Site Transfer

Postby Aldus Marius on Tue Feb 23, 2010 6:52 am

Avete omnes,

We're moving the site to another Web host this week. The URL will still be the same [ http://www.societasviaromana.net ], but we might be down for a day or two, as even after everything's been transferred to the new server it usually takes the rest of the 'Net a day or two to catch up with the change.

See everyone on the flip side,
Aldus Marius Peregrinus.

Avete iterum,

The transfer's looking more like it's going to happen next week (or so) rather than this week. I had to get me some Tech Support. >({|;-)

Stay tuned...

Ave(te?) iterum,

Setup complete. Transferring today or tomorrow.

I'll be closing the Board to new registrations until it's complete. I might just lock it down, period, as anything posted in the next few days will likely be lost.

Alright - per Marius's nudge, I am at the BB3 preview page on the new server.

It looks just the same! Well, it is the same. Same software, same content.


:party: :party: :party:

I'll do a bit more nosing around here....

    And then head home from work....

Salve, Marii -

Still getting that warning:

    You have been permanently banned from this board.
    Please contact the Board Administrator for more information.
    A ban has been issued on your IP address.
as of 1pm, 3/11/2010 2763.

But that's the only prob. And the whole board comes up faster, if I'm not mistaken!

Salve, mi Iohanne, and Salvete to all you other involuntary exiles who have gotten the same message:

I get the same thing, but I can still log in via the "Login" link at the top of the error page. The important thing is, nobody's actually been banned. So hit that "Login" link and come join the conversation! And if it absolutely will not let you on...wire marius_peregrine (at) yahoo (dot) com; I don't know what's going on either, but I do need to know if it's doing that, and you'll get the chance to vent.

Salvete omnes beta-testers,

PEBKAC.

"Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair." My keyboard. My chair. Marius Screwed Up.

Octavius informs me that the site's been live on the new server for two days. Which means the societasviaromana.net.previewdns.com addy is obsolete. Has been since the file transfer. I never should have directed you there in the first place. The REAL Board is at http://societasviaromana.net/phpBB3 , which is on the new server and is well-behaved.

Oops.

I'm going to go bang my forehead on my desk now...

Enjoy the new Forum! >({(:#)

World Wide What?

Postby Aldus Marius on Tue Mar 23, 2010 9:52 am

Salvete omnes!

Frequently Asked Question: Are we
"societasviaromana.net" now, or "www.societasviaromana.net"?

Either addy works. It's the same site, same URL, just on a different server. On the back end, we had to tell the look-it-up servers where "[www.]societasviaromana.net" is stored these days: "Mel mea, did you move the salt shaker?" "Ita, from the kitchen counter to the table." But getting there from the front end is the same as it ever was..welll, at least since we became a dot-net, going on four years ago.

So, ladies and gentlemen: Twenty paces, fire up your browsers, and wire when ready! >({|:-)

In fide,
Aldus Marius Peregrinus.

Salvete, Omnes -

I stand corrected - again! I del'd my earlier post which offered a bit of spurious advice on the SVR's domain name and accessing the site in its new incarnation.

:oops: :)

Thanks, Marii.

URLier, it was said...

Salve, mi Iohanne!

And I have edited mine so that it's no longer an orphan answer to an unposted question. >({|;-)

Salve, Marii - Totally tangential: Had I mentioned that I like that new avatar of yours? It's a real treat for the eye.

Vale, Peregrine.

Mari's New Avvie

Postby Aldus Marius on Sun Mar 28, 2010 9:08 pm

Salve, mi Iohanne, and Thank You! I was wondering when someone would comment on it. I do like my Pokémon, and Absol's my favorite. He's got enough of the Wolf about him...but a certain felinicity too; and the myth surrounding him carries a certain resonance for me. Called "the Disaster Pokémon", he is the guardian messenger who, unfortunately, is often mistaken for the disaster itself. Nobody likes to see an Absol, but we'd be in a bigger world of hurt without him.

(I like Riolu too [tough little guy], but he's a bit too cutesie-poo to represent me here.) >({|;-)

In amicitia,
Aldus Marius Peregrinus.
