Displayed prices are for multiple nights. Check the site for price per night. I see hostels starting at 200b/day and hotels from 500b/day on agoda.

  1. Just about to hit the sack when I got this notification, so I wont put a lot of work in to this... just too tired and there are a LOT of lessons learned over the last couple decades of living here (almost anyway. Somewhere north of 15 and south of 20). I agree with all that Forcebwithu said, but ill add to that this: For the last 18 months or so, I have seen zero dangerous spikes in the electric grid. My main workstations are super expensive and almost none of the parts can be bought in Thailand, so I am very careful with them. I use a 3000va Smart UPS for that and it monitors the
  2. ok, ill look in to it. I know there is a big update for the board needed... and I need to finally upgrade the server hardware. I think its time I do that lol.
  3. This says posted on May 2, but I just got the email notice. Anyone else? And Gary, check your DMs if you have not already.
  4. I think I resolved this. Let me know if you see the issue again. Also, I did not get a notification for this message, so if this kind of thing happens, do not hesitate to call or email/message me outside ptalk if I do not reply quickly.
  5. This is a much faster server... but it seems to have broken tapatalk. I am working on that 🙂
  6. Ok, site back up and on its new home. Please report anything at all that looks weird! Sorry that took so long! Frosty
  7. HI guys. This got delayed for technical reasons, but I am starting on this right now today... will be taking the site in to offline more here in a moment, and will return it to service once the move is made. This may take most of the day today - I will try to have it done as fast as possible, but I expect it to take at least 6 hours to transfer the data. Will update this thread once we are live on the other server.
  8. Hi Guys. Been a while since ive posted here.... sorry about that! Been super busy for the last year. I am getting some failing hard drive notifications on the server this site is hosted on, and I fear the backup is out of date. So I am going to move it asap. Not sure that will happen today, but it will be very soon... and there will be no further notice. When I start I will take the site offline and you will see a message saying the site is offline... and when it comes back up it should be on the new server, provided the hard drives last that long. ? Will update here as
  9. It was about 2 years ago now or so. Its always been my intention on doing something like a landing page on the www portion of the site, but all the life changes that came with covid just blew that out of the water... tho I still hope to get around to it ? Sorry about the confusion... ill see if there is something I can do to forward those other possible addresses for the time being. Thought I Was doing that actually, but may not have been ? - its been one of those years.
  10. Ya, this new (very temporary) server .... well... sucks. lol. By spec its not bad... but its shit hardware. My servers are still in route to the new datacenter, so it will be at least a couple weeks before I can get back on solid hardware again. Not much I can do about it until then
  11. Ok guys I know we have an issue here... I am trying to find a workaround. Give me some time please.
  12. @jacko is this still happening? Do you know a way to reproduce it reliably?>
  13. Oh that's not good. Let me see if I can fix that.
  14. Move is complete. for now. I already do not like this new server... The rushiness of this (yes, I just made that word up) forced my hand... but its up and working, and while it may be a bit slow - that part is temporary. Once I secure all my data (still have a dozen servers to go) I will post a longer explanation of why this move was necessary and my plan going forward - there will be another move at some point - back to my own hardware, but it will take several weeks I think. The hardware has to be shipped from its current location (Michigan) to California, where a good friend is going
  15. ok guys. Last update on this one. The transfer took a LOT longer than expected... not entirely sure why. But it appears that I will need to take the site down during the sync as changes made here are messing with the restore over there. So in a moment I am going to take the forum offline and it will be offline until its up 100% at the new server... and I am sorry to say that the process could well take 12 hours. I will try to make it faster this time, but its kinda out of my hands - it takes as long as it takes. but the results will be worth it ?
  16. Ya, this is still the old server. Next time it goes offline ill change DNS and sync up changes... the initial data copy is still happening in the background. Takes a minute to transfer 250GB of shit lol.
  17. Server move is in progress, but the forum is live for posting... I will briefly take it offline again to re-sync data in a few hours once the large file base is transferred (its taking a very long time).
  18. UPDATE: Server move is happening today. Will start in about 30-60 minutes. Downtime unknown. Will get it back up as soon as possible.
  19. Hi Guys. Sorry for the late reply on this, but this website will be changing homes in the next couple days and due to the extreme number of things I have to do there will be little to no warning before it happens. I am going to do everything I can to minimize the downtime, but there will be some. I will give a longer explanation as to why later, but the short version is the datacenter I have hosted my dozen servers with for the last 15 years is closing down on short notice and I must move all my servers to a new datacenter... and while this website is personally important to me, the othe
  20. Its been done. Welcome to the board.
  21. yup, this is on me. Give me a couple more hours. Just waking up and heading to work - will process it when I get there.

  23. Yup, our plugins were turned off, and at least one of them are out of date. I did not want to turn them on while I was tired in case they broke something. Will get them back on today. Also, just got a quote of $250 for a fully customized theme with unlimited changes for a week. So I might just do that. Ill post a poll later asking for color suggestions.
