Re: Server upgrade, April 2019

Not a bad idea, but unfortunately no option for me. As I don't own the complete server but only a segment, I can't keep the older PHP but am forced to follow my host's policy. Good news: The last 6 hours I had a look at TerranBBS' template files and rebuilding their template will be far easier than ...

Re: Check-in Thread #96: Almost Spring Version

Good afternoon! Sorry about the cryptical test message - I was just about to edit it when I got a timeout. So far there is no clear pattern to the timeouts. I'm still at a loss what might cause them and therefore I can't say when they'll end. If they persist after Easter I shall contact the techniti...

Re: Infirmary Thread #16: LOL Is The Best Rx

Sounds like a pollen allergy. Couldn't you wash his paws and face when he gets in from the garden? Removing the allergenes might at least dampen the symptoms a little.

Re: Check-in Thread #96: Almost Spring Version

happy wednesday, in spite of all timeouts. So far I encountered only one timeout, this morning at 6 am CET / midnight EST / 9 pm PST which lasted about half an hour. I did some work on the server yesterday between 5 and 6 pm CET / 11-12 am EST / 8-9 am PST and the server reacted as fast as always. P...

Re: The Weather: The Coming of Spring.

we still have very cold nights with only 3-4°C but the days are already nicely warm (18°C today) as long as there is no wind. One of my region's specialties is an icy wind from the east. It comes directly from Siberia and even in summer you may need a thick sweater on a day with "Bohemian Wind". It ...

At least I didn't have to go out sampling on Monday, just yesterday and today. No ice cream but a delicious apple pie with walnuts. Pure coincid...

Re: Server upgrade, April 2019

These timeouts appear to happen always at the same time. Let's note them down - maybe we can trick the server and find a window when the board is guaranteed to work

I had timeouts between high noon and 12:40 pm EST today

Re: Server upgrade, April 2019

I'm afraid these errors will continue for a while. As far as I could see yesterday, the server currently runs two different versions of PHP simultaneousely. Every customer is supposed to switch their own server segment to the new version as soon as they adapted their software (which I did yesterday)...

Re: Server upgrade, April 2019

5 mins ago we switched to the new PHP version. So far it looks rarther good.
TerranBBS had a bug immediately before the switch. As I have not the faintest idea where exactly the problem lies, it is possible that the board will be offline for several weeks. Please spread the word.

Re: Check-in Thread #96: Almost Spring Version

good morning :) We switched to DST last night. Fortunately an end is in sight: we'll abolish that nonsense in 2 years. This new time is most irritating! I feel like morning, my clock says it's almost 12 o' clock and I haven't had either breakfast yet nor did I work on the boards. And there's the qui...

Re: Server upgrade, April 2019

Thanks :) 5 of 7 boards have been upgraded. Only TerranBBS and Renext are left. Unexpectedly, there occurred a problem with TerranArchive's template. It runs the same as TerranBBS and after the upgrade that one doesn't work anymore. I'll have to rebuild it from scratch. A similar problem might possi...

Re: I ate an Emoji for Dinner!

I had a variation of saltimbocca: thin pork slices topped with fresh sage leaves and smoked ham, in a lemon sauce. My sage has grown like crazy during the winter and I pruned a lot of the older branches.

Server upgrade, April 2019

It seems that the board-wide mailing system doesn't work properly, hence I better let you know via announcement about what's going on atm. Last week my host notified me that they will switch to a higher PHP-version in April. That means our server will get a new operating system. It is similar to swi...

Re: The Weather: The Coming of Spring.

a rather cold and beautifully starry night and a lovely sunny day today :)
The next 3 days will be cold but dry and from Thursday on it gets warmer again. Only during the day - the nights stay around freezing point.
At least I'll have nice weather when I go out sampling on Thursday =)

Re: Check-in Thread #96: Almost Spring Version

Good evening :hello:
is it just me or do these weekends get shorter all the time? I had planned to see the toy exhibition at the local museum but promptly missed it again. Ah well, maybe next Friday.
