Re: ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT MAIN SITE'S TEMP CLOSURE
(I'm not sure if there are any that can't be paid in pizza and Italian-chocolate-liquor)
What are the chances of this timing... I send my laptop hosting my private status-tracker in for service at the same time this site stops telling me stuff... Ah well, it should come back soon enough.
I would ask for a simple table with the statuses (one query, about a 10-min job), but then you might as well use the pretty colorscheme, and then make the individual info visible, and then give the info pages.... Which in the end is what you're doing; making a new version.
