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.
yeah, pretty dumb stuff from him today, though he wasn’t alone
I’m in London - anyone know if you can connect to a TV via HDMI cable?
On-demand replays make it v v tempting (bit tricky for the 4am kick-offs!)
London here too mate
The app is fantastic.
I hook it up to my TV and watch high quality games live or on-demand replays
Thankyou @jirskyr for your unique insights and comments.
I love reading behind-the-scenes and factual info like that.
An update from over here:
12.6million vaccinated so far
They have now vaccinated over 90% of people aged 75 and approaching similar numbers with as the age decreases.
Clinically vulnerable people are being vaccinated now too, my mate who has bad diabetes got his shot last week. Hats off the UK government, they are ahead of schedule here and it’s clearly working!
