Re: Yeeshkul!

TJ has a back-up but it's several weeks old. Not sure it can be transferred to a new host if he decided to change the forum software.

Re: Yeeshkul!

Hopefully some of the non-torrent threads devoted to important research can be restored.

I work in the Telecommunications/IT industry and many times when changing from one system to another data is able to be uploaded to the new system from the old one.
yes, more important than torrents, are the threads, as well the Pink Floyd forum area.
There is and incredible amount of information, would be sad get lost.

Well, I really tried it hard with shitty ISPs and speed to keep a good ratio!!!

Anyway, thanks Neon and JFE to point me to TTD, I was really worried.

Good luck to TJ and the mods of Y! Shine on

Re: Yeeshkul!

I remember TJ once stating very plainly that Y was not a good place to archive information and people should not rely upon it for those reasons. Recent events have proven him right. If the more useful details on the site have not been lost - e.g. posts by the likes of Grolsch (RIP) - steps should be taken once it is up and running to make it safe in other ways.

Re: Yeeshkul!

TJ here.

Just to put a few things straight...

On Tuesday Jan 22nd I attempted a server reboot but the server failed to come back online. There was a problem with a second hard disk drive the night before, so I'm assuming that it's this that's stopping the server from rebooting.

I and the other mods have tried to contact our current provider Electropopmedia.com both by email and phone - but they simply just do not respond.

So to make the most of a bad situation and perhaps dump some gremlins that we've had to suffer in the past behind. I've decided to give the site a total revamp.

We will seek out new hosts and new software. I intend the new version of Yeeshkul to be along similar lines - ie a forum (likely vBulletin based again but a more recent version) with a bit torrent tracker attached.

I do have a back-up of the existing site locally, but I don't intend on restoring it - not fully anyway. I might retrieve sections of it and make them available for reference purposes.

I don't know how long this will take to re-organise everything - a week or 2 - who knows? Just know that we haven't thrown in the towel yet.

Cheers.

_seemed_... You are right.
And in fact explanation was needed indeed IMO.

Does it ring a bell?
And I see that to delete no less than 500 thanks didn't ring a bell.
Well, no problems indeed.
What I wrote in my last post is clear.
I don't care and I don't need any stat.
I was and I'm not interested in give further explaination which a clever person should not need.
What is important is the history, the research for that and the free diffusion of the results.
The rest is rather irrilevant.
The ZP research (and others) is safe and went ahead without any help from Y.
Y was the place used to its FREE diffusion ( and BTW in exclusive ).

Will ZP whole research re-appear on the new Y?
Is not up to me. I'm surely not willing to re-build all the monumental research from scratch.
I'm only sorry for that real lot of people who really like that.
And I'm sorry they will suffer from the disservice which I didn't start.

As I was a researcher for the whole of my life (even in my working life) I can suggest to the new Y to keep each single topic in one thread or in a chain of threads.

hahaha!
Thank you for the hint.
Just we don't have any problem. Don't we Ron?
Just points of view
I declare, really not problems at all.

No problems my friend. I like you, even if you are a bit crazy obsessive and even if I am overly critical at times. Looking forward to seeing you on the new Y!

Thanks for the update on this. Will our user name and password be valid or will we need to re-register?

Most likely everyone will need to re-register.

Good Morning Ron,

Can you ask TJ if there's any possibility that on a short term basis he would let us get our individual posts/threads? I understand he doesn't want to do a full backup. But I think a lot of us would like to have those if possible?

Thanks
