I need to transfer everything from my old (crappy) host to the new one, and this will take some time. At least one day will be required to get it done, and then I can change the name servers, which will take anywhere from 1 – 3 days to propagate.

I had hoped to get this ball rolling over the weekend, but my wife is in the last few weeks of pregnancy, and we had to do some things to get ready for our next house guest. []

Anyhoo, I’m going to make this quick like pulling off a band-aid. Sometime today, the board will be closed and the transfer begun. Check back in a day or three and we should be back up.

After this mess is over, I’m going to continue my investigation of converting the message board to something database-based. UBB Classic is dead, and the size of our city has made the latest version of the software creak like das boot. Thankfully, UBB was popular and there are many choices for conversion out there.

Hang tough!

OK, that wasn't so bad, now was it?

As if I have to say it, if you notice anything out of the ordinary or not working, let me know right away. There might be some speed issues until the caches catch up, but in general we should see better performance than before.

Back to my conversion research...

Are you posting from the future? 6:01 PM hasn't happened yet if this board is still in US Central time. [] May want to adjust that.

Time Test...

OK, semi-important...

Be sure to adjust your time adjustment setting in your profile (if you want to see the correct post time, that is).

Is the "recent post" feature supposed to only show posts posted after the host change?

Great! Back sooner than I'd hoped. Thanks!!

Is anyone else having a problem with edited times? My original posting time was 3 hours off as WGW warned us about, so I adjusted my time in my profile and my time synched up to my current time, but when I edited a post my edit time is 3 hours into the future! I only found the one time to modify in my profile, so can anyone help me? I feel rather [] , being an IT analyst and all... []

edit for a visual of my problem

edit2: How are you doing on funds, oh Steward? I'd hate to see you putting out your own mullah when collectively some of us can assist with no pain.

The edit time always used to run differently from the post time and couldn't be changed.

Then you are in US Central time, Pi. Edit times have always been expressed in server time, nothing anyone has ever been able to do about it.

So it does follow that when your edit times used to be in sync with post times expressed in your own zone time, and your post times were now out of sync with your own zone time by three hours on the new host, after bringing your post times in sync with your own zone time again, edit times are now 3 hours out of sync in the other direction.

Yep, you must be in US Central Iime.

It's 11 hours behind me. New York is 14 hours behind. The UK is 9 hours behind.

So... somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean? [] []
