More Downtime Today

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Forum Updates 30 November 2010 · 478 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!

Added the Twitter Connect capability to the forum. Now new users can skip the registration rigamarole and just sign right in with their Twitter login on. They're automatically Grasshoppers and can ask questions in the Kitchen and Laundry forums. You can see it on the forum sign in page==> http://appliantology...l&section=login

Note that if you're already logged in, you won't see it.


Outage Fever

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Forum Updates 26 November 2010 · 444 views

Been having brief but increasing frequent bouts of outages. This is especially annoying because I'm paying for premium hosting for this forum for the specific purpose of ensuring reliable uptime. Oh, the bitter disappointment! :rolleyes:

I'll keep limping along and complaining about this to Invision Power Board... for a while. If it keeps up, I'll just give up and revert back to the old forum.

I think it was Sublime Master BrntToast who prophetically cautioned about this move, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." :blush:


Back to Work!

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Forum Updates, Samurai Incarnate 26 November 2010 · 389 views

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving day with family and friends. Lots of people have the day off today but, alas, no such luxury for the Samurai. After a good morning constitutional, it's back to work!

The other night in chat, BrntToast suggested that I start a forum just for tips and tricks on using and getting them most out this forum software since it's new for all the oldtimers here, including yours so freaking truly. Just did that this morning. You may have noticed the new forum category, "Samurai School of Appliantology Student Union."

There's a new forum in there called Orientation for New Students. This is a completely open forum where anyone can start topics and reply to topics on using these forums. So, for example, if you're a lurker here and trying to figure out how to get started, you can ask in the orientation forum without having to register.

Similarly, if you're an existing user of the old forums and are confused about something on these forums, this is the place to ask.

I also moved the Announcements forum to the Samurai School of Appliantology Student Union category 'cuz it seemed to go better there and gives it a little more prominence at the top of the page.
