We seem to have survived our last minute server move. Hope the little joke didn't fool too many people. Thanks for your patience while I imported our 46MB SQL file by hand 1 meg at a time. God I HATE phpmyadmin and its tendency to time out on pretty much any SQL file of significance.

OK, venom and bile spent. Enjoy some relative quiet on the new host for a few days before I upgrade our IBF version.

All quiet from my end here.

Some folks spun up two threads, six pages on the "other Nerf site" thinking everything from hackers to Talio gone wild. I guess not everyone got the joke (though the PAGE OFFLINE title should have given it away.)

I imported our 46MB SQL file by hand 1 meg at a time...

I had a similarly challenging day. I partially defoliated our 2.2 acre wooded area by hand, one tree at a time.

You had me. I swear, I thought VACC got wasted and went banning everyone. Then I PM'ed Evil, Boltsniper, Talio, and Nerfmonkey. I thought the server move was the 3rd, as I wasn't able to get on the computer all day for lack of an internet connection. Seeing people online on the homepage also confused me.

You got me good.

Also what gave it away was the year 2032. The year is on the new nerfhaven shirts. Everyone I talked to on AIM was like what the fuck. It was pretty funny.

Ahhh... anyone suspended in the last 11 months gets to come back in 2032. It had nothing to do with the shirts, it was just a suspension notice.

Ompa, my apologies. It was kind of a last minute desperation thing and I was only able to notify the staff who were logged into to AIM at the time I signed in to start the whole mess.

Basically, I wanted to do the move on the 3rd but a number of things prevented me from getting it done that day (or the 4th... or the 5th... or...) so it kind of fell to last night. Our hosting on Lunarpages expires at midnight today and I knew this wouldn't be finished till early in the morning so yesterday was the last day I could do it.

I got all the files uploaded to the new site, created the DB, and did what limited testing I could. Then all that was left to do was lock the forums, export the database, and change our DNS entry to point to the new host. 3 hours of feeding chunks of the SQL file into the new DB, a few tweaks to the config file, and things were working fine on the new host. Magically, DNS finished updating around that time (total of about 5 hours for DNS propagation) which used to take around two days.

All in all it was a pretty uneventful move. We were down from approximately 8:30PM till 1:00 AM PST.

Yeah, I got punked... Bitch.
I first logged on a shit a brick. My first reaction was that I knew not everyone loves me but I'm not that much of an ass hat.

Unfortunately, during the actual move there will be a short period of down time for the forums while I perform the database backup/restore. I'm tentatively planning this migration to take place on Wednesday, August 3rd from 9AM to 3PM PST. Our existing hosting will still be active until the 11th so I'll be able ... read more

That's what gave it away for me. The part about the hosting running out yesterday gave me a small glimmer of hope after I spazzed for 10 min.

All in all, Thank you for not seriously banning me.

I wanted to actually ban everybody and force you all to send me an essay outlining the top 5 reasons we should reinstate you, but kev told me I'd have to read them all....so this works too.

Fastkill has removed himself from the gene pool.

Wow. Pardon me for having a little laugh while staying up until 2AM
moving the forums over to the new host I'm paying $250/year out of my
own pocket for. I'll go remove your account since you won't be using
it.

This email was sent with a pound of MONKEY!!!!

After the HQ hack people are so paranoid now. The board goes down for a couple of seconds or they get an error message and shit goes crazy. "Oh shit it's happened again we've been hacked everyone run for your lives, we're all doomed!!"

Damn, just read the thread at NHQ. It's even worse over there when we're down than it was here last time they were down.

I still wish I could shoot Davis, though.

Even if we WERE hacked, it's not the end of the world. It would suck, but just continue life as normal, people. Shit...

If we were hacked it would mean about a day of down time while I clean things up and a few days worth of posts gone. I keep a full backup of the database on my person as well as on my computer at work.

I'm a sysadmin guys, I do this stuff for a living.

I thought the whole thing was ass funny. I had decided to stay out of it until CX IMed me to say that they I had been blamed for the problem. Not only was I blamed, but it only took three posts. At that point, fueling the fire was all I was interested in. Trust me, it would have gone on longer if I didn't have to be up at 6 this morning for work. The waffle jokes were pissing me off, mainly because it wasn't funny.

On the final note, you guys (and you know who you are) suck. I can't wait until we get to do that again.

Yeah, you had me too. I saw the "server down", but wasn't sure if I was just being banned for general worthlessness... until I realized that the mods here actually have sense. I've been hitting boards like the PA forum where there are so many people they'll ban you for joining a conversation where you're not invited.

I was fooled for about an hour and then realized someone :rolleyes: was just playing with us. I was actually mad but now that everything's back to normal it's funny. Oh yeah, one thing is still bothering me though: why was the suspension notice the same one that Dr.Peach got? Good joke, you got me.

Right on. Anyway I thought it was pretty funny watching the people at Nerf HQ going all crazy and crap like that. Yeah I had a good laugh. Anyway that's all I have to say. I didn't say shit. But that's all I have to say.

*bows before Talio*

That was seriously hilarious...

*cuts wrists in the name of Talio*

Ahhh, what a cliche, viking becomes priest of satan, confused youth sacrifices lambs in the name of said priest, then some bird called "Falcon" shoots the young dipshit and ruins the fun...

Tisk tisk! :rolleyes:

I seriously have to save that whole conversation (excluding Nathan's paranoia and sudden "I can care less" attitude about the rules). And sorry Baggy, but the waffles weren't funny. :unsure:

Also, hate to brag, but I basically confirmed it was a joke with facts, yet everyone continued on like idiots. Said post:

He is fricking switching hosts, don't bug out.

That suspension notification was used on someone recently, so it is either a backup hiccup or a joke.

And Talio is just feeding your paranoia as a joke. Wink

But really guys,

Your mothers suck cock in hell.

And that is when Talio's sexiness brought on the worshipping...

Being I was banned before, for no particular reason I could see, I was kind of curious. Then, after I saw that for some reason I could see that I was able to log on and that the year was off, and checking with 2 other forum members, I realized it was a joke.

Took me about 30 minutes, I'll admit it. I was a bit slow on the uptake. NHQ is hilarious.
