    New Server?

    "Thanks to the wizardry of Mike Wolfman and Claude Almer, and an able assist from Seth Bareiss, AskWoody is back, better than before. Better? Yes, the Lounge is now on the AskWoody server. We've cranked it all up a bit to make your Lounging experience a little, uh, less leisurely. Your old links should work, and everything appears to be going gangbusters.
    It'll still take a little while for Khunwoody.com to come back on stream, and I'm having a Real Fun Time (tm) getting email going again, but by and large it went pretty well.
    Stay tuned. I'll get back to posting shortly."

    I think there's a bit of confusion. Stay tuned for updated news.

    Guy: Not a skerrick.
    I posted in case it were true, so that we would have a milestone against which to measure improvements.

    Hans: Thanks, I see your response.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Claude on 25-Jun-08 19:59. Correction: by "we have indeed" I meant to say that "Mike has indeed....")</P>Hi Chris,

    we have indeed been working almost around the clock over the past few days to get all the web sites onto a new server, a server which will house askwoody, khunwody etc as well as wopr. AFAIK, the migration is comp[lete for all but wopr . Wopr is a beast in its own class and can't be moved willy-nilly, it requires making the old lounge read-only until all the DNS changes have propagated.

    We will let everybody know when we are ready for that move, albeit soon I hope.
    Cheers, Claude.

    From what I can now see, askwoody is now resolving to Dallas, I'm guessing wopr will follow soon, which is great.

    how long will you have this read only for?

    As short as possible. We'll post an announcement before it will happen.

    Thanks to one and all. We're almost over the hump-hump-hump-hump.

    Oooops. I guess there are still a few giltches...

    Seriously, it's been a stellar effort by some fantastic people.

    >how long will you have this read only for?

    wopr will be set to read only once the new server is up and running and thoroughly tested. When we're happy with the test results, we'll instigate a DNS change and set the old wopr permanently to R/O. As soon as your ISP has picked up the new location of the lounge, you'll be able to visit it (even if you don't realize there's been a change) and proceed as normal.

    We will change the latest "Words from On High" message on the old and new servers so you'll be able to tell if you've followed us or are still left behind, so to speak <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>. It generally takes 24 to 48 hours for the DNS change to propagate worldwide.
    Cheers, Claude.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Bob, 10 minutes ago, it was OK, but now as you say it appears to have changed!

    GACK!

    Ah, the ignominy of it all.

    There seems to be a bit of a problem going in and changing my signature. Hang on....
