Hello Toasters, it is great to be back… we have missed you all – well, most of you anyway. First of all we would just like to apologise for our sudden disappearance without any notice but everything suddenly fell into place for us to do the upgrades that have been overdue for some time. The more observant of you may notice that we have split Jammy Toast in half too. Here on jammytoast.com we are only now hosting posts from September 2015 onwards. The plan is to create another site which will become an archive for all our old post prior to that date right back to when we started in June 2006.

Why have we split Jammy Toast in half?

Every time WordPress, MySQL or PHP is updated, we have to check over 4,500 posts to make sure there are no problems. If we don’t upgrade then we miss out on the advantages of new technologies and our site becomes degraded and runs more slowly. So basically we are stuck between a rock and a hard place. Put simply, we are buggered if we upgrade and buggered if we don’t. We decided the best answer to this problem is to split the site where only the newer posts would need to be checked after an update and we can let the site hosting the older, archive posts continue without installing only the absolutely necessary upgrades. This obviously results in less boring maintenance work for us and doesn’t ruin the Jammy Toast experience for you.

What are WordPress, MySQL and PHP?

WordPress is a content management system – put simply; a program – that presents all our posts and allows you to search through it. It provides the interface for you to read our posts. MySQL is a SQL Database which stores all our data and hosts queries of that data. PHP is like the programming language that everything runs on. So if there are any geeks out there who are interested, Jammy Toast is now running on WordPress version 5.3, PHP version 7.3 and MySQL version 5.7. It is also running on a pretty modern version of Apache too but luckily our web host provider takes care of that – thankfully.

But I have missed my Garfield and Bear Cartoons!

We have brought the Cartoon Archives up to date; until the end of this month. You can catch up on the cartoons you have missed over the last couple of days there. You can access them from the Art & Toons menu above, or simply click here for Garfield and click here for Bear.

So anyway, the good news is that we are back and also any future maintenance work should be able to be completed on the fly, without taking Jammy Toast offline.

Finally, a big thank you to Edward Bear for helping me with all the upgrades, he is an absolute godsend. While the other bears are staying up all night watching cricket from New Zealand, Edward has been helping me and providing some sterling work into the process – what a legend!

Thank you, Edward.

  1. What were the RAF Jets going to do if that plane had remained unresponsive? Shoot it down? Can’t see the point in waking me up with a sonic boom for nothing. Make sure your fucking equipment works please Boeing.

  2. Most of the leaves have come off the trees now. E.T. and Red Fred are sitting near the fig tree which still has a few leaves left. In the summer it gives a lot of shade and E.T. loves to sleep underneath it. Figs are strange things, aren’t they?

  3. He picked a fir-cone up, and looked at it, and said to himself, “This is a very good fir-cone, and something ought to rhyme to it… Here is a myst’ry about a little fir-tree. Owl says it’s his tree, and Kangaroo says it’s her tree.”

  4. I’ve just round the block to get something from the shop without taking the dog with me. Ive come back and he won’t even look at me now. Hes sulking hahahaha

  5. Woke up this morning checked my texts and couldn’t even read them, just deleted every single one, there was 10 of them to one person without a reply and each paragraph was at LEAST 13 lines long. Hormonal drunk women ain’t shit.

  6. I invited me ma here today cos she promised me a Christmas tree and to make this place look all Christmassy for me. I’ve made her dinner and everything but no sign of her. I rang her and she’s bladdered in Manny airport on her way to Budapest… sensational slag behaviour.

    1. My bf bought me a promise ring and I wanted to sell it when I was dumped and heartbroken. It went missing from my room and when my mom came to visit me last week she was wearing it. “He was a proper drip but it’s a shame to get rid of such a nice ring,” she said.
