1. We suffered a brief outage this morning when our host noticed that HTF needed to be moved to a different server due to a hardware failure. That work is now complete. Please post in the feedback area if you have any issues.

    Sorry if there is ready info about this elsewhere, but the search function is down right now, and I was just wondering what the status is on the new server, and if they are going to go back to the other BB software that they experimented with?

    Parker is unavailable for a few days, but from what I know the server is either about to be delivered or is ready to be installed. Parker will be going back to VBulletin (hooray!) but I'm not sure if that will be immediate.
    Like I said, Packy is currently away so nothing much will happen for the next few days.

    Parker had a death in the family this
    past week. He will be back soon.
    I can tell you that the server is ready
    to go, except for RAM that is being sent
    to us slowly via overseas.
    Once we get the RAM we need, we will be ready
    to go.
    Also, don't totally count on V-BULLETIN being
    our choice of software. AV SCIENCE is having
    lots of problems with it right now. It still
    is very unstable software.

    Thank you both for the update, and if Parker stops by this thread, my condolences to you and your family.

    Thanks for the condolences. This has been a very bad year indeed.
    I just got an email a while ago that let me know that the server is in its finally testing stages. As far as vBulletin, well that is another story and until I feel comfortable with moving us over to it we will stick with UBB. I would love to move us over but there are still some issues with vBulletin that have to be ironed out.
    As far as the server goes well.....here is a quote from the guy helping us get it up and running.
    "It is, by the way, easily the fastest machine I've ever seen."
    And this with only 1 of the 2 Gig of RAM we are putting in it.

    Great! Now I can spend my afternoons here... [​IMG]

    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

    Just for a heads up on the server. We are still about a week out. The RAM is still on its way.
    For the numbers they are:
    Dual Pentium 1.26G with 512K cache each, 2G of ECC 133Mhz RAM, 4 18.1G SCSI 10K RPM HDs all hotswap, RAID 5 dual channel with 128M of RAM and battery backup, dual hotswap power supplies running Linux 7.1.
    We are also looking into taking our present server and using it for the database side used for vBulletin. The new box would be used for the web server side. That is still up for review.

    Yep. It appears to be humming along at a load of only .12
    Normally this would be around 5.

    Congratulations, Parker! As stated earlier, the true test will be later when I try to access the SOFTWARE section. My fingers are crossed. [​IMG]
