Some boring admin. Mechanics have been busy with some software changes that make this site work.
Despite the dramatic photo – Raymond Poulidor having a moment in Paris-Roubaix – there was no crashed website or broken server here. Instead it’s more the equivalent of changing some worn headset bearings and tuning some spokes; in tech terms replacing some old and unsupported code with new alternatives.
And this post is part of the test to see if it works, the equivalent of putting a wheel back in the frame, lifting the rear wheel up and turning the pedals to see if things work. With luck nobody will notice any changes but if you do spot anything unusual, leave a comment or send an email as chances are you’ve spotted it before the mechanics have.
Fingers crossed, all set for 2024.
