Server move today

Postby Jeff Tirey » Tue May 25, 2004 11:55 am

hi everyone, just a quick note that I'll be moving Textkit to a new server today. The move should happen pretty transparently, but if you should spot some oddities - that's why.

thanks,
jeff

I'm odd, but I don't think anyone would notice :lol:

Faster server? More dependable?

To mention it for the heck of it, this site remains one of the most phenominal things on the web. I just wanted to offer up my gratitude; many of us stay appretiatively silent, but you can be sure I'm not the only one who has benefited so greatly; I feel certain that we're all quite grateful to you and everyone else who made this project possible. In the eternal words of Ovid: you rock!

It looks like a few posts got lost in translation.

I did notice that I had to sign in again. Had to recall my password (which is no easy task).

Hi Barrius,

Much more dependable. Have you ever noticed Textkit down? That's because the server would crash and I'm not around to restart it. I'm moving the server so that it can be professionally managed 24/7. Downtime should go almost completely away.

Yes, unfortunately I have noticed a time or two when the server was down. The worst was when you moved!

I haven't learned much Latin - YET - but I have already fell in love with it. I do want to thank you for all that you do - your time, efforts, monies - all are appreciated.

yeah, that was terrible when I moved. Nothing went well because the installation of my cable modem was delayed.

The server is also faster too.
