Greater City Providence
Technical Difficulties

Sorry for all the emails… :(

Earlier today I was updating the website to a new theme. And I clicked a button that said import, then after I clicked it, I realized in horror what it was going to do.

It imported all the posts from the theme’s test site and made them into new posts on this site, all 50-something of them. Ugh.

Worse still, it emailed each post to everyone who is subscribed to receive new posts by email, so sorry about that, I was annoyed by it too.

I think everything is under control now so that shouldn’t happen again.

  • I was entranced to see all those messages from you in one day. As I read through the first few, it was fun to try and figure out what language they were in. Finally, by message No. 43 or so, I realized it was Greek to me.


  • We had fun at Revival, reading the strings of buzzwords out loud. It’s like perfect SEO text.
