Furtopia Forums Short Outage
« on: February 21, 2004, 05:15:56 pm »
At around Midnight EST Furtopia forums will be taken offline for a short time so that they may be moved to our new server. In addition all remaining sites on cgi.furtopia.org will be moved onto our new home. Users with cgi accounts who use perl will need to note that the "shebang" line (the first line in a CGI) has changed for future updates you make to your site. I will manualy make the changes to existing .cgi's to the proper "shebang" line. Everything should work as before when we come back online except faster.

 Estimated downtime for this move is 30-60 min. Please be patient while we move. We'll be back soon! If anyone has any questions please feel free to ask.

If after the time frame Furtopia forums does not load.  You may need to exit and restart your browser (to refresh the new DNS location).

What's up with the Word Association and word chain topics? I'm getting CGI error messages on them. (Not on any others at this time.)

DB error during the transfer.  It should be fixed now.

They likely sustained some damage since they're such huge threads to begin with, and the import or export process had some trouble in processing the huge chunks of data that it had to work with.
