    Infrastructure Rollout (Phase 1)

    Net Logistics are rolling out many new servers, all configured as DELL Dual Xeon 2.8 - 3.2 Ghz, 4 GB DDR II ECC RAM, 4-6 x 73 GB SCSI in Raid 10.

    The upgrade also includes an IP migration to Net Logistics' own (and new) IP range and the activation of the Uecomm fibre connection.

    There may be up to 15 minutes downtime for most members. Those who use unreasonable ISPs such as BigPond may face trouble with excessive DNS caching by their ISP. My best effort will be made to push for a NAT/Masquerade setup on ChessChat's current IP so that BigPond users will not be affected for up to a week.

    The Chess Chat server is scheduled to be upgraded next Wednesday.

    Site should be loading from the new server now. Tested Hot-Swappable Raid 10 this morning, and it's working just fine.

    Sounds good STML ... noticed the mention of Uecomm ... I'm on ADSL running into Uecomm fibre here myself, so I am wondering if I will notice a slight performance boost (mind you, the site has always been pretty quick for me anyway).

    Another thought, you may recall that I asked regarding browser detection for PDAs and a more plain-vanilla small data transfer i/face some time ago. Something that would be viable when used with GPRS at around $10/MB.

    It was really an idle question, but since I am travelling a lot in the next 3 weeks (country VIC and also QLD) I wondered whether it is ever likely to be on the cards? I will be taking my notebook PC with me anyway, so it doesn't really matter. I don't imagine that there would be a lot of demand for it, hence not much incentive for you to put any time into it.

    Looks like we might have lost some posted messages though. A post of mine from 1:45 AM last night and a Private Message both seem to have gone. Not worth worry about though.

    Would have lost some posts yes, that's due to the time difference between the actual packaging of the account and the time that restores are finished on the new servers and IPs are masqueraded.

    Frosty; I doubt I will find time to do it over the next few weeks, sorry.

    Not a problem at all, "duzzant madder".

    Not PHP - vB.. and I haven't looked at it in a while. Just too busy for the last year now, and likely to be busy till the end of next year. Might find some time to work on chesschat in holidays.

    Hey, a fellow poster has reported when he tries to get onto the site he gets some message he says: 'it brings up some stupid thing saying... please use chesschat.org' or 67.43.11.40 but clicking them returns to the prompt.. he's using dodo - any ideas?

    Sounds like a routing setup problem???

    Will be moving to a Canberra server tonight as we now have servers available there, and it will be quicker for people in Canberra/Sydney/Melbourne.
