wiki upgrades

I've moved this discussion here, off the portal talk page...

The server is managed by volunteers from The Gunroom and owned and donated by one of them. Upgrading to the latest version has been something that has been 'scheduled' for some time, but it also requires upgrading PHP & MySQL and the person who is going to do that just hasn't had time. There are a few other things that depend on the upgrade before they can be implemented, so, since it's a volunteer effort, we wait patiently for it to happen. Jblumel 14:11, 29 December 2008 (GMT)

So how many distinct content namespaces are there in the WIKI? Opus 14:27, 29 December 2008 (GMT)

The only one other than Main is the Lexicon. BTW, the addition of nautical terms to the Lexicon is high on the priority list (since you expressed interest in that). Jblumel 14:34, 29 December 2008 (GMT)

More Reading

I have spent a great deal of time these last few days devouring Desolation Island and The Fortune of War, both of which are nail-biters. The latter produced a very curious paradox of thought and feeling as I found myself, an American, rooting against my own side, as it were. The author's skill in cultivating deep sympathies for the characters overwhelms partisan loyalties and base prejudices.

I must admit that when I reached the point in the story (the battle between Java and Constitution) in which I knew Jack and Stephen were to be captured—middle of chapter 3 of The Fortune of War—I put the book down and would read no further for three days. After that, I knew that I must read on or stop altogether. Having reached now the end of FW, I can reflect on a powerful and exciting plot. Stephen is definitely a complex figure full of contradictions and inner turmoil—seemingly a pacifist but able to kill a man in cold blood. Jack is much simpler and more straightforward, and one wonders whether it is not he that is the sidekick. Opus 11:52, 3 January 2009 (GMT)
