Downtime

Recommended Posts

I plan to bring the server down for a few hours later on today (Nov 28th 2012). Not 100% sure on time or for how long. I have found a few issues I want to look at and am not sure how long it will take. Goal is under 2 hours. For updates on status check out 30forty50.com. I will make update posts here: http://www.30forty50.com/forum/topic/19910-volvospeed-downtime/

Couple changes.

1. You can block signatures by clicking the X under the rep bar.

2. You can share specific posts by clicking the icon_share.png next to the post number.
3. Next to the quote button in certain forum, there is a "marked solved" option available to the topic starter. This is the equivalent to Yahoo's "Best Answer"

OK, so what gives?

Can't swear any more - doesn't really matter to me since I rarely do, but still pretty significant change

Can't post embedded videos - I know there's a burden on the server but this one is a pain

There's a chance I'm wrong here, but I don't think embedding really adds much to server load. The load is really browser-side. The only extra processing is transforming the link in to a differently tagged link.

Wahhh there's no tool tip on the 'x' for signatures :P

Can I whine and complain and submit an enhancement over meaningless stuff ? :)

(Not directed at anyone, I just deal with stuff like this at work...)

I was trying this out. Got it to clear but how do you get it back?

Edit: Manage Ignore Prefs -> Ignore all Signatures.... ...found it.

      Just an update that the member map is back up. As far as I know all bugs that were reported have also been patched.

      A couple Mods were asking about this for people. 40% off membership winter coupon code is "2016".

      Just looking for some feedback and suggestions. Everything should be running smoother now.

      Sorry about the outage earlier. I was hoping to get lucky and not have to take site down, but updated to php needed an apache up-date and restart. Over the next few days I will be applying all of the updates I have been working on so expect a little site weirdness. If you have any bugs that persist after clearing cache of Volvospeed temp files, feel free to submit a bug report under the support tab at the top. 
      Some of these updates are moving towards upgrades I have planned for this server. I hope to have the site running mirrored on new box within a week or so. New box will be dual e5-1650s for those who care. That should help with server side a good bit, but main bottle neck is still i/o. I saw some black Friday sales pop up on drives and ram. If we can raise a little bit of money we can upgrade the SAS to RAID 10 which should help A LOT, donation link in sidebar. So if we hit our goal that is the plan. If we do not get close I will just throw another 16gb in the machine and increase cache threads. Either way, expect the site to be a lot faster in the next few weeks, and hopefully I have gotten to most of the bugs.
