As it is round 1 I’ll give them all a free week, but geez there were some dumb calls today.
On the plus side though, how good is Laurie!
The site was down for several hours today but it’s now back.
Yesterday I asked the hosting company to check a few things regarding the site’s SSL certificates (the thing that gives the little green lock at the top of the page). Somehow at around 1pm they did something that caused the site to stop.
Thankyou to those people who emailed me alerting me to the issue. The site now back.
I can’t apologies enough for this
as many of you would have noticed, I’m in the process of moving us across to a new server.
Firstly, I apologies for the down time. Since working on the forum since 2003, my absolute priority is this community and keeping it alive. Any down town is - for me - the worst.
The migration is still going on. It will take a few days.
I hope you understand that there will be downtimes, but never underesitate that I don’t have our 19 years of history as my number one priority.
Especially for TigerGran.
Go the mighty Wests Tigers
As it’s a Bye weekend (yes, I know there are still some games on) I’ve scheduled some maintenance work on our server infrastructure for Friday with our service provider. I expect the site to be down for about 6 hours, however I’ll be aiming to have it done faster than that.
The work is essential and this is the last opportunity to do it before October.
The works are related to the server infrasturcutre itself, not our website, hence why the site needs to go into maintenance mode for a few hours, after which I’ll the site can be safely switched back online and continue as normal.
I’ll keep this thread updated when required.
As you may have noticed, there are some slight differences to the forum today.
Overnight I brought the forum software up to the latest version. I usually do this around this time of year as it’s when we are at our quietest. It’s important to do it each year so that any bug fixes and security holes and get fixed.
Generally there aren’t many new features, although the layout has been tweaked. I’m working to get the mobile sidebar restored.
If you notice anything that doesn’t look right please let me know here.
No doubt there is alot of upside with the kids coming through.
Just look at our nrl team - Laurie, AD, Stefano have been our best performers most of the year. Add in some nice glimpses from Cini, Simpkin, Blore, TT and even Tommy Mac and we have a good base forming. They are performing better than our more experienced players.
I’ve heard this story so many times before……
Means didn’t squat if the ball doesn’t go our way
Great Debut for this young man… If he is not there next week we clearly have something wrong.
over 150m in your first game and could of been 2 tries is an excellent effort. Did not seem rattled and happy to put in anywhere just to win… I still think we need to increase our 1 year extension otter to 2 year as a min as this kid could be out answer for a wing spot moving forward…
This is what gets me about recruitment and retention…we have some very good and classy young players coming up and available…yet they extend Noffa for 4 years after 1 solid outstanding year during covid…
Can you imagine how damn good he would be if he wasn’t a ranga …Turbo MK II
Did you get attacked by a Red King Parrot or something when you were a kid? Or did a red bombshell steal your heart when you where a teenager? Or did you get constantly smashed by rangas when you played?
Which aversion is it? Once identified appropriate therapy can be arranged.
I’m sorry Mike …but if Forum members were being honest with themselves I’d be getting 80 or 90 likes when I bag Rangas …people don’t like them or trust them …they want them separated on an Island
Mother Teresa didn’t even like them
Tell the truth…
You picked on a Ranga at school and got your arse handed to you .
I hope so.
Who invented this stupid term ranga? I hate it. Actually find it abusive.
It was abusive up until you turned 12.
Lots of hot rangas floating around
