    I removed it from the network for now.

    Chat Room [IRC Channel]

    I finished adding two additional servers. irwindale.irc.finalgear.com is in CA, USA dracon.irc.finalgear.com is in BG zandvoort.irc.finalgear.com is the old server in NL irc.finalgear.com is now a global geo-targeted address. Folks in the US should be sent to the US server, and folks in Europe...

    The server is back, and things are working. I'll get some additional servers up for redundancy this weekend.

    The server host is down right now. This host has been super unreliable, but I haven't had a chance to move it or add a second server yet. Sorry about that. When it's back up I'll work on making things more robust. Here's the email they sent:

    Sorry. I didn't notice it hadn't restarted after a server issue. It's working now, and hopefully I've fixed the autostart scripts.

    It took more than a year, but the certificate is fixed now. Also, I've updated the IRCd and changed servers, so let me know if anything goes wrong. The best place is IRC, since I almost never check the forums, but I'll try to pop back in here to see if anyone mentions stuff going boom.

    If you're wondering why we were down earlier, our hosting provider had to do some maintenance on the underlying hardware. Thanks for being patient.

    I was able to upload my avatar, but not import from another website.

    Why was the site down earlier?

    Try deleting the site in Tapatalk and then adding it again. Others have reported that that fixed the problem.

    In theory, I've fixed the db crash issues. I'll be monitoring to make sure.

    I did some maintenance on the server tonight. It seems to have gone fine, but let me know if you see any issues.

    The "New Toys" Thread

    I've got the 42mm one, which I think is just right. I bought it for the longer batter life more than anything, but I'm happy I got that size. This is the first time I've worn a watch in about 6 years, and I have to say the rubber fluoroelastomer band is really nice feeling. I bought it...

    The "New Toys" Thread

    I just got one of those. It's quite nice. Finally a worthy replacement for my venerable Logitech MX Revolution (the only other mouse with the software-controlled wheel clutch). I also got my ?????? a few days ago. I think it's pretty good.

    How many fellow Finalgearians have you actually met IRL?

    The only ones I've met are the ones at that SF meet we both went to at 21st Amendment a few years ago. It was probably around 6, but I don't remember the exact group.

    It should be working now. Let me know if I'm wrong about that.
