URL Hosting (May 2013) Due to various problems in the early years of the site with hosting services either unreliable or disappearing, I've been using two hosting services with the various URLs split between them just for the security of knowing I have a back up. Both the services I've used in recent years have been quite reliable - reliable enough to the extent that I am fairly confident that a back-up is unnecessary and I've been transferring urls to a single host. The second last, apatheticagnostic.com, was transferred this week. Within the next month or so, I will finish the process by moving uctaa.net, and then we will no longer have a mirror site.
During that time, uctaa.net may disappear for a couple of days. It will return.
I've also made a decision to no longer pay for apatheticagnostic.info. I'm going to let it lapse at the next renewal. If anyone would like to take it over for an affiliated purpose, please let me know and I will probably be prepared to transfer it.
As a result of these two decisions, my cost to maintain the site will decrease - not an insignificant matter when I meet all expenses out of my own pocket.
Technical Assistance (May 2013) Once I have the site hosted on one service, it should be easier to implement some things to improve the site.
- I'd like a "search the site" button on each page.
- I'd like to provide a "comment" option on each page to have comments appear as they do on a blog. If I go this way, I'd like to to be a "sign-in" system, which means some kind of process to validate those who want to comment.
Not related to single hosting, but something I should do is amend my templates and css to size pages according to device (phone / tablet / computer.) I'm overdue to get a little more user-friendly.
One or more volunteers to assist would be appreciated.
CRS Updated (November 2012) Instructions for Bishops revised.
Chat Room: (October 2012) Now closed due to a change in the hosting package for the site.
uctaa.org / dallasagnostics.org: (August 2012) This board has been retired due to lack of interest / activity. The Yahoo board remains open. You can also find us on Facebook. uctaa.org now brings you to the main web site.
Snail Mail Address: The church relocated from Alberta to British Columbia in mid-September 2010. This means the address on ordination certificates issued prior to the move is no longer be accurate. (This has no impact on the validity of the ordination.) If you need the current postal address (usually to provide to a third party who needs for legal reasons to verify in writing that you are ordained), then request it via the contact form.
Contact / E-mail addresses: We regularly change all Church email addresses as one of our precautions against malicious spam and viruses. To contact us, please use the contact form. If you use an old address, your e-mail will just simply disappear into internet limbo and will remain unseen and unread.
