Well done.

The page kept appearing and disappearing yesterday (presumably flaky DNS propogation and interesting attempts at routing).

Seem stable now though.  :-*

Yesterday there was some major problems with the internet backbone, amongst a few other things, which caused problems for a whole bunch of users.  I would say, only around 60% of people who tried to connect yesterday, did so with any luck, others where hit with a 404 page. (I was struck with 404 unless i used proxy)

Anyhow, all seems fine and dandy with the internet as of now, and everything is back to 100% (or as close as they can ever get to it lol)

I just ran across this link elsewhere on the forums, and since I see some sort of placeholder page, I assume the server migration might not have transfered that one properly. It might be nice to fix it. (it is the NANY page for 2007, the inaugural year.)

Just a quick update:

Thanks to Gothi[c] and XDebug, we have conclusively identified the problem with the slow posting, and it should be fixed now.

The first clue was what i did myself to improve it, which was remove some custom code that was emailing each new post for archiving.

The connection i dind't make is that when people subscribe for notifications on a thread, this also causes emails to be generated when some threads are posted on, which made posting on those threads slow.

I'll post again as soon as we have the emailing speeds fixed and things should be superfast then.

you guys are nuts. looks like i found another forum to roam. id make a donation but its the end of the month and it would prompt evil messages from the blue meanies that run the walmart reloadable cards saying things like "dont spend that last 3$, we need your monthly maintainance fee son"

yes theres only 4$ on the card now---but at least theres no interest :Thmbsup:

ill catch ya after rent......

i came to snatch video, and do other such nonsense- maybe learn some codeing and get to a point where i actually like opensource......right now im a windoze purebred--never ran anything until xpsp3--dnot know dos from sod-like my gui- so how can you help me bust and snatch hidden .flv codes?

by the way, nice forum, congrats on the now over a month old server--just got a new one for my website back in november myself.

of wit, i have some, of wisdom, not as much, but then theres the idea....!  :tellme:
