A New Server Approaches!

SpindleyQ's picture

So, heads-up: I'm planning to move Glorious Trainwrecks Dot Com either this afternoon or tomorrow sometime. I've done some work to make sure this transition is smooth, but probably there will be weird problems anyway. The new server will be accessible at a different URL for a period of a few hours while everyone's DNS catches up (thankfully I've thought ahead so that it won't take days, this time).

This is the thread where you will complain about those problems, and/or rejoice that you will soon have a better than 50% chance at actually being able to access the site when you feel like it.

Also, I'm totally going to run a gopher server. (Make sure you scroll to the bottom of that page for a peek at the FUTURE OF CYBERSPACE with TurboGopher VR.)

OK, we're moved. Start bitchin'!

EDIT: OK, obviously you all can login, so I can take those raw email addresses off the internet now.

It's so fast I thought that the page wasn't loading properly.

We rebuilt the wreck, now let's run it off the rails at top speed.

Debugging a funny caching issue where sometimes submitting a form doesn't seem to "take". If you click a button and nothing appears to happen, try holding shift and hitting refresh.

It looks like this might be a Firefox bug? Ugh.

I just disabled the Skype plugin and the problem went away. Jesus fuck, Skype, what is wrong with you.

I tried to login in Firefox a few times before reading this thread (I'm now using IE 6). It says I'm online four times at once. Oops

Do you have the Skype plugin installed? My Firefox problems have completely vanished now that I've disabled it.

It looks like I bungled the DNS transition, so we'll be stuck using new.glorioustrainwrecks.com for a couple of days. ARGH. I set up my old server to transparently redirect www.glorioustrainwrecks.com to new.glorioustrainwrecks.com, which has the nice side effect of making the links in the Klik of the Month Klub wiki work.

I think I just got the brunt of the storm. I created an account just now, and I was unable to login until I sent myself a password retrieval email. I'm in now, but unfortunately I'm now in Who's Online five times. I would log out, but I'm afraid to do so because I might not be able to get back in.

Anyways, hi.

Edit: Seems to have corrected itself.

Hello, and welcome! Sorry for the turmoil. Are you going to hit up the Klik of the Month Klub on Saturday?

I'm used to playing Mafia Wars while I keep refreshing the page until it loads. Now that it works properly, how will I ever build up my mafia?!

OK guys, if you can read

OK guys, if you can read this, your DNS has switched over and we can all go back to using www.glorioustrainwrecks.com again. I can't think of any reason why it wouldn't have by now, but if it hasn't, you're kind of boned.

Well, I got to work this

Well, I got to work this morning and I was boned, so I guess we're back to using new again for now? I hate this shit.

EDIT! So apparently it will take up to TWO WEEKS for my Linode nameservers to become authoritative, instead of two days like I'd thought. I had thought that it wasn't worth updating hcoop's information, but apparently I was very wrong. So now that I've fixed that, it will take another couple of days before all of the names are finally really pointed at Linode and we can all switch back to using www.glorioustrainwrecks.com. BLAHHHH. Sorry for the mess, everybody.
