At the Chinese restaurant doesn't that just mean you want your order to go? Wink Wink

Thanks for keeping on going. It's such a great site that it would be a shame to loose you.
You make otr worth while.
Good luck with the new servers.
Nigel.

Welcome to the other side Nigelc!

Please don't be so silent!

I'm sure that you know we are always looking for new input and don;t ever think that you don't have anything new to add.

There are so many different ways to be included!

I got two unusual errors today. One during an ftp upload, and one while replying to a post. Hopefully it's nothing but if there are problems, I'll have things set up asap.

[ edit ] There is also very very heavy traffic at the moment... which means either some sort of attack, or you people better turn off your download managaers for an evening. Thanks.

Okay, maybe "imminent" wasn't the most accurate word I could have chosen. However, change is still in order and so it will come. I know that despite one noted exception, the server and forum have been behaving themselves for the past week or so. But what about next week or next month? I've had nothing but problems on this server since mid-last-summer and so enough is enough. I had planned to make the change back at the beginning of December but encountered yet more problems with the new host I intended to use. Fortunately, we caught the trouble before the switch was made and so avoided any undue panic.

This time around I was able to do advance testing - largely due to the generous use of the donation button in January, and I already have the Vic and Sade sites up and working on the new server. Not to get technical on you or anything, but suffice to say I'm liking the way the new guys are set up and run their shop.

All that remains now is to make the switch-over official. I should think sometime Sunday night in the wee hours will give adequate notice for the change (especially since it's been looming over our heads for nearly two months now) and will be a slow enough time traffic-wise as to cause the least likelihood of lost posts or inconvenience.




otrplus.com


Like when this began, no logins will be lost. But until the switch is 'official' (late Sunday/early Monday) any posts at the otrplus.com address will be over-written by whatever happens here (otr@154) between times.

Whew!

Okay Phineus,

If you had to guess how much down time (if any) do you think will be involved with this change over?

I can see that you already copied an image for testing purposes. I guess that is what you meant.

Anyway looking forward to the change; which from what you've said can only be better!

Will there be any warning? With me on layoff at the moment I do some of my best browsing in the wee hours of the day.

Ten minutes, tops. (I hope, hehe) - I'm shooting for sixty seconds.

> I can see that you already copied an image

Actually, the whole forum until around noon or something is there.

> the change; can only be better!

Actually, there is always the possibility of going from the frying pan into the fire, but I hope not in this case. If that were in fact to happen, we can always move everything back here (while it lasts) or to an alternate (I have a couple). But, having regained control of the domain name (a first for me) you wouldn't even notice.

> Will there be any warning?

Yes, see the post above yours.

> I do some of my best browsing in the wee hours

To gauaranty no confusion or cross posting, I guess what I should do is disable this, make the switch and re-enable everything when it's ready. So in that case you'll see a "maintenance" note.

Phineus,

I was just over at the new address and noticed that Oldster has joined up over there.

Well is it possible to add him to the list here so he doesn't get wiped when you make the move?

I'm afraid I won't be doing that. It has been clear around here for two months what the plan was and open communication hasn't been lacking. I did, however, post a follow up to one of his notes updating him on the scene and suggesting he save his text for after the swtich. I hope he sees it.

For what it's worth, I did a dry run last night and start to finish the switch took under two minutes. Shouldn't be any problems later tonight. So, tomorrow morning we will officially be "otrplus.com"
