Big Updates...
so we will be upgrading to vb 3.8 late tonight...:D...finally. there should be a lot more features for people to connect. We are also moving to new hardware. you guys have outgrown the old stuff. for you techies here are the specs on the new hardware. there will be some downtime both for the software upgrade and the hardware upgrade. its going to take a bit for the dns to update across the web.

1 Intel Xeon x3230 quad core (4 cores at 2.67ghz)
6gb of ram
4x drive 320 w/ hardware raid 10 (640gb usable space)

here is a look at the new profiles if you missed it last time.

Cam42 01-08-2009 06:06 PM

So the new version should be up and running tomorrow morning sometime??

Pauler 01-08-2009 06:10 PM

it should be, but again, b/c there will be a change in servers...there could be intermittent down time.

Cam42 01-08-2009 06:11 PM

Okay. awesome.

Pitiful, compared to what I play with at work. :p Should be just fine for this site though.

Good luck on the transition, I hope everything runs smoothly. :drink:

Sounds great. We haven't had a vBulletin upgrade in ages. Thanks, Paul! :)

That looks amazing.

I see rep bars. We got rid of those a while ago. Any way to do that again on the update?

There is a way, yes. It will probably be a few days before stuff like this gets fixed, though.

Woah. Loooots more features to play with now. O_O

I notice the arcade link is gone from the top blue bar now. The little icons in our short profiles alongside our posts saying which said "champion of (whichever games we were)" are gone as well.

I'm totally nitpicking here, but I liked having everything in the post profiles centered rather than left-aligned. :p

Davomann 01-09-2009 04:28 AM

can we get to the arcade anymore?

bravesfan007 01-09-2009 07:31 AM

Obviously I missed the downtime. I haven't got in to experiment with all the features, but give me a little bit of time and I'll get there.

Pauler 01-09-2009 07:55 AM

the downtime is still coming as we have not moved servers yet.

if you have issues with the new version, please post it here.

Looks like the link is gone but it's still out there...and I'm still the KING! :whoa:

Pauler 01-12-2009 03:20 PM

we are in the middle of moving servers...when we are done and we flip over to the new servers, it will take a little while before all the traffic is redirected to the new ip's...thanks for your patience.

Pauler 01-14-2009 04:29 PM

if you can see this message welcome to the new server.

SporkV 01-14-2009 05:52 PM

Ah. Working great for me. Strong work.

Pauler 01-14-2009 10:25 PM

yea...the dns is updating around the world right now, and it will take up to a couple of days for it to update. sorry about that.

SporkV 01-15-2009 08:31 AM

Haven't gotten that error yet today!

And Yeah, Its much faster for me now

Cam42 01-16-2009 01:56 PM
