View Full Version : Welcome back! The Server Move is Complete!

The server move is complete. We are now on a high speed cloud server which will scale up as we need the resources. We'll see how it goes, but theoretically this means no more game day outages, and plenty of resources to accommodate everyone.

Just imagine how glorious the meltdowns will be when nobody is shut out, and everyone can access the "post a new thread" button at once.

PS. You may experience temporary outages as the domain propagates over the next 24 hours.

Sweet. People are starting to trickle back in. This is good news. It means that everything went according to plan (nearly, there were a few hitches I didn't expect but managed to iron out in the back end).

Incredible Tebow could rebuild our temple in just one day. "First Jesus" needed three.

Either the new server is really fast, or there's nobody here yet.

Thing seem to be loading much faster.


I still think that we can crash this server with a major Tebow event. Maybe if he gets arrested while having sex with six Broncos cheerleaders...

Only if there are pictures of said event.

-Thanks for your time and efforts!

Thank God the server was just being updated!!! I had no idea what was going on. My whole world was in shambles. I wonder if thats what it felt like to be from Cleveland.

Taco John

I can't even begin to say how relieved I am over this move going off so smoothly. Our last server cut me off a week before I had thought they would, but aside from that, it feels good to be on this side of the issue. I'm looking forward to making the software upgrades to lead us into the next season.

The real test will come when Tebow gets his first action. And I'm not talking about lady action, though that would probably be a traffic booster too.

server is busy... try later messages this year.

Now if I can just keep my net access working (cable problems)

Says right here on Change avatar picture page:

Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 300 by 300 pixels or 97.7 KB (whichever is smaller).

Taco thanks for taking the leap to the new server I know it probably costs some coin and I for one appreciate it!

That's a good idea. I should give the mods a bonus priviledge of having a larger avatar for the work they do here.

Ok. I'll do a version update to the software to bring us up to speed with the 3.x software this weekend and see if this solves our problem. I remember we had an issue similar to this several years ago. I'll have to check my logs to see how I fixed it then.

Sorry about the problems fellas. Luckily, it's an intermittant error as some people are able to start threads.

The way I got around it was to make a test thread, then edit the thread. I think the hang up (for me) was the thread title.

You sticking with 3.8.x (they just released 3.8.6 a few days ago). I'm waiting for the first site I follow to take the plunge to 4.0 and see how people like it. I had wanted to do it before the season starts, but I'm not sure it's worth it.

I'm only upgrading this instance to 3.8.x. I have a 4.0.5 test board running right now, and have plans to make the jump in the near future.

There always are. Always. No matter how well you plan, how many things you try to account for there is ALWAYS something.
