Posted May 29th 2007 - 15:23 by Markus
In the air since a small forever, the structures are finally materializing! The new and mighty Gaudiya Grantha Mandira — better than ever, improvements fabulous beyond description. Please explore to your heart's content, and be sure to get in touch with us with your feedback and generous help!

It all started one dark night in the mid-summer heat of Braj. The webmaster, drowned in life and negligent of the sacred duty, was punished by the gods with a toe that hurt like the sun was never to shine again. "Should this wretch meet his end with the first rays of the sun", he muttered and spent a moment in silence, "afterlife would certainly be gloom if no code were hacked and packed for the electronic temple of books."

mood :: satisfied Code born of pain, fury and fear of gods is clean and free of bugs we feel, yet members! — stay vigilant, lest some low-life gremlin enter and cause byte confusions again. Should something jump off the screen and bite a chunk off your precious nose, be warned that the staff proletariat would not be able to send you pain balm, bandages or financial aid. We do enjoy hearing a good story though, so keep reporting all those incidents.

The core library is fully active and available. The editors are working hard to bring the text meta-data up to date. Many other areas of the site are still being developed. To keep the work going and the Mandir growing, consider supporting our work!

Those new features, you can keep watching the changelog — available from the menu bar and the footer of every page — for the flow of substance into the site framework that now has come to life.
