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. 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
  2. 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 ?
  3. 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.
  4. 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).
  5. UPDATE: Server move is happening today. Will start in about 30-60 minutes. Downtime unknown. Will get it back up as soon as possible.
  6. 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
  7. Its been done. Welcome to the board.
  8. 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.

  10. 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.
  11. Cheers for that. Sometime today I will actually take a minute and look in to it. And start working on a new theme.... Or maybe ill just hire someone to do a better one this time. If this thing didn't broadside my ass I would have made screenshots etc to "save" what I could of the theme. Live and learn lol.
  12. Ya that was tongue in cheek. It was about 1.5 days. Almost 2 days.
  13. Hi Guys. A couple of you early birds might have noticed that the site was down for 3 or 4 minutes.... So... I am going to give a nice long explanation on what happened later... after I get some sleep. It took me almost 2 days of full time work with almost no sleep at all to get this fixed. In short just so you guys don't go crazy with the speculation, it was a catastrophic failure of invision's auto upgrade script along with my dumb ass not seeing that there was an error message that cancelled the backup I took just before I hit the upgrade button. So ya. That happened.
  14. Ok, ill check and see what that button actually does later tonight... not sure where it gets its data... but its not all moderators ?
  15. That is not correct. Not sure where you got that list... our mods are listed there, but other non-mods are as well. As of right now we have 6 mods plus myself.
  16. Yup, in the freezers at Friendship. I have also seen it at Villa market, but not as frequently. I have always found it at friendship when I needed it.
  17. Hi grin, Not going to comment on the substance of your post, but if you want to get out of moderation (and see all of the forums!), please click the link at the top of your screen about verifying your account and go thru that process. Will make your posts show up faster, and make things easier for the mods ? Frosty
  18. Agreed. Even in aircon breathing is .... maybe not difficult, but noticeably more difficult with a mask on. Its doable, especially in public and its totally needed in these times, but lying about it helps nobody. I use washable and re-usable masks tho... so I do not bin them. Just put them in the wash with everything else. Not as good as a N95 maybe, but a lot cheaper and almost as good - at least for here in Thailand where covid is suppressed for the time being. But ya, once you sneeze in to it, there is no more wearing that one lol. Nasty. lol.
  19. Not excusing the behavior by any means as it is very rude at the least... but he might have severe allergies. I have really fucked up allergies, and on bad days wearing a mask is like torture, especially if sneezing. And sneezing in to the mask would pretty much ruin it. Again, not excusing him - he should have just sneezed in to the mask and then put on a new one - thats what I do. But you can only carry so many of the damn things.
  20. I tried editing this so that the video would show instead of the link, but apparently IPB doesn't like that link. But it is a good and safe link, so I'll just leave it.

  21. Ok guys, This change has been made and completed... there was a good 12 hour window where emails were not going out. I am not going to have the system re-send those emails since almost all of them were just new post notifications. Looking back thru the logs, it appears that about half of the emails our system was trying to send out were blocked because we were over the limit of that other service... so we should see a much better result now being on our own server. If anyone sees any email related issues from here out, please let me know. Frosty
  22. Ok guys, So since the board has been upgraded I have been using a 3rd party email service called SendGrid. Its free, but its limited to 100 emails per day... and while I don't fully understand their limits since it has let us go up to 120% sometimes and sometimes it doesn't... its been a bit of a pain overall because we go over 100 emails 9 days out of 10, resulting in many emails not going out - including "forgot password" and other important emails. The underlying issue is that email is very complicated to set up properly, and I am not a linux expert... e.g. I was not confident en
  23. Hi guys. Just a quick note to let you know that there will be some changes to the board email notifications system coming in the next 48 hours and that starting tomorrow your thread notifications may be missing or delayed for up to 24 hours. Hopefully just a matter of minutes but it may be longer. I'll post a longer explanation of what I did and why tomorrow. Frosty Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
