Over the past few weeks I have been working tirelessly to upgrade the site, taking it's functionality beyond that imbued upon it by its earthly upbringing. I will continue to do so as I re-vamp (Vampire puns too - sometimes I even amaze myself with my talent) in order to bring you the best, juiciest, most brain-droolingly awesome Zombie website that the pre-apocalypse world has ever known. Four major changes have come to fruition, four technological curses have been lifted, granting access to code treasures kept secret. Each is listed below, every item more sinister than the one before it.
The most minor of Voodoo hexes has been smashed to allow Vimeo videos to be hosted on the Videos page, previously only YouTube clips could be embedded into those hallowed halls of non-existence.
One of the many differences between the living and the dead is that those still alive are blessed with wit. I have made The Dead Times able to understand these whimsical thoughts, allowing them to be applied to images in the form of captions. Many will be funny, some will invoke fiendishly clever puns, all will involve words - see for yourself in this snappy example.

This is something I've been begging myself for since the site's creation, way back in 2013 - you can now access The Dead Times on the smallest of screens and everything should work as well as it does when the site is viewed from a desktop - it'll look a bit different and some non-essential information will not be visible due to the restricted screen space but the main functions are still there. Please contact me using the Contact page if you find any holes or broken sections - we must not let the dead ones in or we are all doomed! There is still more work to do to ensure complete domination over all mobile devices - this is a long process that will take time to finish. Consider a ruthless horde of Zombies; theirs legs have been removed on the initial pass, leaving them crawling along the floor, harmless to the wary clean-up crew that follows but not yet entirely dispatched.
In this brief article, I document some of the major changes that have come to this incredible website in the past weeks.
