    WHooHoo!

    First I want to thank all of you that have already contributed to the new server for SEWA-Darts.com! I really appreciate your support!

    THANKS!

    I have just purchaced our new DEDICATED server!!!!

    I'm REALLY stoked! This system will have it's own dedicated bandwidth (more then 40 times what I have now) and it's very own DELL Poweredge server! NO ONE else will be on the new server! Just us Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

    We are working on the site and will soon transfer it over! I expect to see us running on the new server within 2 to 3 days!

    Whoohoo!
    hehe
    Erik

    That's excellent, Erik, thanks very much!

    Don't know what to say to convey all the appreciation we have for the tons of effort and time you spend on this site. It is amazing all that you do, and the Mods and Admins too.

    Thank you very much.

    Should we treat the site as business as usual, or do we have to be a little cautious about more posts going until the new server is running?

    Faster typing assurred! Ok maybe not! haha

    Actually post away!!! It should be seemless to you Very Happy

    I spent a LONG time discussing the transfer and how it will take place and as soon as the server is finished and burned in (run by itself long enough to know it works etc) we will make a transfer, set up a redirect (of sorts) and then change the site DNS.

    What this means is that when it happens (late at night) if you are on the site you won't even notice it! One time you will be on this host and then you'll change to a new page, post whatever, and you won't realize it but you will be on the new server Very Happy

    The thing you probably WILL notice is suddenly things will speed up!

    We shoudl not have those horrible lag times any more Smile

    Cheers

    hehe I had a drink! Smile Actually I had to pick a fellow from work (from Richmond VA tonight and had him over for a bit -- he's helping with my real job this week -- but it gave me a break from the work of fighting with the servers/hosts/losts posts/ etc for a while....I needed it!

    The site is stabel once again and we can move forward now. I am sorry for the lost PM's and posts. Nothing I can do now since they nuked the database on me...grrrr....it never even occurred to them they might want to save that for me.

    Anyway, I'll get some of the work I did this weekend done over the next few days between work and darts....

    But I did drive my '74 Mini Cooper S tonight Smile Now THAT helps ease the pain! hehe

    I will notice it. Comcast sucks at propagating DNS changes.

    Congrats on the new server though. Very Happy

    Hey wsuxjer, you won't Smile These guys are smarter then that Smile They are going to set a meta refresh so that when you go to the old SEWA server you are automatically sent to the new one via the IP. That way the propogation can take place and do its thing in the background.

    Very smart of them eh?

    Erik, i was curious, when the new server goes up, can you show an archive of the old Dartplayer.net. Maybe as a read only function. I dont know much about software for these boards to even know its possible. Just a question.

    yes.

    In fact it was something I was working on before and will be able to devote more time to after the Bob Anderson tour is over.

    Just got sooo much going on now! Wedding Smile New Server, Bob Tour, darts, etc etc but I can't wait to get the old dartplayer stuff back up and available.

    You're marrying your server?

    Seriously, though. This is fantastic news (both the server and the wedding)!

    Have the wedding in Dallas! Congrats!

    Wedding !!!! Smile Smile Smile Smile

    Umm ... Does the Unicorn Site have one of those pre-registered gift options ?

    You know ... like when the bride picks out a style of dishware and pre-registers it.
