Site Update

Okay, the time has finally come to make the second of our recent server moves, which will hopefully clear up the script issues we've experienced for the last month or so since the previous move. I need to thank John at UGO for helping make this all work, but more importantly Frans, who has again sacrificed his time to work through a lot of the issues associated with all this, and for putting up with my being an utter monkey about a lot of technical stuff, which certainly didn't make the process any easier. We don't anticipate issues resulting from the move, but if there are any, hopefully they will clear up over the next 24-48 hours as the DNS propagates. Thanks for whatever patience you have had for the problems this has caused using the site lately.

Are we there yet?

Are we there now?

How much longer?

Thanks to Blue, and Frans for their work/dedication to the site over the years, as the internet would be a dull place without them.

I did notice one thing (we shall see if it's still there) -- posting a message results in a blank BN page with no content in the body.
Yes I noticed that too, let's see if it's fixed after a little tweak.

Edit: Yup, looks good.

I don't think nin meant giving others that power. And Blue has had ban power for a long time, but chose not to use it most of the time and deal with abusers another way.

I can respect him trying not to create a culture where people are getting banned but there are several examples (no I'm not going to name names, everyone probably knows anyway) where I think the ban hammer would've been more than reasonable. His site, his choice of course, just sayin'.

The DNS switch has been propagating for a while, and nothing seems to have blown up so far (knock on wood), so no Last Post for you.

Still there. bluesnews.com resolves to 216.105.160.130 for me.

When all you have is a banhammer, everyone starts to look like a troll.
I think you just summed nin up in one sentence
 
A message of hope to those who choose to hear it,

Oh no, nin has been pleading for access to the banhammer for a long time now.


But it's so shiny...just begging to be used! Precious! My Precious!

He can just never give certain people *cough*nin*cough* the power of the banhammer, in case they go crazy with it

I for one welcome our new server overlords, and as a loyal fan of the site over many years would like to remind them that I can be of much use in rounding up other gamers for the PC gaming surge that will happen soon(er or later).

Keep going Blue and crew, you've one of the best sites on the net!

edit: missed an r.

Yes please! Though I suspect that would be far too major a change.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.

And here I was thinking when the site was down that you guys had been downloading too much circus midget porn again.

If there are suggestions which (small) improvements can be made, I might be able to work them in after the move. But I'm afraid this will never become a full-featured board like pbpBB or VBulletin, the existing codebase (derived from Chatbear back in 2001) seems too primitive for that.

I think I was hoping for something closer to the latter...
