New Server 2012.11.06

Postby Ruroshin » Tue Nov 06, 2012 8:49 am

So our server went down in flames a few days ago and our effort to resurrect it was unsuccessful.

I got new servers and have restored back from the latest backup that I have which was on 2012.11.02.

If there are torrents missing you will have to re-add them.

Thanks to all those that informed me via email (I don't check PM anymore) and special thanks to MoerkJ for putting the hard yards to try and resurrect the forum when it was down. Thanks buddy :salut:

To everyone else, apologies for the withdrawal, I know you are all addicts :P

ps, I started a twitter account for d-addicts (yes I know I'm way behind the times) @d_addicts

Apparently there was already a daddicts twitter user that claims to be this site, I don't know who set that up if you are reading this could you donate that account to us?

I haven't had time to optimize the database or http server yet so it may run slow at times.

Welcome back!

Everytime this happens (and I'm a long time d-addict, so I think I've seen server problems / server crashes several times now) I get a shock. I'm so happy that you're back. Thank you for always beeing there. Sometimes one must be reminded of what he has...I was just reminded how important you are to me. Thank you again so much for everything. :)

Let me just echo the sentiments of everyone above -- excellent work and many thanks for your dedication in the face of adversity (server crashes are like a premonition of death -- all our data gone!)

Great to have you back -- as the song says, you don't miss your water til your well runs dry!

I am so happy that d-addicts is back. I was already relieved when I read that it was a hardware problem, because someone speculated that I might have legal/copyright stuff, which would have been worse. Please let us help you with the server costs, just add a donate button (with a goal and what was already donated) and look how fast the server gets paid by all of us who realized the importance of this site in the recent days.

I just came home from a long day at work and opened my browser (d-addicts is one of my home pages) and was browsing as usual before I finally realized that it was back!

The last few days I've been as antsy as every time d-a has gone down in the past few years, yet it took me whole minutes to realize that it was back, that's how much of an everyday part of my life it's become.

So so glad it's back.
Thanks to Ruroshin for the exceptional work and dedication, as always.

I'm kind of surprised you didn't take the opportunity to do some upgrading while the site was down. I would imagine, if the "powered by..." thing is right phpbb has been upgraded since 06' with a myriad of advances that would help certain aspects of the forums overall performance/usability.
