I can't think of a better task to do when required for medical reasons to stay in bed for six weeks with your right foot elevated!
This site has been coded and developed by me over the last 13 years and suffered on many counts from being created in an ad-hoc way. Even with the cross-referencing capabilities of PHP Storm, it was very hard to make small changes or repairs without the risk of thing breaking.
So, to move the site to the new server (two servers, one for the website and one for the database) the whole of the code has been refactored into the many and various PSR coding standards.
This means that everything has been checked and rechecked. I've fixed some features that weren't quite working and improved some others.
The reasons are several. Firstly to protected your data and information as best I can. The second is to ensure that you can continue to use the auto-location for the prediction system, which is about to be removed from non-SSL servers. A third reason is to help with Google ranking. And it can't help to have more defences against the general attacks the server comes under. Also powerful SSD backed solution costs about a third of the old hosting for ten times the power!
The new server is sending out the emails to you all using Sendgrid. This will allow me soon to detect defunct email addresses and stop them being sent pointlessly. It should also give your mail servers better confidence that the messages have a genuine source.
I'll post an update later about the changes.
