Got | Apex? Site News
Just a quick update for everyone.* As you can see, we`re back to the old
format, at least temporarily.* The new site is being worked on, both for
compatibility and speed.* I`m out here in New Jersey on vacation, but I
took my laptop, so I`ve been working up to 10 hours a day.* Heh, not much
of a vacation, eh?* Anyhow, here`s the skinny on everything as it stands:
- New site will hopefully be finished soon.* As the work stands right
now, it`s roughly as fast as this site on the first load.* However,
when you navigate to other pages, it`s definitely faster than this design.
- Compatibility is also being worked on.* It`s gone a long way, but
still has a bit to go.* Unfortunately, Netscape likes to do everything
differently.* Joy.* We do have about 3% Netscape users though, and
we`re committed to getting it running.
- Comments, of course are always welcome and GREATLY appreciated.*
Please post them to the forums we opened up specifically for that
purpose.* The designer (as well as all of us) will be reading that
section daily.* Because there is absolutely no way to read/answer all
the emails associated with this issue, all emails regarding the design will
be filtered into the recycle bin.* Public sentiment seems to be:
"We`d rather you work on finding deals then individually answering
emails when an avenue to handle comments has already been established in the
- We`ve integrated the stores database into this design.* Just look at
the upper left box.* This makes all the coupons searchable by
store.* This is probably one of the most useful tools for getting the
best possible deals for any purchase you may be looking to make.
- Also, the deals archive is searchable by date and by word.* The
archive doesn`t extend back that far because the old one was just text, the
new one is database driven.* We`d have to enter everything by
hand.* It`ll grow with time, however.
- I`ll be back home on the 29th.* Until then, I`ll be on the net as
much as possible, but it won`t be fulltime.* Hope everyone`s having a
great Christmas season.* Best wishes and thanks to everyone who stuck
with us during these transitions.
