State of the site address

By December 1, 2010Site-news

This is our new server. We’re still with the Planet (now Softlayer) and physically located to Seattle (yay all you west coasters).

I’m still in the process of uploading everything which will take most of the day. The gallery, video and forum should be up by tomorrow. Gallery, video and forum is now up, enjoy!

Unfortunately it’s still 8 month old. We tried everything short of having experts doing a forensic reconstruction for thousands of dollars, but we just don’t have that budget here.

We come out of this with a bit more respect for proper backup schedules. And a bit less respect for mankind ’cause honestly.. that wasn’t funny.

    Hello new server.

  • spoonbat says:

    Kris — have you thought about setting up a fund for the reconstruction? I could donate some. It might take a few months but I think we could raise enough money to get it done.

  • dazza says:

    a) we couldn’t raise that much
    b) there wouldn’t even be any guarantees that we could get the data back
    c) its just not worth it

  • spoonbat says:

    Does a few grand mean 2-3k or more like 7-8k?

    Does Stellar Phoenix work on servers? that program recovers stuff even from reformatted drives. as long as that part of the physical disk hasn’t been written over by say these words here or natalie’s pix 🙂

  • dazza says:

    The problem is the linux OS. Trust me, a couple really smart guys looked at the problem and said “no dice”.

    I would keep it though…you never know!

  • jesslv74 says:

    Yay! Just saw the gallery and it’s awesome! You still have a lot of great photos from the last few months. It was a bit slow to load a few photos at times, and it took me a bit to get to the comment here, so there are probably still a few bugs to work out on your new server?

    Hey Dazza,who is that cute baby that appears in the images section?Not Natalie for certain,but cute nevertheless.

  • dazza says:

    The only baby that could be in the image section is Natalie.

    The server is experiencing slowdowns every now and then. Kris said its because the coding format used for most of the site is ideal for linux but now winwdows. Now that we’re on windows…not so good. But he’s gonna sort it out…in time.

  • rockla says:

    Yeah, there’s a random baby pic in the images section. I’m about 99% sure it’s not Natalie, seeing as it’s a boy…

  • dazza says:

    Got a link?

  • Till says:

    my offer (on facebook, about two weeks ago) to submit the lost pictures to you is still standing.

  • dazza says:

    Thanks Till. Drop me an email and I’ll speak to Rach and see where things stand. Did you save fanart as well? I’m going to need those when it comes to The Charlies awards thing next month.
