We’ve switched over to a new web server as of early on November 29, 2010. Everything should work the same as before, only significantly faster than the previous configuration. We hope this will help our readers have a more pleasant experience compared to the repeated slowdowns and service interruptions we’d been seeing with the previous web hosting service provider despite months of trying to resolve the problems there.
If you notice any problems with this change, please let us know as soon as you can. You can email us at [email protected] if there’s anything confidential involved with a web site problem you’re experiencing or leave a reply comment on this posting if not.
We’ve added Google Translate as a feature on our site. Now readers who read better in a language other than English can easily have Google translate the page for them. Simply look down at the new control bar at the bottom of the web page and pick the desired language from the pop up menu on the right side. A control bar will appear on the top of the page showing you that the page has been translated to another language and giving you the option to go back to the original view.
We’ve noticed that some phone and mobile devices, particularly those with small screens running Windows Mobile Internet Explorer, are really clunky at viewing our site and many others, too. If you’ve got a Windows Mobile device, we’ve noticed that Opera Mobile seems to work a lot better in our experience. We’ve done some brief testing using version 8.65 running on a Sprint Touch on a CDMA 3G network and it works reasonably well for viewing our content.
Are you a Gmail user? If so, have you ever noticed the headlines and tips that appear near the top of the Gmail screen? These are obtained from RSS or Atom feeds.

Among the new features we’ve added recently to our web site is a link to Sphere’s related content for each of our blog posts. The link appears at the bottom of each post and looks like this:
Sphere: Related Content
We’ve set that link up for you to see how it would work if you were to click on it from our recent posting More CPSIA News and Blogs. Give it a click to try it out! You can grab the window that appears by the title bar and move it around the browser to make it or something underneath it easier to read.
We hope you’ll find Sphere related content searches a handy way to find more news articles and blog posts related to the information we post on our site.
