Site Update

Hi all,

So it looks like everything works with Wordpress, the extremely popular open-source blogging system that I have adapted to work with Amarna’s site. I encourage all Amarnites, past and present, to “Register” for a new account via the link on the right hand side. Please enter your new usernames in the following format, just so I know that you’re not a spam-bot:

<First Name><Last Initial><two digit class year>

So, mine would be davids08 (can you find me on the list?). Trust me when I say that I respect that you’ve had the same online alias since using Mosaic in 1993, but I need to honor this convention because if any single malicious entity gets into the site again, I need to close it down and redo it all over. Again.

Don’t forget, we’re actually going to try to update the site somewhat frequently this time around, so subscribe to our RSS feed with your favorite online/offline feed reader (Outlook, Thunderbird, Google Reader, Netvibes, iGoogle, etc. etc.). Also, we’ll be sending out a newsletter to registered users just like before, so sign up for an account today!

Just as a small sample: we’ll be having our termly retreat the week after next, from Feb. 29th to Mar. 1st. Any and all alums are welcome to come and if you’re thinking of joining Amarna, retreat is the perfect place.

Amarna’s New Website

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately, dear friends, the old Amarna website system was apparently hacked and hijacked and had to be taken down immediately. I will be doing my best to recreate everything in this new system, but I have to build it from scratch, so it will take a while. You can contact me via the Amarna blitz with any questions.
