Site Downtime Notice

Recommended Posts

Samurai Appliance Repair Man

Just giving a heads up that the site will be down next Wednesday, November 19, beginning at 10am EST for a scheduled server upgrade. My tech guys are telling me that it will take about 4 to 6 hours to transfer everything over from our existing server to our bright and shiny new server.  While the site is down, you'll see some generic and unfriendly server message. When you see that, remember this message and try again later! :)

 

While the site is down, I'll post status updates to my Twitter feed and our Facebook page -- you should go ahead and follow/like now so you'll have the links to those pages.

Make sure to get your manuals before the scheduled downtime! I know everyone here gets the tech sheet/manual before going on their service call.

It would be a shame to have to be in a pickle and need the tech sheet.

Yeeee haaaaa! Successful server upgrade. They were a little off their time estimation though. Haha. But what matters is we are back in bidness.

Whew! That was a trial by fire! 

 

Yeah, they grossly underestimated the amount of downtime. And still having problems with some of my other sites. But the main one, THIS one, is here and all seems to be working right.

 

It's been a long night and I have a full day of service calls tomorrow.

 

Hope I don't have to do this again for a long, frikkin time!

Just a heads up-- looking around the forum, I noticed that it looks like we did lose some recent content. Some of the more recent posts made yesterday morning just before the upgrade were lost.  For example, Brother Durham and I both replied to Alamo's question in this topic but the replies are gone. 

 

Speed bumps, that's all.  This, too, shall pass. Rock on, mah bruvhas!  :dazzler:  :rocker:

And I spent a lot of time responding to that post... Damn!

I missed my morning coffee responding to that post

I missed my normal morning.... uh... "body routine" responding to that post

I missed my deadline to claim the $25000 I won in the lottery while responding to that post.

Damn you Site Migration! Damn you all to hell!

Well at least we got a nice faster, shiny new site to enjoy... and I hope it kept my.... let me check.... oh no, it's gone!! I uploaded the only version of the "skeleton code" in existence for safekeeping then erased the source... and now it's gone!

That code unlocked the secret diagnostic mode found on every refrigerator made in the last 20 years or so. It even allowed you to get into diagnostic mode on fridges without boards or digital displays. It also provided you with an 85 percent correct repair procedure!... But it's gone...

Maybe I can remember it... ok.. Open and close the fresh food door three times... then open-close the freezer once.... Remove the toe grill and lower the left side support foot by 1 inch, put the grill back on... upside down... I think.... then open fresh food section and turn the light bulb 3 revolutions to the left, 2 revolutions to the right, 1 revolution back to the left then one more to the right..... or was it 4 revolutions to the left then..... no that's not it! Damn!

Damn you site-migration, Damn you all to hell!

I'm noticing a, more than usual, number of duplicate posts. Is that a result of the upgrade or just a few people not patient enough to only click the submit button once.

Brother Durham mentioned that as well. In the past, this was caused by a delay when posting s reply or topic. I was tracking that bug down last night. Did you notice any delay when you posted a reply to this topic?

Just to update my own post: I posted my reply from iPhone using the mobile theme and the post was about instant. I'll try in full theme and then create a new topic to see how that does.

I noticed a reply I made earlier for a wolf service manual request disappeared right after I made the reply, He/She asked for an R364 service manual and I was only able to locate it by the document number.

Bummer!  I knew we lost a post or two and that one may have been another casualty of the upgrade. But the good news is that we shouldn't need to upgrade or migrate again for a loooong, loooong time. We have enough hardware running this site now that we could handle every appliance tech in the country even if they all logged in at the same time!

This was just this afternoon, here's the download I linked to. He/She couldn't find the manual so I found it and linked to it, the post just disappeared.
