A slightly belated Happy New Year to you all, and a quick update, one year into this third reading of the diary.
News about this site and other Pepys-related events.
You might have noticed, when reading annotations on a screen with a narrow width, like a phone held vertically, that a handful of annotations were slightly mis-aligned and some of their text disappeared off the edge of the screen.
Today I’ve ceased the posting of tweets to the @samuelpepys Twitter account. I haven’t been happy using the service for a long time now, due to its current owner – and have stopped using it personally – but so many people enjoy Pepys on there that I didn’t want to deny them the pleasure.
Kate posted this to the discussion list and I thought it was worth highlighting here – various new resources from the Museum of London that feature Pepys. They’re aimed at young children – around age 6 or 7 – and are focused on the Great Fire of London, deaf Londoners, and the shorthand that Pepys used.
Every diary entry now displays that day’s sunrise and sunset times in the sidebar, alongside any other related links.
Almost a couple of weeks into the new year and the diary, here’s a collection of updates about the site.
I’ve been running this site for twenty years now (I look so young!) and as we begin the third decade and the third reading I thought I’d try something new – I’ve set up the ability to financially support the site, using Ko-fi.
As far as I know, the recent server move has gone smoothly, with nothing (new) broken. I’ve made a couple small changes to the site recently:
If you’re reading this, then you’re seeing the site on a new server. I think everything is working OK, but if you come across anything that’s unusually broken do email me to let me know.
