|We don't bite newbies here... much|
Tuesday, January 29 the current Perlmonks server is going away -- we will be moving the site over sometime today (Monday,28) so that we have some time to redirect to the new server.
Our new digs at PAIR aren't quite ready yet -- we have mod_perl, but apache seg faults when the DBD::mysql connects. This may take some time to resolve since we only have user-level access and have to play email tag on debugging the problem.
In the meantime, we will be moving to another Blockstackers server -- which means there's going to be stuff that breaks, and very likely the site will be slow(er) until we can get the Pair.com Perlmonks install up and happy.
update: 1-28-02 2:43 PST We seem to have our DBD::mysql problems worked out -- so we will be moving to managed hosting with Pair.com.
If you encounter server errors, please email <firstname.lastname@example.org> and <email@example.com> and one of us will try and get to it.
If, after Tuesday, you cannot reach the Perlmonks.org domain because of DNS lag, try going to moving.perlmonks.org -- we will have information on our moving status. I will also try and keep the people in #perlmonks updated.
Thank you for your patience,
UPDATE 1:10 am Tues 29 -- We're not outta the woods yet. Moving over to Pair failed (mysql kept dying) -- so we're running on a backup server. I apologize for the slow load times. We're workin' to fix.
UPDATE 12:30pm Weds 30 PST -- We're still having problems with the Pair set up, so we're trying to create a makeshift solution using a bunch of old Pentium IIs. Hang in there.
Update 3:30pm Weds -- Hooray, we're at pair!!! I'll be looking into performance issues ASAP
