Summary of the appliance repair search arsenal and capabilities available to you at Appliantology.org

search, site search, google


And as anyone who's spent any time searching this site knows, there's gold in them thar old topics!


That's why it's important to remember to use the site's google search box as well as the standard box. The google box will search and find older stuff as well as newer entries. But the wild card search parameters "*" doesn't work for numbers (this is a google shortcoming probably done to prevent their servers from bogging down searching for all occurences of jpt4* in an alpha string then billions of results if included in a numerical or alpha numerical string)

The main Appliantolgy search box will respect the wild card "*" for alpha-numerical searches but the searches are limited to entries made in the last year or so.

The move-in process continues. I spent most of the evening getting emoticons uploaded and activated. Now when you post, you'll see taksan more emotes to chose from. Still have a few faves that didn't make it but they're coming. Didn't think it'd be that much of a PITA to get emotes done. I love Invision Power Board software but emote management is the one area I've found that could use some sprucing up.

Currently working on getting the Gallery and Downloads sections set up. These can be powerful features to the site. I'm soliciting ideas on how these sections can be most effectively used so if you have any inspiration, please share the love. :rolleyes:


I Blinked and Missed the Server Migration!

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Forum Updates 30 November 2010 · 524 views

That had to be the most seamless server migration I ever didn't participate in! Been having stability problems with the server that hosted this forum (RE: my last post) and complained to my host who are the same people that wrote this forum software: Invision Power Board. Yeah, I figured have the forum hosted by folks who would know the optimum server configuration to run their software.

While that may in fact be true, the reality in my case was a bit different. Another site on the server kept getting slammed with denial of service attacks which would cause this site to hang and not load in the browser.

So, after a firmly but nicely worded complaint, they told me they would move Appliantology.org to a different server. I was expecting to be posting updates on Twitter but it was done so quickly that I never had a chance to. An utterly painless and seamless server migration. Them dudes at Invision Power Board are good!

Anyway, we're on a different server now so hopefully the nuisance downtime is history.


More Downtime Today

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Forum Updates 30 November 2010 · 448 views

Yet more downtime today on the server that runs this site. That makes the 8th time this week alone for over an hour and half of downtime. My host tells me that the server running my site has been the victim of several denial of service attacks. Must be another site on this server that draws all the hostiles like flies to a turd. Well, that turd is stinking me out!

My host has offered to move me to another server which I eagerly accepted. The move will happen sometime in the next 24 hours, they estimate about 15 minutes of downtime. I'll do updates during the migration on Twitter: @FixitnowSamurai.


Now Facebook integration

Just like with Twitter integration where you can sign in with Twitter, now you can do the same thing with Facebook. Just makin' it all kinda easy to get into The School and learn how to git stuff fixed!
