By way of update, we've selected and secured a new server which will be suitable for both testing and being the new production server. It is vastly superior to our current hardware and also cheaper. For now I am just paying for it, but obviously once we switch over you, the OPERATORs, will take on that financial burden. It's only $33 a month though so in theory it is sustainable forever with the current patreon income. (thanks patrons!)
If you glance back at the schedule you saw some tasks related to testing Lynxchan 1.8, so in addition to working on getting everything customized just right, we are also, for once, on the bleeding edge of imageboard technology.
Senseless has been working tirelessly on this, so make sure to thank him if you run into him on the interwebs. godverdomme, ihc, and a few other folks have also been very helpful as well as the lynxchan dev, StephenLynx.
Thanks also to retro for sperging out on some textfiles for me, much appreciated.
Pic related, trying to tame the good idea fairies. We have a pretty substantial set of modifications to make, so it's likely we can't entertain more change requests at this point.
