Func_Msgboard Server Change
Hi everybody. In the next day or two I'm planning to switch over to a new webhost. For Func, this will mean some downtime while I transfer the absolute latest database image to the new server. I'm going to post in this thread a few minutes before the board goes down so nobody loses a post (hopefully.)

There will of course be a DNS change involved too, but that's less of a big deal as you will be able to use the IP address of the new server as soon as the board is ready to use.

And A Wedgie... 
...I'll add that. 
No Cheer 
Just Beer :) 
We want FLOYD! 
...Could you please xplain the meaning of the word "wedgie"? I already asked that to Gene Simmons of Kiss who mentioned it in one of his rants on the website, but received no reply.. Maybe I'm not worthy...

U R Awk 
The Silent

oh and nice one metl, smooth crossover there (hopefully i didn't jinx it). 
looks like DNS is sorted! long live func_qmap!

...but still no News Archive? 
Uh Yes 
Still no Floyd? 
My technical ignorance abounds...

Clicking on your link or the News Archive link or the View All Threads link gives a 'Cannot find server or DNS Error' ? Everything else OK.

Zone Alarm and Norton Anti Virus running.

Is someone picking on me? 
I have the same problem. 
Mike / Phait 
No problem with Mozilla FireFox on Linux environment... For sure it's again a Microsoft Problem 
I Can View It... 
with IE. I wonder if the size of the page (180k) gets blocked by some people's installed software. If you suspect zone alarm or norton anti virus, why not disable them temporarily and try it? 
Doesn't load in IE either, and I even disabled my firewall - doesn't load either way. 
edit filters of these programs to allow w/o any restrictions 
It's just that your DNS servers haven't been updated with's new info yet. 
Use Ping 
or similar on the domains or The IP should be Otherwise the remote DNS hasn't been updated yet or you're using some local DNS cache. Try flushing it.

Btw, smooth server move metlslime! 
Oh Yeah I Flushed The Cache Too.. 
I Was Singing Oh, Lonesome Me 
But now...

When you walk, through a storm, hold your head up high...'ll never walk alone.

Me and Phait, strolling down life's highway, arm on shoulder and singing...

Strollin', just strollin',
by the light of the silv'ry moon;
I don't envy the rich in their automobiles... 
Hurrah For Metslime's Server Change 
As well as Phait and Mike W having problems, and Lun's posts disappearing, I've had quite a few "server cannot be found" errors, and some exciting internal msgboard errors such as:

Error: Invalid Icon Specified

Error: Post or topic does not exist

Hurrah for progress!! :P 
i've been hacking away the past few days, trying to improve the post validation on client and server. These errors you've seen are the result of you visiting during moments when the site is broken becuase of my changes being half-done.

Re: server not found; this is more troubling. I hope these don't foretell a lot of server downtime on the new host. 
Server was down a couple of minutes during the beginning of the afternoon (near 13:00 here in france.., that seems to mean 04:00 for Func_ hour noted in post...), but now it's restored, perhaps Shamy saw this proble as well ? 
Ah Splendid... 
I was quite amused by the invalid icon error anyway =).

Yeah think I got the same thing as JPL there.
