Outage Fever

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Forum Updates 26 November 2010 · 408 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 · 356 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.


Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm thankful that the Great Forum Migration went as well as it did. Wasn't easy but it was definitely worth the hassle.

I'll be out all morning, back for a little bit this afternoon and then off to some friends house for Thanksgiving dinner. Back here and online after that.

Hope everyone has a great day with family and friends!

It was a long, tough day yesterday being a keyboard warrior, getting the forums converted to from UltraBB to this new forum software, Invision Power Board. Most stuff came through fine though there are plenty of bugzillas scittering about. If you find one, lemme know and I'll squash it.

Some known problems:

- About 30 to 40 Chief Apprentice Appliantologists (Permapprentices) transferred over as Grasshoppers. If you're one of those, let me know and I'll fix it for you.

- The user titles and groups are handled differently in this forum software. Consequently, longer user titles get truncated in the topic view. Looks kinda weird. Working on it.

- The aspect ratio for some of the avatars are messed up. Not sure why. Should be easy to fix by just re-uploading your avatar.

Some tips:

- Upper RH corner, pull down menu, select My Settings. Poke around in there, tons of stuff to fiddle with. Notably, set your notification preferences for getting updates on topics you've posted in.

- Also skim thru the help file-- link just under your name, upper RH corner-- lots of good tips there.
