Newsletter for July 9, 2012 - 100 Days of Summer Slumber
1. Newsletter Editorial
Hello dear readers and greetings from Illinois, where I've been hiding out in my air conditioned bunker while the temperature outside breaks the triple digits. It's been nearly 100 days since the last DonationCoder newsletter, so this is going to be a big one. I apologize that it's taken so long to get this one out, and I promise it won't take so long to get out the next one. The last time we talked we were just kicking off our March fundraiser, which turned out to be a wonderful success. A huge thank you goes out to everyone who donated and cheered us on. The fundraisers have such an invigorating effect on the site -- I can't overstate the morale boost they provide. Thank you all.
On other news, we've been very steadily working on the transition to a new content management system for the website, which will make it a little easier for us to update and maintain content. DC member Mitzevo is leading the project and the new site layout looks great. Unfortunately, it's proving a not insignificant challenge that we have so many different esoteric areas of the website, so we still have quite a ways to go -- but that's the nature of the site so what can you do? Ok enough rambling, onto the newsletter sections!
