Thebes retirement progresses

I migrated the server for Background Pi to Thinis recently and shutdown the web server after making the user statistics available on this site. I am not sure yet if I still want to compile the digits of Pi into a file, maybe after some more people run it. It seems to be hit or miss on whether people are; I will try to keep it operation as long as people occasionally do. I know of at least one person that it inspired to go into computing, I would like to think it still has that capability.

I’ve done it. I bit the bullet and switched to Wordpress. After lugging along phpBB for many years now and struggling to keep it up to date, I decided I needed a CMS and after years of trying many and failing repeatedly I finally got Wordpress to an acceptable point. The old site is still available at for now. This new site is powered by Dreamhost, it doesn’t seem the fastest for running wordpress, but my guess is that it isn’t their fault.
