Server upgrade..
« on: November 19, 2010, 09:06:43 AM »
..was mentioned in the newsletter; it should be done now.  Be on the lookout for strange things happening to yell at me about.  A couple things:
Don't be alarmed if you sometimes see numbers instead of mortalmist.com in the address bar of your browser.  This is just temporary until everything is synced up.  Relatedly, occasionally you'll get something about sessions when you post, asking you to try again.  That should stop soon too.  Sorry for the inconvenience everyone.  :)

What hasn't been visible up front has been the past week or more of over-the-top effort almost exclusively by mu to make this transition as transparent and non-interruptive as possible.  And he came through magnificently.

We set up the new operating system on a temporary server, got all the bugs worked out while taking notes, then transferred over there yesterday morning.  mu worked through the night getting the original server set back up after the new operating system was installed. . . and here we are!

The last time I tried this on my own we were down for almost a full day, and didn't have mail service for two days after that.

So bravo and THANK YOU mu!!!!!
What truly matters is not built of right and wrong; but of grace, and of love.

Yup, lots of work has been going on to make the change to the upgrade go as smoothly as possible, and they pulled it off nicely.  Many thanks to both of you. :)

...it was done and you didn't tell me?!?

 :yes:

Awesome job mu... what did you do again?  ;)

Consider that a compliment! Ninja tech skills. With matrix 1s and 0s. And stuff.

Seriously very excited about this. Thanks very much.
