BIG things are coming to Furtopia!

Yay!!!  I just got Web Watch Dog ported to our new server (WWD is the program that scans users folders and updates our indexes with the date last modified, rating, and several other tools.)

The most critical tasks are now finished.  I will focus tomarrow on user support and then pick up on Web Reports (which I know users are patiently waiting for their stats '<img'> ).

At 6AM I will take the server offline for 5 min to redate the web files.  As you may notice the oldest webpage is only as old as our new server.  This does not show recent updates, etc.  So I will be back dating all webfiles 4 months.  That way as members update other sites that do not update will not come up as green dated.

I also plan on adding an application for a "star" (website award) review.  Normaly reviews are every 4-6 months.  But if someone does a lot of work to their site and wants a review they can let us know about it.

  Keep me informed how things are going! '<img'>

Sorry for the outage folks.  www.furtopia.org will be down for 10 min.  But this gives me the opertunity to fix/finalize some ip/routing issues.  We be back shortly!

Ok we have been back up for a while now.  I back dated the indexes so members who don't update their websites in a month won't stay green flagged for long.

I still have the old Furtopia server up and running.  The only ones left on there is members with hosted TOP level domains.  Those members will get an e-mail explaining about the change over onto our new faster server.

That's it.  From this point I don't anticipate any more interuptions to the service.  The remaining updates/porting can be done with the server online.

Good luck and enjoy!

As far as the radio station we were talking about having a archived downloadable copy.  So people who miss the program can still listen. I will most likely leave the listenable archive copy up for a week till next program.

Let me know if the speed is ever not fast.  I'm running a test right now on bandwidth and the server is under heavier than normal strain.  This is planned to gauge performance and make sure speed stays very good even under heavy bandwidth strain.  

So keep me informed and if anyone notices the site seems slow let me know and the time of day.  Thanks! '<img'>

Ok.. a bug that crept into the porting of Web Watch Dog was doing some screwy things with dates on the server.  I have now fixed the issue.  So as fursons update their website (upload/change a file to their web site) the index will show the correct time at the next load (every 12 hours).

Keep me informed of any bugs you see and I'll squash them!  

Eww.. {looks at icky toes}
