This one's a few decades old. A really really REALLY badly done coat of blue paint is the developers idea of improving a building that should have been demolished years ago.

Ah, yes, developers...everybody's favorite people... rolleyes.gif

The new LA projects are basic concrete gray mostly--a couple are pale yellow in accordance with Southwest US architecture. The latter might have been a better choice.

You do know the countryside smells of poo? That's all there is. Livestock, and poo. I spent the best years of my youth in the countryside, most of it standing in, on, or near...poo.


Nah, the agriculture near me is vineyards, and they don't fertilize them with that any more. Did I mention the dark skies?

Dan, good luck on your house move. I will envy you for your dark skies biggrin.gif
Toronto is almost as bad as LA.

Dough,
I am hoping, as all the rest, on a smooth transistion. Being in the in the IT business, I know that even the best laid plans
may not go as planned smile.gif

Yes, good luck to you, Doug on the transfer. I have fingers and toes crossed that nothing will go wrong. I'm sure your by-now-vast experience with the Invision software will let you bring UMSF back online with no ill effects. (However, I'm already beginning the trembles, the first symptoms of the deliriens tremens that will pile on me full force in the tenth or eleventh hour without UMSF...)

And my heart goes out to you, Dan. I moved about 18 months ago, and while it was an urban move (from one city location to another), about 80% of it was accomplished over a period of six weeks, consisting of load upon load of boxes, transported a dozen miles in a truly tiny Subaru Justy. We had to have made more than a hundred runs before we ever even thought about renting the truck for the major furniture on Moving Day.

Sorry to hear that you're going to have to downgrade to DSL. It's better than dial-up, to be sure, but the speed you get is so dependent on your distance from the "central office" that it's truly a crapshoot whether or not you'll get tolerable service. I wouldn't recommend satellite internet yet, though -- last I heard, most of them still require you to upload via a dedicated dial-up telephone line, with only downloads available through the dish at broadband speeds.

As for rural areas being covered with poo -- in the U.S., that's sort of variable. Major livestock farming over here tends to be concentrated into blocks. You can have hundreds of square km with nothing but plant farming (corn, wheat, soybeans, sorghum) anywhere in site. Some farms will maintain a small amount of livestock on a primarily agricultural farm, but that livestock doesn't amount to much in comparison to the cornfields. (Of course, a relatively modest-sized pig farm, no matter how small a percentage of its county it may take up, is still going to make a very strong impression on anyone who happens to be downwind of it on any given day. Trust me, I know. I grew up in central Illinois.)

So, while you can *always* find poo out in the country, here in the States you can usually avoid it pretty easily -- if you watch where you're walking.

After firing "dig" at several nameservers it seems I've found the new box and it's working too smile.gif

Well - the transfer is done. Currently, the DNS hasn't refreshed to my ISP yet - so I'm viewing via a proxy that uses a path that has got the new pointing right. I can't reliably test the site in full until I can navigate 'naively' but I think everything should just about be working.

Just add the new server's IP address to the local hostfile and things should work fine. That's how I got in here.

Testing adding an attachment. This is just a console log of me going through several levels of nameserver with dig to find the new server's IP address.

Attached File  digging.txt ( 4.09K ) Number of downloads: 320

OK -- it's about ten minutes since I noted in the lifeboat blog that Comcast doesn't have the new IP associated in DNS yet, and here the forum popped up. So it's propogated out this far.

Looks good, Doug!

Must be propogating out pretty fast -- control panel says there are currently 71 people on the forum, 10 members and 61 guests. That's a pretty normal number for a Saturday late morning, here (late afternoon over on the other side of the pond).

Got it!
First attempt half an hour ago pointed me to the old site.
Er..., I suppose I'm posting at the new server, right? smile.gif

Yup - if you can post, you're on the new site. The old one now has a closed message.

Response times for pretty much all functions are noticeably faster here, Doug.

This joint is jumpin'!
