6 Jan 2021 : The lights come down #
It's epiphany and that means time to remove the decorations from the site. As it happens, we'd already moved on from Christmas snow to New Year fireworks. Now we're back to bog-standard-bokeh. As we plunge through the gloomy winter months (I actually like a bit of gloom), I reflect that the next scheduled site-styling isn't until Halloween. That's rather a long way away. I should think of some other things to celebrate in between and if you get bored of bokeh, don't forget you can always tweak the style yourself.
1 Jan 2021 : Contrac 0.7.5 released #
An updated version of Contrac is now available from OpenRepos (source on github). This latest version improves the diagnosis key matching algorithm. One of the consequences of the change, and the increasing quantity of keys coming from the servers, is that the length of time to process the keys has increased significantly. I've therefore also moved the processing into a background thread so that it doesn't interfere with the sending and receiving of keys while the processing takes place.
