The TTC and Metblogs Missing Visual Editor

I heard on the radio today that, starting in June, subway service will end 1.5 hours earlier — at 12:30 am instead of 2:00 am — because the maintenance staff cannot maintain the system in only 3 hours per night when the system is shut down. Poor dears. I wonder how the tough maintenance guys in New York manage to keep that system safe when it never shuts down? But seriously, how come over 40 years after the system opened, and over a decade after the major accident, do the maintenance guys suddenly decide they can’t hack it? Is management hoping to cut back on staff, or are the staff becoming so slow and lazy now, they’re less productive than ever?

So much for improving TTC service.


On a totally unrelated note, what happened to the nice Visual Editor for Metblogs? I absolutely HATE writing with code cluttering up all my text. I bet it’s the fault of those people who insist on using Safari, a browser that seems to hate WordPress. Booo. Hissss.

[Update: I suddenly had the brilliant idea of strolling through the admin options and lo and behold, they’ve added a new one — “use Visual Editor” — but the default is NO. Fixed it. I’m happy now.]

    The good news is that the repairs are being done at night time, as opposed to during the day, which would slow everyone down. The bad news is that it’s happening during the springtime, when it should have been done during the winter.

    jinei, that’s one way of putting it!

    ultimatetoronto, I hadn’t thought of the tourist angle and how the numbers will be higher during off-peak hours because of all the visiting going on. Yes, winter would’ve been better.

    I saw on the television that it’s the Yonge line only and different sections being done on different dates, with shuttle bus service replacing the trains.
