If you are losing the password cookie, try using www.unmannedspaceflight.com instead of just unmannedspaceflight.com

This is what I use actualy. I've been asked again for pasword today (but this time my computer remembered it so I had to hit "enter" only)

I've switched back to the non-stronghold cookie - so it would ask some people again.

New server doing beautifully.

Also - the problem of getting GD to rebuild the thumbnails from the few days when it wasn't working is fixed - PHP didn't have enough memory allocated to play with. Fixed with a quick ini file setting change.

Gotta say frankly that this is the best yet by far; really captures what UMSF is about in a single image. Love it!!!!

Go Phoenix!!!!

Doug, I just dumped my entire cache (finally), and ever since I've noticed that I have to log on every time I surf back to the site from elsewhere. Not a big deal, just thought you'd like to know. Running IE7 here on XP.

You shouldn't, I certainly don't. Not a forum problem I'm afraid. Are you visiting www. not just .umsf ? There isn't a 'make people forget logins' button that has been pressed.

Yeah, seems to have been me; it's working fine now.

Weird. Maybe the cookie didn't load successfully the first few times.

Well that was interesting. No idea of a cause for that 1hr of downtime yet. Server management team are on the case.

"It was related to a small power issue we had, everything should be fine now."

YOU'VE got power issues. Clearly you've never parked on home plate for 8 months.

On the way back up, the database got a kicking which cause some session control issues. I repaired the database ( by hitting a button marked 'repair' ) and it's back up and running fine now.

What's amazing is how quickly the current visitors number rocketed back up after downtime. Having had look at Google Analytics - yesterday was UMSF's busiest day this year - and I can see a pre-phoenix trend. We needed this server smile.gif

#1: GO TO BED & READ THIS LATER!!! (Please?) smile.gif

#2: As I mentioned on the Lifeboat blog, ask these guys about their UPS arrangements...might be time for another fundraiser for a standalone device.

Quick war story: Last year during my Reserve duty here in sunny SoCal we started taking bets as to when our automated test bench would shut down during the afternoon...we got within less then ten minutes of error, usually. The power grid drain from air conditioning use throughout the area was so high that the supply voltage would drop below the station's tolerance for a second or two at a time & it would shut down. We bought & installed a nice 15KVa UPS (way bigger than needed for a server, obviously, but that station does a lot of other stuff, like providing high-current DC for testing flight control computer servoamps)...no probs from then on, and in fact much greater reliability because it conditions the input power as well, thus preventing power transients from messing up components.

So, if the server's well inland (Pasadena or further east), it's gonna have some power issues in the summer. Today was an anomaly--we almost never get T-storms this time of year; actually, we almost never get T-storms, period--but it might be a harbinger of future probs.

Don't worry. He's just acclimating himself to be up and bright-eyed when Phoenix lands.
