    Default ANNOUNCEMENT: Server failure (aka. WTF HAPPENED?!?)

    Hi all,

    I was sent a notice by the server hosting company that the machine BC resides in had a hardware failure. It took them just more than an hour to migrate the disks to a new server.

    It appear that other than some downtime, everything are intact.

    If you do see some weirdness in the site, do let me know.

    meanwhile, BC is back! enjoy and please don't send me any therapy bills.

    cheers.

    sigh. looks like there will be more migration in the near future. expect a few more hours of downtime while they migrate the server again. i will let everyone know when there is more definite time window for it. hopefully it won't be done smack in the middle of the SSF this week.

    Speaking of which, have you noticed that there are some spurious hyperlinks embedded to posts by viglink.pgpartner.com?

    Eg. here

    yes.

    i am playing around with some alternative revenue sources. viglink is one of them. unfortunately, well, the revenue from it can't even buy me a coffee every day... sigh.

    If you need revenue to keep this wonderful train rolling then fill you boots and get more ads.

    But please keep them off the posts. It makes us ordinary forumers look like spammers.
    (perhaps the revenue would stretch further if you switched from $tarbucks to Dunkin' Donuts coffee)
