      Hello troops.

      Jackpine Radicals is going to a new hosting server.

      This SHOULD mean that all those pesky 500 and 404 errors disappear.

      And the site SHOULD load up and run in seconds, not days like it is right now.

      But this is costing us a fortune, and we may need your help soon on being able to afford these luxuries.

      So, there is going to be a loss of the site temporarily beginning THIS Sunday morning, though since we are migrating us to a new dedicated server we will have to do the usual new DNS point to the new fixed IP address and JPR will not be able to be accessed until that change migrates through the DNS system.

      Of course, all of this is dependent on my wonderful son, @deadpool , being able to oversee the total pro we hired to set us up for the site you should have. (That was the agreement we made with the hired gun. He gotta give us what our members want as far as the hosting thingy goes. Deadpool is responsible for the actual site thingy.)

      So boys and girls, get ready for a new JPR (as far as hosting goes) after a short stint migrating the new IP in the DNS starting Sunday morning.

      I tried the poll but got a 500 error.

      There should be another option on the poll.

      ALL of the above.

        Are you kidding? I already fired them suckers up to warp speed on this one.

        We have 4 cores running 3.4 GHz all to our lonesome selves. Not sharing anything on that side of things.

        Site should fly. If not I’m gonna be real pissed off at a hired gun.

      P.S. What does Sunday morning mean? 1:00 AM and vicinity? or 6:00AM to noon vicinity?

        Well, not quite.

        IF everything goes as planned the site will be migrated up-to-date at 7 am Eastern. That’s cause the hired gun no like midnight work and ‘Pool said O-K for the 7 am take off.

        So, the ‘Under Construction’ sign goes up at about 7 am (pending getting the hosting site prepped which is ongoing as I type this) and you will have to wait till the migration happens (probably an hour or two at the least) and the site is checked out.

        HOWEVER.

        All of that is moot. You gonna lose DNS to get to the new dedicated IP address until IT migrates thru the DNS system. Took me about twenty hours for that to occur for my lowly internet provider to notice the last time.

        SO, look at losing us for about a day. No way around it. If you change IP for a domain, you have to wait till the change to the new IP address worms its way along the DNS food chain.

          If you could post the new IP address, then we would not need to wait for the DNS to catch up. It was stated the IP address was dedicated. Using the IP address should solve the problem of the wait.

          Edited to add: An additional way, besides the IP address, is to add a redirect from the old site to new site when it becomes active. The DNS up date will take care of the rest.

          What’s DNS? Never mind, I remembered Dubya and used the google or whatever non-Google googler that I have. Down for a day, huh? Well, if it’s up by 6 Eastern I’ll have Trivia to test the speed of things.

      Depending on my seeing positive results first, ducats will follow. I love JPR but there is that one member, goes by the name of “500 error” or somesuch, that guy has got to go! My therapist may have to up my meds thanks to that a-hole! Just a suggestion, why can’t we get “500 error” an honorary membership over at SV?

      Here’s hoping the new hamsters will have a better work ethic. I’ll toss in some high protein pellets to help build those leg muscles.

      Cool about the update and all – but much better to see you posting, old man!  You’ve been missed (or maybe I didnt see earlier posts). In any event, damn good to see you about, mad scientist. 😉

      Woo-hoo!!!  Thanks to you, Deadpool, et al. for all your hard work on this!!!

      I know how hard it is to make devices & software work and talk to each other.

      Destruction is easy; creation is hard, but more interesting.

      In celebration of this, be SURE to listen to the Tim Black (Freedom Friday livestream show) that was on TONIGHT. I was the second caller and Tim did a BIG shout out to JPR!!!!!!!!

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...
