Server reboot and patches applied

I applied a bunch of system patches, did a server reboot, and upgraded to the latest version of Drupal today. The server took about 5 minutes to come back, which is longer than usual, and just long enough to make me worry that I was going to have to spend the rest of my day emailing back and forth with tech support. Happily, it looks like everything came back fine.

Please let me know if you run into any problems.

Floyd, I just knew you shouldn't play around with those Drupals ( whatever it or they are.) I don't know if it just coincidence but I am having to sign in every time, also when I hit preview it comes up so pale that I can barely read it. Despite that I still think you and the site are wonderful! Many thanks and Happy New Year to you and your family, A.

Thank you Floyd, A.

Floyd, have you thought about adding an "email me when someone replies" function?  I have been forced to get creative and add a bookmark folder with "comments" just to keep track of discussions.

 I have to run and add this to my book mark folder :)

 

Cheers

What you suggest would surely be nice.  I go to "Recent Posts" and click on the tab "My Recent Posts" to see if there's been any activity in any threads I've initiated or responded to.  Of course you have to scroll through the whole thing to find what's "new".

Clicking on the "Subscribe Post" link at the bottom of the first post in the thread should do that for any given thread.

I'll probably do a larger upgrade this spring or summer. I'll try to clean things up more then.

Ah I didn't see that "Subscribe to Post" link. Now I can start to use that :)

 

EDIT:  I started to go around to all the discussions I was following and noticed that not all of them have the email link:

I started out with "Subscribe Post" but decided to disable it.  I would get an e-mail for EVERY posting to the thread.  I interpreted TableBread's request as referring to replies to a specific post within a thread.  However, since people don't always "reply" when they should, I like my way better.
