Improbable Island Message of the Day (MoTD)
July Monthly Memento, migration process
Hello everyone, it's July now and that means we've got a new Monthly Memento (newbies note, this is a special item that you get for giving me a tenner). This month's MM is the Attic Hatch!
Remember the May Emergency MotD
? Yup, that's still going on, I'm still rummaging around the Dark And Ancient parts of the game code in preparation for making it not bork in PHP8, I've still got a September deadline, and so this month's Monthly Memento is a trip into those dark and dusty places. You can use the Attic Hatch once a day to ascend into Improbable Island's Weird Technical And Social History and return with a horrible souvenir of a worse and weirder time.
What will you find? The vast expanse of beige we all put up with until Covid lockdown? Ill-advised status-based text replacements? The disastrous way that a Bush/Blair-era codebase handled gender pronouns? Who knows, but there's still enough left to do that August's MM will probably be a sequel to this one.
