..that feature at the bottom of this website that told us exactly who was online at any given moment? That was a nice feature because then you could see that you weren't the only loser... um... writer on at like midnight. That there were other losers... um... writers on who either couldn't sleep or had nothing better to do with their lives than hang out here.

Why did they take that away? Now if the place is quiet you wonder if you're the only loser... um... writer online.

I plan for it to come back.

Speaking of which, we'll be going down Sunday morning, approximately 6 am, pacific zone - 9 am, eastern to make the move, and grab the most up to date data. Keep your fingers crossed for us--if it goes well, we should be back up Sunday afternoon or evening.

I'll make a more formal announcement in a little bit, but thought I'd tell you guys, since you're hanging out here. :)

Where are we moving to?

MacAllister
11-24-2006, 08:45 AM
No, no--it's not like before. :) We've got the databases backed up, we've got the new server in place, and we're doing it this way so that we don't lose ANY posts. :)

Breathe deeply. I know it's a little scary.

MacAllister

Ferret, we've got our own, brand spanking new server, plugged in at a co-lo facility.

co-lo?

Is that some sort of secret James Bond like place?

MacAllister

Co-locate. :) Our hardware, their power and pipeline to the internets.

And I've got another question too ... what happened to the thing that when I was stuck for plot development or something it told me what the next paragraph should be?

You've been playing with it too much. Try not sticking foreign objects inside the hole next time.

calculating... so if I stay in bed until noon, get some dinner and then watch a little football before logging on, I should be ok, right?

RIGHT???

And Rob, the 2 am economics lectures are NOT the equivalent of heavy-breathing calls for anyone but you.
