It just goes to show you it can happen to anyone! Our blog was amongst those that got deleted during the recent attack on a Blacknight Server. Happily I have all the posts archived. Sadly my fairy godmother is off this week so there’s no magic wand to wave to post all our items since August again. Patience, my lovelies, and I’ll have the site looking as right as rain again!
Between 12pm and 1pm today the main IIA.ie website will be unavailable for a period. We are adding a new module to the site that affects the functionality and the design of some aspects of the site. Although we have tested it in a live-like environment we would prefer to bash it about a bit in a live environment before releasing it completely. We hope you understand. We appreciate your patience.
You can check out our twitter feed for updates although I will of course be busy testing the new module!
I’ve been with the IIA two months now (so I should really stop saying I’ve been working here six weeks) and what do I have to show for myself? Well there’s a rake of new members and anyone who had a gander at the original Membership, Marketing and Communications Manager job spec will know that I will be buying each and everyone of those a drink when I DO meet them. Please form an orderly queue. If you would also like to get a free drink from me join the IIA, you can apply online in four easy steps.
One of my other priorities has been some improvements to our site and while I know what I would like changed or added, it might not be the very thing that you would like changed or added. I have been getting some helpful comments from some of my twittering friends (Hello what? Twitter???) and as you can see they are no holds barred and I’m still standing. So c’mon IIA members – bring it on! You have probably been using the site longer than I so please tell me what you want to change, what you love, what you hate. Get it off your chest. Better out than in and all that.
The cartoon above is purely for comical affect: I will accept all comments and suggestions graciously. Please add them via comments below or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ve also been inviting myself to the odd do here and there. I am looking forward to the Firefox 3 Launch party. Firefox are hoping to get into the Guinness Book of Records by having the most people downloading a piece of software at the same time. Now what would Roy make of that?
