Donation - New Server

Post by keveh » Tue Jun 18, 2013 12:21 pm

After numerous issues with the site it will be moving to a new server tomorrow.

There will be downtime in the morning so make sure you get all your posts in tonight! It shouldn't take too long, it might be down for a couple of hours.

Everything should be the same, but I'll create a thread in the Site Development forum for people to report issues.

Is this a cost?

Do we need to chip in?

There is an increase in cost and people have kindly already offered a donation over in the thread in Site Development.

I want to get it up and running first, then if people are happy I'll set up a PayPal donation. All you offers are very much appreciated.

Also, you will probably be required to log in again once the change happens, so if you don't know your password, change it now!

If folk have difficulty remembering the multitude of passwords with all the different rules websites have. Try Lastpass. Tis free. You only need to remember the password for Lastpass and it will remember all your logins for you. You can set it to automatically login for individual sites. Very flexible.

I don't own shares or owt. Just find it useful for myself.

So we are now on the new server, hopefully this should be faster and also be a hell of a lot more reliable!

Bruce, thought you'd agree to keep that quiet?!

If people aren't experiencing issues, does the site seem faster for you?

It seems to be faster than a fast thing. Does this mean we'll get promoted and are you going to want some of my beer money. 8)

Sluggish in Wales.
