Here's the Server Story
« on: October 09, 2011, 11:50:49 AM »
I'm still waiting on the last $400...and that should hit Paypal today. I'll get the new server ordered tomorrow...it will be ready for us probably Wednesday. We have to copy everything from this server to that one, which will take a few hours. Need to get all of the right software installed on it as well, which can happen as soon as we get access to it.

Later in the week, we should be able to switch over to it. During the migration time, it takes a little while for all of the DNS servers on the internet to update and route traffic to the new server. Since we don't want people posting in two different places during that time, we'll take the board down here. I'll put instructions up on how to force your computer to go to the new server so hopefully downtime will be minimal for most.

Should be up and running on it a week from today.

Can our Admin change the thread title to Austin Allen's Cock?  If so, then put me down for 10 inches, at least.

I thought he sent out an email to members...said something about giving your bank account info to Woopig's contact in Nigeria. Should only take about 5 minutes.

OK, good. I gave him like $500 then. So glad it wasn't a scam like my stupid wife said.

Silly, she says that to me in person almost every night.

But seriously, how can I donate.


Send a PM to Elvishog or LRhogfan.  They will tell you what you can do.

The new server has been purchased and work will begin on getting it all set up today/tonight at some point.  There will be a few times when the board has to be thrown into maintenance mode to grab files, so simmer down there pattycakes, it'll be back up when its up.

Nice work Verotik....

http://72.167.55.110/

The server was provisioned way faster than we thought it would be. LRHogFan took care of getting it purchased and everything this afternoon...and Verotik has been working away to get it ready.

Me? I've been slaving at my desk at my new real job all day. No time for fun stuff like this.   :-\

If you want to contribute...just paypal something to payments@woopig.net. It's running a tad higher than we planned....but we're getting a way better server.

If I kill Tulsahawg, will it make the server more efficient?

Once in Yamsylvania, we had the potato famine. Which did not upset us because, hey, we eat only yams! Then we realized it is better to starve on potatoes than eat yams. We became so poor we had to raise monkeys for their fur. OK, we raised them for their pleasant smell and many tasty parasites. The kids today, tell them about parasite stew, and they look at you like you're some kind of nutty man, crazed from yam poisoning.

No, but if you had a stroke it couldn't hurt.

I've got the new server up and running, but its a little ways off from switching over.
