« on: February 12, 2009, 10:57:04 AM »
Things are hopefully back to normal. I will continue to work on setting up a transfer over to a different board system. Stay tuned!

I dunno - I'll kind of miss this forum system...  *Sniff*



Better back up my Mega Man list.

Good idea, though bustin said we should be able to transfer without a problem.  The posts should safely migrate.  At least as long as bustin says so.  Now if it was Inty making that promise, that would be a different story...  >_>



So what did happen yesterday, anyway, bustin?  Was it something to do with GoDaddy all along?  Did they give you any crap for pretending to be me?  :P

The forum software seemed to be having problems connecting with the MySQL server at first (long page load times that eventually returned nothing to the browser), then later I got errors about too many database connections for your user.



Sounds like something was up with the MySQL server.

Yeah, I saw the same thing. I like how there's a .../j/o/n/ folder.



Anyway, I look forward to new forum software. It's about time. And I'm still holding my breath for the main site redesign...

At least bustin98 has proven his reliability in managing the board, so I'm not too worried about moving to another system.

Would the URL still be /forums or would it change to something like /forum or /board or whatever?

Is it really that hard to update your bookmarks?

I'm not asking because of that, I'm asking because I'm just asking.

The directory that the boards reside in can be whatever I choose to name them. Bwa ha ha ha! No, the URL will not change.



As to what happened, I don't know. I don't know if it was a problem with the cron job, or if the forum was bot attacked or what. Not having direct access to the server prevents me from being able to learn more, and I'm sure Godaddy's overpaid techs are too far out of reach for me to ask. But its working so the point is moot (unless it happens again...).



The new boards will be in a test phase. I'll send out some invitations to the regulars to check it out first, if you want. Absolutely voluntary.

And I would like to be user #1.  Or #2 if bustin98 is #1.  >_>

Because it matters so much.
