Polishing, Tinkering, Purging

May 28, 2011

This year we have oodles of plans to take Godchecker into new and invigorating dimensions. (Did someone say the word ‘app’?)

To help make this all happen, we’ve been extraordinarily busy behind the scenes tinkering and polishing the Holy Code. You’ll notice a few tweaks here and there – hopefully nice ones that don’t break your browser into little pieces. Most importantly of all we are actively updating the Database of All Known Gods, correcting mistakes, fixing glitches and purging unsightly pustules wherever we find them.

To get things going, we’ve just updated the entire African Mythology section. Several erroneous entries have been zapped and many little errors have been fixed. Work continues, so if you find any mistakes please let us know.

And don’t forget you can give us instant feedback via Twitter or Facebook.


Pope Idol or the Hawking and Dawkins Show?

October 3, 2010

These days we have the X Factor Competition between the Omnipotence of POPE IDOL and the HAWKING & DAWKINS BIG BANG SHOW.

The Good Old Gods tried and tested from time immemorial suffer sadly from neglect.

The Christian and Atheist Cultures have ignored or are disinclined to believe in two of the fundamentals of Human Faith : a sense of humour and a right to choose.

Beliefs should come in a wide variety and you should be able to pick what suits you rather than having opinions forced upon you. When selecting from the God Market you should be able to exchange or get refunds on faulty deities or worships that don’t work. Think of our modest volume as a catalogue. You should also go for special offers. Try one and get one Free – or Three for the Price of One.

Finally we have it on good authority that many of our Gods do not believe the the existence of Richard Dawkins, Scientology or humans unable to notice sunsets.
As for a God who thinks he is the One and Only – how is he ever going to cope with democracy?

Godchecker the Third

June 21, 2010

Today, on the very pinnacle of the Summer Solstice, we unleash the brand new Godchecker site on an unsuspecting interweb.

This is the third major version of Godchecker since we began back in 1999. The first version was embarrassingly primitive, but the second was quite clever for its time, even sporting pseudo Web 2.0 features – before Web 2.0 was even invented.

It’s been our aim to revamp the site for a while. A lot has changed since the last upgrade. Gone are the days of browser wars and incompatibility hell; now there are such things as widescreen monitors, iPads and CSS3. What a wonderful thing is technology. We thank all the Gods for inventing it.

Please let us know what you think of the new look site. We will be adding more bits and pieces over the next few weeks, so your feedback will really help us. If there’s anything you love or hate, let us know!

KludgeFlash: Godchecker 2010 site upgrades

May 19, 2010

We are planning to brush away some of the site’s cobwebs and apply a little paint here and there in order to tug Godchecker into this dazzling new decade. With gleaming twitters and shiny facebooks springing up everywhere, we feel the Gods are looking a little dusty.

Our team of dedicated boffins have been working behind the scenery to bring you a cleaner, better, juicier Godchecker.com.  With much head-scratching and scrutinising of the Mysterious Clay Tablets of KLUDGE, their tireless labors have crept a tiny distance closer to the utter perfection of HTML NIRVANA and CSS HEAVEN.

While this spring cleaning session continues, we crave your patience and humbly ask that any glitches or issues you may discover while cruising the Godchecker site are reported to us via twitter or email.
