We've been on this Supermicro server for 10 years, time for something new.
In the decade we've been colocated in Portland, VPS services have come down in price and it just doesn't make sense for us to have a physical server any longer. So, after 10 years, we're shutting this one off prior to our September 1 bill and moving over to 1&1 hosted linux services.
You shouldn't see any difference if we've sized this properly ... so who knows
Sometime this week we will pull the trigger and stop the board on this host and move the new one online. Once we make the switch it will be obvious if you are on the old or new box, we'll make it clear.
What day are y'all not here? ("EVERY day") Yeah, but
I mean, in the old days, we'd just know which days didn't have wrestling, but (1) there's a show on EVERY day now and (2) we don't actually talk about (or, for some of us, watch) most of the shows anyway, let's be honest
What we'll prrrrrrrobably do is shut things down some night, change over the DNS AFTER ensuring the database came up on the new place and is working, switch off the lights here (well, put up a message saying "you shouldn't be seeing this, but sucks to be you for hopefully no more than 24 hours") and you just end up THERE.
There is a tiny chance you may have to log in again, so if you haven't entered your password for a few years, think about visiting your Edit Profile page and changing it. (In a perfect world, your cookies will still get you in at the new place, but I'm pretty got danged sure the world isn't perfect these days.)
I replied to Stagger's post about Neil Simon and got an error about "protecting me from malicious code" but the post got posted somehow anyway. If I get the error again replying to this, I'll screenshot it and send it to you.
Originally posted by CRZWell, for some reason the zeitgeist doesn't seem to be showing up on the front page, but everything else seeeeeeeeems to be working. Let us know you're here and please report any other wonkiness!
I have been getting a test pattern instead of the zeitgeist for quite a long time and attributed it to the work site blocking it.
I will have to do more testing. At home, connected to my wi-fi, it worked as expected. When I was on 3G in a food court at the mall, it wasn't working. I have more errands tomorrow, I'll look at the time-stamp when I mark it read.
