    Default aussiefrogs moved servers - all is OK now

    Just letting you know we will be moving servers, something we were going to have to do at some stage anyway, but this thought has been expedited greatly with our current host giving 3 days to comply with their requests or be suspended.

    Advertisement


    We owe a lot to our current host & I personally know we would have been off after the crash for a lot longer if it weren't for Powweb (who actually helped me in rebuilding the 2006 database).
    I for one am grateful to them for giving us a temporary home here

    It seems aussiefrogs is just not a quiet lillypad, it is a very busy site again & not suitable for the general hosting packages available.

    As I write this I am transferring our data across to DCSI. I spoke to the techy guy today & we discussed setting up an account to test with. It seems there will be no test now!
    I am hoping they have time tomorrow to facilitate the real deal move over. I'll email the results of tonight & early morning.

    You might recall we have been with DCS Internet before, I think 03 to 05??
    The owner is Mark who some of you know as a French Car enthusiast too.
    They have given us a good deal & auto daily backups!

    See you on the other side.

    Probably better off to switch to Google DNS temporarily... 8.8.8.8 - it is already going to the new server.

    Gib Gib,

    I'm on Optus docsis3 cable in Melbourne.

    The site is now blindingly fast, almost instant page loads and post submissions.

    A very great improvement 13 router hops and 13ms ping! My ping to Optus server is 7ms alone!

    Congrats to all concerned on a smooth changeover DSCI.

    cheers


    Rob

    Good result!

    We won't know about the speed until everyone makes it here. It will probably slow a little at least but hopefully not too much.

    Well done! No delays apparent here.
    Must we have uploads limited to 100k?

    Great changeover - good speed. I'm on AAPT/iiNet and it seems to be working well.

    In retrospect, GoDaddy pulling the plug might have been one of the best things that ever happened.

    G'day,
    I see that Mr GoDaddy is in the bad books again, this time for shooting an elephant.

    p.s.
    I notice that we have lost the 'censored' smilie.

    I am computer illiterate, but following the saga of the current changeover makes me realise that a bloody lot of work and expertise is required in running AF.

    My sincere thanks to gibgib and all who keep the forum going so well.

    An appreciative fento

    Default In the bad news again

    For those that missed the recent 'Gofaddy' events, seems the REMF has little courage to stand up for his convictions.

    I think benhuh created a petition page, but now I can't seem to find it so I guess it was pulled after it got some action

    PS

    Don'y get me wrong, I'm not into digital piracy (I don't have enough bandwidth to be even bothered anyway) but this is just another bad internet censorship law

    Default Go Daddy Officially Opposes SOPA

    From PC World
    For those who believe Go Daddy didn't eat enough humble pie for backing the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), the company's taken further measures to backtrack on on its earlier support of SOPA. Go Daddy's president issued an apology Thursday evening pledging to repair relationships with domain holders who bolted to competitors over the issue and to reiterate its oppostion to the proposed legislation.

    "We have observed a spike in domain name transfers, which are running above normal rates and which we attribute to Go Daddy's prior support for SOPA, which was reversed," Go Daddy CEO Warren Adelman said in a statement delivered to media outlets via email.

    "Go Daddy opposes SOPA because the legislation has not fulfilled its basic requirement to build a consensus among stake-holders in the technology and Internet communities," he added.
