sections. This weekend his idea turned into reality so now you can browse the Pulse by projects, blogs, forums, workshops and jocks. More cool filters will be added to the Pulse in the coming weeks.. stay tuned.
More computer power
Popularity of our site is booming and this results in the increased traffic. I’ve decided to upgrade our computer power this weekend to make the browsing more responsive and faster. Guys at Rimuhosting, where our server is hosted, did a great job so the upgrade process was smooth. Hope we will need to upgrade soon again ;)
More computer power means higher monthly fees so I’ve finally decided to add ads powered by Google AdSense program. For now you can see two strips of ads on the pages – smaller one on the top and larger one on the bottom. I wanted to make them as unobtrusive as possible so the narrower strip is located at the top to prevent you from the annoying scrolling. The color scheme of the ads is white on brown so they blend nicely with the rest of the design. Let me know what you think about them, please.
All in all, I think this has been one very productive weekend.. thanks for all the tips, suggestions, encouragements – they mean a lot to me. Just keep them coming ;)
