Well that was a understatement! The good news is that this is here and functional again. You may want to redo your shortcut if you have one being one letter changed in the path from a cap to a lower case letter and it matters. Now I have to get the webpage working again! Let me know if you got in ok and if it is all working alright.

Just checking in. How long has the forum been back up? I got a 404 error on my old bookmarks today (Thursday) which was a change from the previous error message. So I googled, and here I am. :D
I'm a man........but I can change........if I have to........I guess

Yeah I corrected a mistake I make back over 0 years back in regards to the path to the forum. In the old path the F in Forum was capitalized. Now it is a lower case f as in forum. That one thing breaks it but I shouldn't have jacked with it way back then. It is fixed now but breaks everyone's shortcut or link to this forum.

It sucks to have to mess up so many folks to make it right but I have meant to do this for years. I don't think I'm ever moving this again. I decided to get it right before I parked it for good.

So here we are. What's up? I may have to send out a mass email to tell everyone but there is no hurry. Most will figure it out or see it at HOOK's and know. It is all good.

I was starting to freak out when it took them over a week to get it rolling again. the problem was the database connection strings or something like that. Stuff was pointing to the wrong places. It is basically all fixed now. I'm happy.

Wow! It feels so relaxing to have the forum back and going again. Who knew something so (I don't know what word to use) but something like this forum could have so much weight in regards to me feeling balanced. When it was off I felt off kilter badly. I hated it. It is back and I feel much better. I hope never to move again.

Thanks HOOK.

Now on to thank another one here. I won't mention his name because he only gave me his real name but he plays CG and emailed me to mention that certain map he loves had stopped working. I finally found some time to look for myself and found not only what the problem was but determined it wasn't just happening to him.

When I moved all of this House of Hermskii stuff just recently to what I think and hope will be its final resting place I became aware the file structure changed. I called and spoke with my web-host provider and they confirmed it when I had run into a different yet semi-related issue. It turned out the issue didn't just affect him but it caused all of the servers i have to fail sending high speed redirect files. I fixed lots of that issue but not all of it.

I created some of my own problems by changing the capitalization for some of the file names in paths to needed for game-play files. I also found that many files aren't named properly and yet they were never an issue before somehow but now cause them not to download properly if needed. I fixed the ones I found and tested all 4 of the UT99 servers that my name is on. They are all working now again.

Please report any files that refuse to be sent to me so I can fix them. I need the map name for sure when this happens. Thanks! Thanks to you too Mr. DM-KONOSUS lover.
~Peace~

I was still getting the 404 error, so I thought it was down for good since it never came up for me. But then I got a message about someone responding to a post and I clicked on that link and it brought me to the forum without the 404 error.
Are you going to pull those pistols or whistle Dixie?

DAVID!

I can't imagine how many links are broken now all over the internet to this place because I uncapitalized that one letter "F" in the word forum in the url to get here when I moved everything this last time. I don't care though. It needed to be fixed and I don't even recall how it ever got capitalized in the first place. All url addresses should either be all lower case or it should not matter whether they are lower or upper case. It does matter though so I fixed it. hermskii is going all lower case baby or at least the url is.

I was wondering where you were and whether maybe I needed to send out a mass email to tell everyone but now that you and Nelsona, HOOK, Nameless and EvilGrins are here the circuit is now complete! Everybody is here right? LOL. If you are a regular and I didn't mention your name I'm sorry. I'm just trying to poke fun at myself since I have slacked off so badly over the years that this place has dwindled to junior varsity of UT forums. It doesn't matter to me though because I love this forum and I will do my best to keep it going as long as I can. If nobody posted for a year I'd keep it up just in case. Now that I'm here and have backups and all of that it is now nothing for me to keep this place going.

Yes, kill that shortcut or whatever you used to use to get here and rebuild it using www.hermskii.com/forum and all will feel normal again.

I was about to email you to make sure you figured it out but wasn't too concerned.
~Peace~

Well said!
Yes we are now complete - complete what? I do not know, but we are complete.
Yep, it is nice to know that this forum will be here! :wink:
My forum could go away in an instant. :| True! :roll:
... and when mine does ever go, I AM moving in HERE! :P

I'll leave the light on for you! Everyone else too. I feel a little bad Nameless was in the dark there for a little bit. I'm glad you got that worked out and I'm grateful the RedeemerInsanity still exist and functions for exactly these types of situations.

TWO things you can count on...
Death, Taxes, Redeemer Insanity and Hermskii

Err, was that four? :roll:

Thanks to HOOK all of the HOH servers became a little more secure today and will be searchable more easily for folks going forward.

I actually got UT2004 installed back on my box today for the first time in a very long time. I also had a chance to quickly destroy my son on {CG} earlier which was nice being he is actually way better than me now but he focuses on MonsterHunt and BunnyTracks now.

The server files are all on a new web-host that I'm pretty pleased with so far. I just need to fix my web pages now and then actually rework the entire website to make it far better which shouldn't be hard to do.

This forum's mass email feature is working too. Things are finally starting to come together a little bit! It only took 10 years about.

More later as I
think of it.
~Peace~

This is at you EvilGrins:

I just finished hitting all of the forums I used to frequent posting the message with a fixed link so people can get hear again or save it to their favs again. It took forever. It is basically done. I hope I don't get banned for advertising my forum there on their forums. If I do it is your fault EG! LOL.

Happy New Year and Frag On!
~Peace~
