I will do some larger-scale maintenance on the site in the last week of December. I do not expect any significant downtime, and will announce both here and on Facebook if it becomes necessary, but if you see a call to copy your posts to clipboard before clicking "submit" in the next week-and-a-half, do please heed it.

ToDos:
-routine database backup and maintenance (table optimization, various recounts, reindex, etc)
-an attempt to improve database connection stability (solve the problem of very short, <1 second, drops in service throughout the day. I'm not certain that I can, but I will try)
-scheduled software updates (among them, some manual updates to files affected by mods)
