    Welcome to the new server!

    Some of you found the way in very quickly indeed!
    There are still a few snags, but all in all it has gone well, thanks to Mike <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>

    Hi Hans

    Actually, I was in very early today but I didn't have time to post then! I was really surprised to see the message about the change but elated that it was successful! And quick! <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>

    We're not a 100% there yet, but hopefully, everything will be fully operational shortly. At the moment, we've managed to fix the most important problems, such as uploading files and even mundane matters like setting the clock right.

    Best of all, as pointed out beforehand, the daily <img src=/S/meltdown.gif border=0 alt=meltdown width=15 height=15> no longer exists <img src=/S/nope.gif border=0 alt=nope width=15 height=15>
    Cheers, Claude.

    Re: Regarding DNS Change for the Lounge

    Wow... I tell ya. Go away for two days (unannounced of course), and come back to a smokin' fast Lounge. Gotta love that Linux guy movin' things back and forth for us <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>.

    I didn't even know the move was happening these past couple of days!

    The speed increase is incredible! There were times during backup of the lounge <I assume that was the problem>, I couldn't even get a page to load! Curious as I am, may I ask what actually caused the improvement? New hardware perhaps? I know I sure appreciate the ability to surf the Lounge at any time of day or night! <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15>

    Re: Regarding DNS Change for the Lounge

    The server we used from the beginning of July 2008 until yesterday was very fast, but for some reason that has never become clear to us, the daily backup took a long time (initially 2 hours, more recently over 3 hours), and it took up so much of the server's CPU capacity that the Lounge slowed down to a crawl. Unfortunately, the backup took place while it was night in Thailand (where its owner lives), which meant that it was during the early evening in the USA.

    We have now moved to a server provided by the Windows Secrets team, and it uses a less intrusive backup arrangement, so we can Lounge 24/24.

    Re: Regarding DNS Change for the Lounge

    Has there been a change from Linux to Windows Server, perhaps? <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    With the disk storage shared between the 'Lounging Server' and a 'Backup Server', maybe?

    It's not Windows. The headers say "Apache/2.0.54ยท(Fedora)."

    Re: Regarding DNS Change for the Lounge

    You don't really think a (mainly) Windows board would run properly on a Windows server did you? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    I'm kidding of course. I'm sure the options have (or will be) explored to provide The Lounge with the best possible solution.

    I call it "interesting" and I am curious to see how it all turns out. Seems there are always rough spots when changes are made but I believe that the "powers-in-charge" will get it all fixed up! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> You'll adjust - eventually! <img src=/S/rofl.gif border=0 alt=rofl width=15 height=15>

    and a Happy New Year to you two, Skittles.
