THE DEAD TIMES

DEAD ARE COMING...

Improvements to The Dead Times

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.

Vimeo videos

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.

Image captions

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 a brand new caption, a caption without any subject

Legality

The hordes of festering undead lawyers have been driven back once and for all, never again to reveal their ugly maggot-prone heads; our home, in this sea of cyber villany that forms the magical Internet, now lies protected within the impenetrable shield of EU law. The EU (European Union) requires that all sites hosted in countries within it - that includes the UK (for the moment) - that make use of cookies, warn the intrepid reader of the fact. Quite why this simple, one-time only warning message that you can't actually do anything with is necessary vexes me without bound - but there you go, I've done it. Take that, lawyer Zombies!

Mobile support

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.
