  • Going Down for Maintenance

    FYI:

    I'm going to close these boards for a little bit to back up the database. I'll bring the forums back up and then I'm going to do a test upgrade (elsewhere, not here). If the test site handles copying and pasting (and email sending) better, I'm probably going to switch these forums to the newest version of vBulletin, before we all get too comfortable in this version.

    Thanks!

      Re: Going Down for Maintenance

      Site seems to be a bit slow. Is there a problem?

        Re: Going Down for Maintenance

        The slowness is being caused by the import of the old AtomicThinkTank database to this server. (The old ATT will be archived here.) The posts table from that database is the only part remaining. It is about 1 GB imported out of a bit over 2 GB. Should be about another day of slowness, at the current rate of import. Should be quick again by the weekend at the latest.

          Is there any way you can create a "View Source" button? I know some people are using this opportunity to update their old Role Call builds (I'm thinking of doing the same) and, in some cases, it would be nice to be able to copy over the BBCode and then modify it with the updates instead of starting all over again.

              Ah, thank you. My usual standby methods of Quoting the post or using Edit had been disabled.

                Ah. Seems to be going a bit faster now. Or it could just be me.

                  The import is almost done. The posts table is at around 1,100,000 rows imported out of 1,115,545. Based on progress so far, the remainder of that table will take approximately a shockingly long time to import.
