Websites Update  
All of the auto-archive sites attached to the Moments-Lost domain are now set to maintenance mode. That means that you cannot update, edit, delete, read, review or sign up to any of the sites at the moment.

I've backed up all of the files to my own computer*, I've backed up the MySQL databases, and theoretically it's all ready to start from scratch with the new host.

The only slight problem is that because of payment methods, my current account is going to expire before the new one is set up. That means the changeover will not be as smooth as I had hoped, nor will it provide me with a safety net. Since I suck at MySQL and since I remember having trouble uploading the databases to the current server as it is, I may be asking for a little help or advice a couple of weeks down the line.

Again I'll keep you updated!

inapadmin people? I've posted this over there as well but just in case it's not on your default view or something, you three will be able to see more than normal visitors to the site. Please do not make any changes to anything (either in your own account or in the validation queue) because it will mess up the backed up files.

* I got a weird message on my ftp programme while I was doing this yesterday. "The computer loves you. Trust the computer." I kid you not - I checked back through the status messages and it wasn't me imagining things - it really is there. SysAdmins, aren't they just the whackiest?!

I am holding good thoughts.

(I'd been up for an hour already by that point...)

I do, I just have this horrid memory of me having to get the tech support staff at DataFlame (current webhost) to upload the entire database that I'd backed up from 1and1 (ex-webhost). Now since I'm moving from DataFlame to DreamHost, I have all these worries that the same thing's going to happen again... I'm being paranoid, but messages like that from my ftp programme don't help... *g*

I may have a temporary location for INaP right now, but I'm keeping quiet about it in case it doesn't pan out. My broadband provider give me 250Mb webspace and MySQL access. I *think* I transferred the database over this morning, but I couldn't get the files themselves transferred 'cause I ran out of time. I *might* be able to get it to work tonight though.

... course I might end up finishing the batch of icons I started last week or getting some more work done on a fic, or maybe getting some reasearch done on some of the weird things I've decided to start researching...

Well, it's better than most unexpected error messages I've seen. :D

It's one of those things that normally goes past so quickly that you don't get a chance to read it, but I was copying over all my gallery pictures and there's some ginormous files in there so it slowed right down.

It was slightly freaky really!

That message would've freaked me out.

It amused me more than freaked me out, but then when I thought about it I started to get a teeny bit paranoid about it!

Crap, If I'd have seen that I would have run screaming from the room. Never.trust.computers.

*grins* It was pretty funny at the time but then the more I thought about it the more freaked out I got...
