Recent site upgrade
« on: September 28, 2017, 04:13:05 PM »
Over the past 10 days or so there have been a number of attempts to migrate this website to a new server. This process is now complete, I believe and hope. The motivation behind this move was to allow the site to be accessed more securely, using the https: prefix, as discussed at some length in this topic some months ago.

As I said in the earlier discussion, I believe the pressure on all websites to adopt the more secure approach is overkill in the case of recreational sites like this one. Some forumites did not agree. In any case, the Chrome and Firefox browsers have begun to display alarming warnings on sites still using http:, and have said they intend to make these warnings even more obtrusive and alarming in future.

So you can now visit Chihuahua using the address https://chi.lexigame.com/ and prefix the addresses of other pages, including forum pages, with "https://". I'll set things up shortly so that all visits to the site will automatically have that prefix inserted.

Thank you for all your work on making and maintaing this site - you are a GEM. I'm sure all the users greatly appreciate it!

And what would I do without the challenge puzzle when I wake up at 4 AM and can't get back to sleep.

'GEM', being a three-letter word, is not a valid Chihuahua word!  :D

Alan is a PEARL.  ;D

TURQUOISE

Following on from turquoise , here's a few more nine letter words beginning with " T " that I reckon go some way to describing Alan W.

THICKSKIN --- absolute necessity to put up with the likes of me.

TEACHERLY --- always teaches me something

TRUTHIEST --- tells it like it is

TRICKIEST --- quirks in every puzzle

TUTIORIST--- ensures morality is maintained on this site

TREASURED --- we all love him....we all like him.
