Re: Hello

They're probably somewhere. I'm just not sure where. I wouldn't be surprised if Ricold has parts of it lying around somewhere. If you know how to reach him you could prod him and see if he knows. Yes, and no. Yes, I have the backups from that period, but no means of accessing them in a usable forma...

Re: Library

Probably... ?

The files would have been in either root, /home, or /library, the database prefix was modx_.

If not, my local copy can be packaged up. But it doesn't work on a modern server due to using a deprecated version of php.

Library

I long aspired to get the library software working again. However I have to be realistic that it wasn't going to happen. elendor_f PMed me yesterday to ask if I could help getting him access to the library. In the process, I discovered that the library software (running on a virtual machine copy of ...

Re: [6th Edition]

Following a PM from elendor_f, I came to follow this up. The problem with the library is it is a piece of software, and a very old one at that. It doesn't run on a modern server, and I have a fairly complex set up which dates back to 2010 to be able to access my local copy. I did discover that it ha...

Re: Merging a bit more with Druchii and Asrai?

Given all the domains are on the same server, the following looks to be technically possible, if beyond my coding skill: Each domain having it's own files, and theme*. When you register from a given domain you lock in that theme (changeable) for your account on all three. When someone registers they...

Delay of several weeks is not an issue. Here is the information I can give you though. Getting it shipped to my address was somewhere between USD 6 and 7 (I closed the window by mistake). Shipping to the UK would be about $14 for one set based on the weight they gave, another set probably wouldn't a...

You lovely people are some of the few international friends I have and would trust, and I need a little help. I am trying to buy something that is incredibly hard to get inside the EU, but is relatively easy to obtain in the USA. This is the product: http://www.superdairyboytoys.com/product_info.php...

Two: Daeron is now an administrator, and I'm going to give up on it soon.

But otherwise nothing, we've changed backends.

Oh, I suppose if we crash our server it'll take the Druchii down with us.

Sorry about the downtime yesterday, taking a full manual backup has never been the most smooth of exercises. I'm starting the process of moving our hosting out from under us. We will be trying desperately not to have more than a few days downtime, but.... you all by now know that my plans have never...

Re: You probably never saw this coming

In which case I'm making a decision. We will be going to the Druchii server, and we'll have downtime to deal with in the middle. The slight flaw with your plan there Daeron is that DNS changes have been known to take up to a week to propose to all the cache servers across the internet. We'll just ha...

Evergore??

This will seem like a strange question, and I never recommend following random links or searches on the internet.

Does anyone here know what Evergore is? It appears to be a German RPG system, but my search skills and Google translate from german are not getting me much further.

For once, I'm actually laying plans for some of the mess that will be going on here. I realise it's been less than a year since I took over Ulthuan, and caused you all hell while the site went down as I transferred it from one server to another, but I'm doing it again. At some point in the next few ...
