We're back Site News
As I'm sure most of you have noticed, MacOSXHints was not in action since mid-May. There was an issue with the site software, but I'm really happy to say that is now fixed, and I look forward to resuming publication of new hints. This is especially pleasing as the Public Beta of OS X Yosemite approaches, and the new goodies in iOS 8 as well.

I'll just say it's good to be back.

You rotten kid; you didn't call, you didn't write… we were about to notify Missing Persons...

Geez. Throw up a static page to let people know. You must not really care a whole lot about your readers. How many did you lose because they thought your site was dead?

The problem was such I couldn't even submit a comment, let alone create a static page. I did post about it over in the MacOSXHints forums, so that is worth checking if this problem recurs.

Great news. Glad to have you back. When both MacFixIt and Mac OX X Hints vanished within days of each other I was was a bit concerned.

Glad you're back, I've missed you!

Might be time to consider replacing the sidebar "Latest Mountain Lion Hints" with "Latest Yosemite Hints". Also, the link that points to "complete coverage of Lion on MacWorld" returns a 404.

I'll see if that's something I can fix. If it is, I will. If not, no promises.

Excellent!

It seems you've gotten rid of that weird "answer questions to see content" thing too.

Double-Excellent!

And that may have been related to the problems publishing new hints; I just don't know. I'm trying to find out what happened, and if there's anything I can do to prevent it from happening again.
