My family was over, so I was stuck playing a buggy game of TF2 in front of young children who had very, very loud voices.

Replace "TF2" with "Peggle Deluxe" and it applies to me.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Peggle has a multiplayer mode?

Not with, on front of.

But yes, it does have multiplayer. Not online though. You take turns.

Glad the server move went well, for some reason my avatar was x'd out but it's resolved now, but just as a q does anyone know why? ??? But it's not an urgent q anyway.
Kid: Oh wow I'm being deflowered by a grown woman!
Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

Actually the server move failed again.

Well, the problem is that I have to take down the site for a few hours to do the move. So I can do it late at night, like a Saturday night, but they don't have exactly the "best" people working that late at night.

Or I can move it during the week, where they have better people working, but I'll have to take down the server in the middle of the day in the middle of the week.

I'm going to call the hosting company and speak to them to see if they can get this done once and for all ... correctly.

Yeah, you ain't gonna lose anyone if you do it when it's convenient for you, you know. If doing it during the week guarantees it'll be over and done with, go ahead and do it. At this point if I were in your shoes i'd be pretty fustrated with them, i'd just want them to get it done already.

I think you should do it when you can get the best results.

We're big boys, we can handle a day without the site I'm sure... ... ... :-\

Besides, I'm sure there would be more people on the forums on a Saturday night rather then a mid-Wednesday anyway.

Please, please, please.. don't get upset... Steve is having big problems related to this move. He's doing the best he can to fix things. He's asked to let you know that he has a plan and working on it.

Quote from: Steve by email
Okay here is the deal…
I moved over the forum from the old server to the new one and everything was looking great. The new server was working great and was SUPER fast – definitely worth the upgrade.

So I was trying to fix the SMF database posting error you guys were getting, and then it broke the database. And it just got worse and worse and worse.

So instead of trying to spend days with the server down and no forum while the database was fixed I decided to just go back to the old server. So we’re back to where we were a few hours ago.

I know this is a pain, and I know you guys can’t be happy. So here is the plan:

I have been on the phone with my hosting company for about two hours now. We’re going to carefully transfer the older server to the new one, test it all out using a new method (hard to explain, but this is going to allow me to test the forums like they are working now), and then once the new server is working 100% I’m going to transfer just the forum.

I know, I know. Trust me, I almost had a heart attack when the forum went down. But I was able to get it back up and working, and it will only be moved over once it’s working and not before. And I don’t plan to do this for several days, so I’ll give everyone notice when it happens.

So sorry everyone… You can’t imagine how much sleep I’ve lost over this…

Hey, it ain't Steve's fault. No-one's getting mad at him. It's just you'd think someone providing a service would do it as intended...
