So, the new version of The Jalopy Journal/H.A.M.B. was planned to launch on the Monday after the Lonestar Round Up. But that weekend, we had a really big development from a technology partnership standpoint (more on that later) that was essentially a really cool opportunity I couldn't pass up. It also meant, however, that we were going to have to do a lot of new code on the new version of the site that we had just completed. So, we spent a lot of sleepless nights writing all of this new code for this new mysterious feature. Yesterday, we started testing on the development server and when all of the sudden, the production graphic server crashed. Excuse the french, but it was fucking horrifying. We back up everything on the hour, but because of the new development taking a lot of server resources we hadn't backed up in three days. I thought we had lost A LOT of content. Long story short, we lost nothing... And we figured out the issue. Unfortunately, it had everything to do with the code we had been writing the past week on the dev server. It's a complicated deal that I don't truly understand - thank god for Germans. Anyway, we are now getting the development server back up and running and will soon start testing again. However, we are going to be a little bit more deliberate this time so as not to effect production again. If I had to guess, we are now two weeks out from the new launch. I want to test this thing thoroughly even though I know that no matter what we will launch with all kinds of bugs... cuz well, I'm an amateur and I do stupid things. It's gonna be cool though. So there ya have it. Hold on to your hat cowboy... This is by far the biggest and most ambitious version update of TJJ/HAMB that we have ever done in our 20 YEARS of doing this. You guys are probably going to want to kill me until you get used to it and figure it out... but once you do, it's gonna be something else.
