In the coming days or week I hope to uplaod the latest version of software that runs this site. I would venture to say there will be some bugs with it at first as it seems to always work that way. The fuctionality of the site should still be there and allow you to post but please do not wig out on me or the staff if things are diff or not working right, right away.

Thanks

Tim

Somehow I think the "fuctionality of the site" will always be here!! But that's part of it's charm!! ;)

Now that folks are giving up some of their own hard owned cash flow to help support the site and the new server I want to try to keep the most current and best version of software we run on up for the site.

when you are the BEST you have to stay ahead of the curve.

I like the new look at the top of the page by the way.

Not quite sure what is new about it but it looks good!

Well on my computer...all the Yesworld stuff used to be green...now it matches the rest of the main page (blue). Much better :D

That's it! It does look much better.

Funny how you get so used to something that you can't tell when it changes.

OK, well that was FUN! We are back. As you can tell my attempt to upgrade the site went over like a lead balloon. For now everything should be back to normal.

SO SORRY FOR ALL THE PROBLEMS. I was up till 5am today trying to get it back. THIS is why I wanted the server to be with someone else, they are the ones that got us back much sooner then I woudl have if I had to do it all.
The downtime was nothing that the server did to use. Strictly self induced by me!

SO SORRY!

Tim, never underestimate the gratitude fans feel for all your hard work. Remember that when things go wrong.

But please may I ask a question ? Why was a new version of the software needed ? Didn't we already have everything we needed before ? If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Its great the site it back up......

Every time I attempt a server or other software upgrade I just cringe and hold my breath. Thank goodness for backups!

Don't be so hard on yourself. Things don't always go as planned when dealing with server software. I am fortunate in that I usually have a standby machine that I can "practice" on first.

Anyway... good to be back.

Yea the IF IT AINT BROKE.... was on my mind last night. I was pissed at myself. The upgrade fixes some possible bugs (but ours is stable), it also adds some more functionality for members and more ADMIN stuff that makes it much more easy to make changes to the site. For instance, there are things right now that when I add them I have to update EACH style set manually, with the new SW I can do what is called a plug in, a few clicks and it is installed.
Oh well. I shall try again down the line.

Nevermind, stupid cookies again. It's ok now.

Amy
06-11-2006, 03:04 PM
Nevermind again. That lasted about 5 seconds.
It's definitely messed up again. Taking me around 4 tries to get into a thread, which doesn't load completely...and when I refresh, it takes me back to the index like it used to. Only happening today. It was ok last night.

Ames, my guess would be that maybe you have a ton of spyware running, or a virus or something.

Amy

I'm clean on this end She, but I'm not concerned. I just wanted Tim to be aware of it.

Everything's running fine for me.
I see the Yes World banner at the top of the page is back to green again.
