THE FORUMS ARE NOT BEING SHUTDOWN PERMANENTLY


With that said, let me explain what is going to happen.


I will be shutting the forums down so that I can begin backing up the database, uploaded files, scripts, etc, so that they can be easily restored once the server has been formatted and has its operating system reloaded.

Once the forums have been shut down, they will not be back up until after the operating system has been reloaded and reconfigured. I will likely be ordering the OS reload on Friday or Saturday and then reconfiguring the server once it comes back up. I hope to INTL back up and running smoothly again by Monday, but it may be as last as Wednesday or Thursday of next week. Hopefully sooner though.

Basically, once the server has been formatted and brought back up, I will be reinstalling MySQL, PHP, and Apache, then restoring the file structure and files for the website and bringing it back up. Shouldn't take too terribly long to do, but there are usually hiccups that happen that can't really be anticipated. No files will be lost, no data will be lost. I am going to be trying my best to make this as smooth as I possibly can to minimize downtime, but I'm only one person, so lets face it, there's going to be some problems.

Once the forums come back up, I'm going to need you guys to seriously help me out as far as identifying any and all problems you encounter. For example, if you can't upload files or thumbnails don't show up in the gallery. Shit like that.



Anyway, I'm going to wrap this up by saying that this is only going to cost $25 to do, there is no $150/hour administration involved, because I will be doing all the administration myself (i.e. installing apache, mysql, php, etc).

When I first read this, the word "Not" did not immediately register. What I read was:

THE FORUMS ARE BEING SHUT DOWN PERMANENTLY

I guess scares like that are good for the circulation. Thanks for doing all this work for us ungreatful bastard forrumers. As soon as I get my paycheck for the work I'm doing between now and the end of the summer, you'll get a donation.

Bye internets!

I'm just glad they're coming back up.
Realize that falling in love with someone is just the results of a series of generic events that can occur between you and basically anyone who meets your standards of attractiveness. It's just an emotional manifestation of a handfull of chemicals bouncing back and forth. It's not the holy grail of living, it's not your reason to exist and it's definitely not something reserved for "that one person". Accept that you are just an animal with a big brain that allows him to fret over what only amounts to a game of hormone pool. What you're feeling is not your soul dying a gurgling, ugly death, but withdrawal. All the happy chemicals that saturated your body when you were with her are kicking out cold turkey, and your body is screaming bloody murder, where are my fucking endorphins? It's just chocolate. Find a new bar.

My heart literally dropped into my stomach when I read the thread title, but then I felt reassured when I saw the bolded text.

I still love the INTL (more than Amphy)! *licks screen*

Doesn't the manatee kind of look like a guest on the Ricki Lake show? "Uh, Ricki, I'm here because I'm endangered." Then one of those mean people in the audience would offer up the advice, "Yeah, I want to say something to the sea pig!" "That's sea cow." "Whatever. Sea pig, you gotta get yourself an education and a job!" "Uh, I live in the ocean." "It just so happens you live in the ocean 'cuz you ain't got no job!" "I don't know what you're -" "You gotta get in Weight Watchers, some kinda program!" "I have a layer of blubber to keep my body warm in the water..." "Whatever, talk to the hand." "I dont have a hand!"

I assume that in addition to the forums, the other subdomains will also go offline?

Yes, the ENTIRE server will go down. I will be backing all the subdomains up though, so don't worry about that. I will do all the footwork to get them all restored to a working condition as fast as I can. First priority though is to get the message board up. Then I can work on the subdomains afterwards.
