Yup - I have made some changes and I made out a "project plan" on 28 July. But all in all, nothing I am changing is what I consider "significant" other than to get into WMT and work with the URL parameters part in an effort to reduce duplicate thread titles, conflicts with t and p in URLs (etc.) and such, and yes I think the site is in my profile here (long time since I've even looked at my profile here...). It was down (as in dropping off a cliff on 25-28 July) but the last 2 weeks it appears to be coming back. But like I say - I see things longer term than many. I'll have all the changes complete within a week, 2 at most. From then on it's - Well, I'll just say "fate". I consider myself lucky that I don't depend upon income from it to live on.
If nothing else, I can say I had a relatively popular web site for 15 years. Up until a couple weeks ago it was always ranked at least around 70K to 85K or lower in Alexa (I know, but it's a "relative" indicator).
So - That's the scoop. I will say I was in total shock the first 2 weeks but I'm past that now.
The internet, it is a changin'... Like Dorothy not being in Kansas any more, I'm not in the internet of the 1990's and 2000 to 2005 any more.
