Maintenance: 4/3/2008
« on: April 03, 2008, 10:30:33 AM »

Our new server is nearly ready to go. At some point today, I will be putting the forum in maintenance mode until the nameservers have a chance to resolve to the new server's IP address. This could take some time. Just a heads-up. We appreciate your patience.

I guess we will all have to find something else to amuse ourselves for a while....   

Glad to see it happening though...   

Thanks for the heads up :) :) :)

Due to the nature of the transfer and the potential downtime, we're going to delay the maintenance until 10 pm tonight. Estimated downtime is only a couple hours, but the resolution of the nameserver IPs could present issues into tomorrow.

Understanding and Resolving IP Address Conflicts

Is this what you are talking about?
What OS does MT use? Just wondering.

Marilyn, they are talking about DNS name resolution to the IP address change for the site, not conflict.

If I had to guess I would say they are running Linux or UNIX, but then again, based on the performance it's probably Windows based!

Ok TYa! :)

1) Short for Domain Name System (or Service or Server), an Internet service that translates domain names into IP addresses. Because domain names are alphabetic, they're easier to remember. The Internet however, is really based on IP addresses. Every time you use a domain name, therefore, a DNS service must translate the name into the corresponding IP address. For example, the domain name www.example.com might translate to 198.105.232.4.
The DNS system is, in fact, its own network. If one DNS server doesn't know how to translate a particular domain name, it asks another one, and so on, until the correct IP address is returned.

University of MT! lol i luv it

Hey, be nice. It's Linux. :)

Looks like your running this LINUX on at least a 486  :P

So far, so good...

I shouldn't have said this I know..
