We'll be migrating our forums.slimdevices.com server to a new host in the very near future (Wednesday, 3/24/10). At this time, I cannot yet provide an exact time frame for the move, but I expect it to take between 4-6 hours of actual downtime. I expect the move to be on Wednesday morning (approximately 8am, PST), but I will provide more details when we get closer.

I'll post in this thread when the work begins, and when its finished. For now, this is just a warning that if you see the site go down.. thats probably why.

I'll refrain from making the gratuitous joke about Logitech missing the downtime's "launch date" by a month. Or did you mean _March_ 24? ;o)

Yeah, wanted to give a heads up on this: he's talking about March.

The forums are going to go down in a few minutes for this maintenance. It may take up to 2 hours.

Does http://bugs.slimdevices.com work for you (same address, but without httpS)?

Ok, the non-SSL version works for me.

Is the SSL/HTTPS version supposed to work again or do we have to use the HTTP version from now on?

Email notification on subscribed threads does not work for me anymore. :-/

Is that a general problem or am I the only one with that problem?

Try now, let me know if its working. We forgot to add our new mail relay server's IP to the SPF records. Comcast was denying emails from this server because of that, we suspect.

(They're mail server's bounce back messages are very generic... so we're not 100% sure until we see it working!)

Matt,

Well, I'm not sure if it's working now, at least I did not get a notification about your message..

i have comcast however i don't do email via the forum, but i do do it via bugs.

using IE8 anytime i tried to go to bugs the last week or so, i got a "dangerous website" message, but i just clicked "continue anyway."

so my question now is should https be working now? is that the one you want us to use? or just http with no S?

Previously they had an expired SSL certificate. I think they've moved bugzilla to a new server and didn't bothered to set up SSL on the new one, so HTTPS doesn't work at all.

I subscribe to the forums via email and I seem to be getting most (but not quite all) posts twice. Is this coincidence, or something that's just applying to me?

Thanks

At least the notifications are working again, apparently. :-)

Hi

Is there a problem with search?
I get a blank page with URL http://forums.slimdevices.com/search.php?do=process after any type of search.

Hmmm, works for me...

Odd - some searches are fine now.
Can you try with "one for all remote" (without quotes)? Yes I know these are short words etc.

Confirmed, I only get a blank page for this search.

I normally access the forums using an https address (https://forums.slimdevices.com/), but that address no longer works -- the server only seems to accept plain old http now.

i seem to get thread updates/notifications randomly now, is that related?

i thought upgrades were supposed to improve things? ;)

Any reason why you're wanting to use https vs http? The extra encryption overhead puts significant added load on the servers, and slows things down for the browser too.

HTTPS was dropped as the certificate was out of data anyway I believe.

There really isn't any point in HTTPS for a forum like this.
