Maybe I am missing where the field is located, but how do you change your forum time? Mine is set for DST so it is a hour ahead of what time it really is and I've looked all over account settings etc trying to find how to change it.

You have made a place in my heart where I thought there was no room for anything else. You have made flowers grow where I cultivated dust and stones. Remember this, on this journey you insist on making. If you die, I will not survive you long. Dovie'andi se tovya sagain!



People so seldom say "I love you". And then it's either too late or love goes. So when I tell you I love you, It doesn't mean I know you'll never go, only that I wish you didn't have to.

I'm still having issues with the time. Auto-detect originally said -5, but keeps reverting to 0 now and screws up my time as a result.
Guys, this is getting creepy. Can we talk about cannibalism instead?

If auto-detect's not working, you should be able to manually set it at same place. Alternatively, check your time and see if it's being synced correctly.

Um... I had to make a new account because I couldn't log in on my old one. I know I had the username and password right, but it wouldn't let me log in. I tried to retrieve my password, but it said my email was not associated with my account... Is this due to the new forums?

That would be because this is an entirely new forum that exists on a different server and none of the old names came with it.

New forums means new server means no old information from the other forum/other server which means new registration is required which means nobody has their old posts unless they check the old forum.

So, yes.

0 offset should be the proper time for you, Sleepy. That's what I have it set to and the time is correct, so should be correct for you considering we're in the same timezone.

Same here. At first -5 was the correct time, but now it's 0.

Server time was set to some place in Africa and is now set for New York. So yeah.

So the last 2 days there have been lots of downtime on the forum. I hope the server and stuff is ok.

It is. The issues were due to one client. I've been working on this nearly non-stop.

Unlike Proboards, though, I have actual, /direct/ control over the server that this forum resides on.

What happened was a regular weekly maintenance script that optimizes and repairs ALL databases on the server choked and died on a client's SQL.

It subsequently brought nearly everything down. I was able to bring it back since it was still online, just responding very slowly via SSH. That done, I set about fixing the issues encountered. It took over 5 hours to fix because of that one goddamn client of mine.

All's fixed... as for the recent outage, it appears one of our datacenter upstream peers up and died from the traceroutes I was provided during the outage while I was sleeping because during the entire ordeal, I had little to no sleep. :x

I'm fully rested now, though, so I'll be keeping this server under deeper monitoring until I'm absolutely sure the server's 100% OK.

Avatars can't be GIFs? Can we fix that? My kitten's been staring at that red thing for ages waiting for it to move.
Let me make it real easy... if anyone is interested in my actual opinion, please ask, I'd love to talk to you. If you are interested in trying to catch me out in some sort of "gotcha, before you said 'many', but now you're saying 'lots', you totally shifted goal posts", then, I'm not playing.
