All,

Ok, ok, ok...so we've talked about having the new forums up and running for 5 months now.  Well, we aer going to give it a go this friday, May 13th.  Yes, I know...Friday the 13th!  Nothing like setting ourselves up, eh?

Here is what will happen:

- At 9:00am PST, the forums will go into maintenance mode so everything can be read, but no additions.

- We will make announcements though out the day, under this thread, as to the status.

- Hopefully, we will have everything moved over and rerouted by 5:00pm on the same day.

That's all for now!

-Chris

I'm torn between saying "About time" and "Yey!". And my cynicsm says we'll get an excuse on friday on why it'll be happening on monday (or whatever) instead.

Well I know I for one have been whining quite a bit about the delay...  if we only knew what was going on with all those other "high priority" things we would be much more understanding... I remember something about weekly updates.... ;-)

Anyway, it is great to see that it is finally going to happen.  Thanks!

First update!:

We are changing the time the site will go into maintenance mode.  The time will be 9:00am EST, not PST.  This is to allow me to do a full site backup before the switchover.

Thanks!

I updated the news feed earlier.  Here's what is happening:

- The server is live and the software is being installed
- Backups of the entire JGO site occurred. Turned out there is a TON of files and data, and I backed them up twice Smiley
- New forums will go thorugh a data import shortly

More news to come!

Ok, so the issue I have is that I am moving all of the posts/members across the wire and it is a boatload of stuff.  Unfortunately, this means that the forums may be down for another day.  I can't risk having people enter more data and not hae it move over to the new forums during the conversion.

Sorry for the delay, but it will be worth the wait in the end Smiley

UPDATE

With over 35,500 files downloaded and cross checked, we are not finished yet with the data migration.  This means that the server will not be ready tonight and we will let the transfers happen throughout the night.  I should have the server up and running tomorrow.

This means, of course, that these forums must stay in maintenance mode one more day.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

Happy Saturday everyone!  Here's the latest:

- Almost all of the files have been moved over (it's a long way to our lab from the east coast Smiley ).
- Setting FTP batches overnight sounds like a great idea, error checking is a bitch.
- After checking all of the data, making sure everyone's account, settings, profile, posts, etc. moved over I will do the fourm upgrade.
- I am still optimistic that everythign will be finished today and up for the evening.

More to come!

New update!

Apparently, the forums have angered Mother Nature as a massive thinderstorm is now blowing it's way thought my area.  Hoping that it won't take the power out before the last bit of data moves.  If you don't hear from me for a while, you know what happened Smiley

All data installed, first forum update went off without a hitch and am now moving to the second set of upgrades.  Working a bit late on a sat, but am glad that the new forums will be up for you to enjoy.

Hang in there!

OK.....
Data over? Check.
New boards installed? Check.
Everything works? Check.

Can't import 3 of the boards? CHECK.

So, everything moved over and installed but the conversion borked on 3 of the boards, so I am working to debug now.  If I can't get this up and running by today, I will leave the new forums on (but in maintenance mode) so you can see them and turn these back on so you can post.  I have to do this because I will be at E3 next week and I'm sure you don't waht to keep these in maintenance mode all week.

Thanks!

NEW UPDATE!!!

Ok, so I converted everythign over again but, alas, 3 of the boards didn't come over and they are very important.  LWJGL, Xith3D and jME did not port due to the fact that the heading of those particular boads starts with a number and not a letter that is confuses the importer and kills it.

I have sent e-mail to the author and believe we will have a work aorund for this, so not to worry.

IN THE MEANTIME.....I have left the NEW forums up and running, but in maintenance mode, so you may get a glimpse of what awaits you with the new forums.

A copuple of things need to be corrected, namely the doubling of member counts and some duplication of posts, but these are minor and I know how to resolve.

Thanks again for your patience and sorry this could not be completed (but I did blow my whole weekend trying Smiley )

Thanks for persevering in the face of shed-loads of recalcitrant data. I had to look up the spelling of persevering.  Not a word I use often Wink The new forums will be worth waiting for.

OR you could just let me do it.
I have been programming dynamic websites for like the last 2 years and if I need any new info there are thousands of members here that read the OT forums and I always could ask a teacher.

If you only have a few things here and there it's very realistic, and by the time you come back it will ultimately take you much less time as you wouldn't have to fix anything.

Me too!

ROFL - for once ChrisM does a really really good job of giving out information, and is defeated by the fact that we were all shut-out by the forum software and weren't allowed to view his posts. I feel for you, Chris, really I do. But if you don't laugh, you'd have to cry...
