Title: Member Flood!

With all this chaos and the Dwarf Fortress site being down, this forum has seen a massive influx of members and viewers.
I wouldn't be at all surprised if we hit the bandwidth quota and kill the temporary forums...  Wouldn't that be ironic?

What is the bandwidth limit?

Post by: jaybud4 on October 24, 2008, 02:01:08 pm
That's just it...  I'm not seeing the number anywhere.
I'm hoping we won't actually hit it unless you guys start attaching stuff to your posts..  Maybe I should just disable that...
EDIT: I have 25GB per month on the images.
I really doubt we get much more then that for the forums...

Urist McSpammer, Bandwidth Hog has used up the bandwidth limit!

Your fortress has crumbled to its end.

Aqizzar, Potash Maker has immigrated to your fortress.
Aqizzar, Potash Maker is throwing a tantrum!

So this you people have been hiding yourselves!  Anyone know how much of the old forum's threads are going to survive the transfer?  I'd hate to lose all that.

Apparently Toady backed up the whole SLQ database a couple of days ago just in case something like this happened.

Toady thinks of everything, including backing up as soon as there are server problems. :D

Maybe limiting/disabling Avatares, signatures and picture attachments for now would be enought to brevent a bandwich breakdown.

Attachments IN GENERAL, yes.
Signatures HAVE to be outsourced to other hosts and avatars should be anyway.
I think we're fine except for the attachments...

You people need some way to let other people who were on the forum know that some people have set up a temporary forum so that us people can converse between us people, so as to not be too disturbed by the forum being down.

I just found out today about this forum by checking the wiki...

That's the only way I could think of.
If you can think of any others, go for it.

Maybe some members here have other member's e-mails?

I have a few which I'll see about contacting.

Hey all, I just found this site via the wiki, I was starting to get concerned.
I don't know for sure, but google still has a cache of bay12's website, and you may be able to find some means of contacting Toady there.  (Google 'dwarf fortress' and click the little 'Cached' link below the main link.)

Kudos to whoever set this up (Jaybud?), it's great to have some means of getting more info on the whole (hosting) debacle again.

Yup, that'd be me.
I knew about the cache thing.  All it lists is Toadyone [at] bay12games.com which wouldn't work anyway due to the domain being...  gone.

Oh well.  I hope he checks the wiki.

Strife, Trooper, reporting for duty. Bloody hosting company.

Well then, let's get used to our short (knocks on wood) exile here.

We had contact with Toady in the Dwarf Fortress main forum.
He stated today (Monday) would be the day his new host said they'd have it ready for him.
He also stated the 21st was the most recent backup so we'll lose a couple days of posts unless his old host lets him grab the database.

Rawr! The Demon of ... has arrived!

Yeah, I found out because I thought the forums had been down abnormally long, so I poked around looking for the forums.
