    Working on the website, playing RuneScape, hanging out with friends, listening to music. I'm not really active playing RuneScape anymore, although I would really like to be. If there were a few more hours in the day I probably could - the idea is simple: increase the length of days by 6 hours or so (for a total of 30). That's pretty hard to do though, so I'm going to invent a Time Machine to turn back time each day. Who wants to help? ^_^

    I'm pretty good with Java and PHP, although I haven't mastered either one yet, and I probably never will. :P I love (X)HTML and CSS. I like helping others in the Programming forum with their coding issues, and I usually do my best to fix problems that people pm me about. :-)

    When I'm not busy in real life, you can usually find me working on updating the current guides on the site or adding new content, coding up a new app, or doing other admin stuff behind-the-scenes.

  1. Welcome back to the shiny new forums! :santa:

    1. Adam?



  2. Hey all, As you may have noticed, Sal's went offline last month. Our server crashed after years of being unmaintained () and we had some data corruption. Unfortunately, backups of the server and data broke at some point... which would have made the process so much easier! I was eventually able to recover the community data, but needed to rebuild the server, essentially from scratch. Apparently a lot changes in 6 years for web servers, so a lot of banging-head-against-keyboard ensued until I was finally able to get things into a good state. And... here we are! Apologies for the delay in getting things back up and running. Let me know if you have any questions! Cheers, Sal
  3. Kami! Return!

      ...I notice you do not honor him by calling him Kami-sama.

      That is them thar rebellious behaviours, I tell you. :bann:

  4. Darn it, I forgot to add Egghe's IP to the server ban list! I mean... Welcome back Egghe!!
  5. This work is now complete! The main website and forum are both running on a shiny, brand-new server! Things appear to be working just fine, but let me know if you notice anything amiss. It's a bit of a bittersweet moment though -- after a decade of serving our community, the old server will be decommissioned once I'm sure the new setup is working properly. Hopefully it will be turned into new servers or shiny new iPhones or something! Cheers!
  6. Hopefully it's not the smell of burnt electronics! You're welcome! I haven't forgotten this place! ?
  7. Hey there everyone! Believe it or not, the site and forum have been living on the same sever for more than a decade! In computer years, that's like 100 million and 3 years, give or take a year or 2 million. Basically, the forum is being served by a Stegosaurus, or something like that. It also turns out that a comet is about to destroy the very part of the datacenter housing our server, so there's that tiny detail too. Anyways, the server is really, really old, and it's living in a really old building that's about to be demolished pretty soon. Seriously, this is all true, I promise! So, I've spent a lot of time building a new server environment elsewhere which should be easier to maintain and upgrade, and it should cost a lot less to run! It also seems to run a bit faster/smoother, and we'll have the benefit of running on all the latest and greatest server software! I'm planning on running the final part of the migration on Wednesday, 9/26, which is basically the part where the forum database is moved over to the new server. My plan is to take the board offline on Wednesday night, copy over the database, run the final maintenance steps, and then update the DNS to point to the new server. For you, this update should be completely painless, except for the fact that the forum will be offline for awhile (oh noes?). I'll update this topic when the work is complete! If you have questions, or just want to post pictures of your favorite dinosaurs to celebrate the life (and impending shutdown) of the old server, please do so in this topic! Cheers, Sal
  8. I'm not aware of any outages or downtime. Were you unable to connect to the site at all? Were you getting an error message? Thanks!
  9. Heh! Rather than accidentally banning him, we'll do it on purpose. We can totally do that, especially for a troublemaker as heinous as Egghe!
  10. I'm currently working on migrating the site and forum to a more modern setup, and I may end up leaving out some of these security layers altogether. It's becoming difficult to manage, and as you've experienced, it's causing issues for regular users too. So this problem may completely go away very soon!
  11. Can you try now? Also, stop trying to BREAK things, Egghe!!
  12. I guess the news bot just really wants us all to know about Double Dragon Chests... whatever those are.
