    Maintenance - 11/28

    I have been doing some routine maintenance today which will almost always result in some slowdowns to the forum. I will also be rebuilding our indexes tonight which will require the forum to be closed to accomplish. I am currently planning on closing the forum at about 10:00pm (Mountain) tonight. We should be down for about 4-5 hours although now that we have over 550,000 posts, it may take a bit longer.

    All of the "all nighters" can get some sleep tonight....

    You guys can always take a peak over at www.TheRallyPoint.org if you get that bored during the downtime.

    Well, I encountered a problem during routine maintenance that will probably make it necessary to delay the downtime until Mark makes a small change to a server configuration. The good news is that this change will probably result in a small performance improvement. Not that we have experienced and performance problems, but I always like to find things to improve.

    If he emails me back soon that the change has been made, I will perform the maintenance tonight, otherwise it will probably be a day or so before I try again.

    Nope, tonight's maintenance is back on; Mark got the change made from a casino in Las Vegas. Sure can't complain about his customer service!

    I'm pretty much a night owl these days: I catnap during the day but I'm up all night long ... guess tonight I'll be fondling the new PPK and watching bad cable movies. That's okay Bumper, I'll survive .............. somehow.

    That's sort of what I was envisioning, Chris

    I have to hand it to the guy, he does take care of business. I'm continually impressed how he runs his business....
