Important Site Information


Recommended Posts

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.

I have over a hundred files to upload that should help quite a bit with search speed and everything else. More ram and allowing more of it for xcache will also help a great deal for most pages. Things that cannot be cached though will really only speed up with the i/o crunch fixed. IE moving from Raid 1 to something striped like raid 10.

DDR3 1866 ECC. Would be a huge help if you had a few sticks laying around.

As an FYI. Cpan on this box was a few versions out of date. When it updates it goes one version at a time so it has basically 2 more full updates to do. While server is updating site will be slow but stable. It will restart apache when it updates PHP, but apache restart should be under a minute. So bad news. Slow site today. Good news. Any downtime should be very brief.

Nah its ecc, it was in our server spares drawer in the LAN room I found 3 more packs of 32GB today. They were for the R710's we no longer have. Have a couple 8 TB drives also but I have to make sure they have no data on them.

      I have owned this amazing vehicle and as I started researching, I found that these cars make great sleeper cars.   No one wants to be taken by a grocery getter. 
      I am starting the build and want to get educated on my car. Vehicle: Grey 92 Volvo 240 Wagon. Engine 2.3L (That's all I know currently)  I have began tearing into the engine as it died on me and has been sitting for about a year now.  Shop said timing belt was busted and wanted 1,800.  I decided to do it myself.  I am mechanically inclined but far from a master mechanic.  Anyways, I welcome any and all advice.  I am going for sleeper, and will update any mods done.  I want it running first.  As you can see the belt is not busted and since the shop wouldn't return my car for almost 8 months, (Whole other story). I hope more issues have not raised.  At almost 200,000 but prior to dying it was running very well.  While I am tearing into it I want to fit it with a turbo. 
      Again I can work on stuff, but tricking out, yeah not my thing so first question would be.....Is this motor able to handle a turbo and will I have to get forged guts?  Can I keep the same fuel rail?  Cam suggestions.......So on.  Thanks and I am new to the group.............

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