Classic tech move, Cappy.

"I don't know, it's probably DNS *burp* *hic*" - Cappy McPassthebuck aka Dr. LIES.

No seriously ya'll, it was the DNS. In lawman's terms: You (me) were all drunk and knocking on the wrong apartment door. In the morning you won't even remember us grabbing you by the shoulders and pointing you to the right place. You should be ashamed of your (collective) self.

In fairness to our drunk selves, we were all knocking on the wrong apartment door because Damon picked up the old building and moved it to a different zip code. It just takes some time for the movers to install the teleporter that will take us from the old place to the new place.

Oh yes, this metaphor is going smoothly.

Is anyone else having an issue staying signed in? I have the "Remember Me" option checked, but if I navigate away from the boards and come back I still have to sign back in. What up with my cookies?

I'm looking into the sign in issue.

It's most likely not DNS related, as the DNS is propagated now across all networks according to the various DNS tools I've checked.

Most likely, the boards cookies (not your browser cookies) are dropping the login at a timed interval forcing a relog. I haven't had it happen to my account so I don't have a solid way of testing it. But it sounds like it is happening when people are logged into the boards, and sitting idle (not posting). I'm going to dig into the cookie settings on user groups and see if there is some interval for timeouts (like 15 minutes), seems the most likely culprit.

The boards install was with all default settings. Over the years I tweaked and changed stuff, so there are a lot of settings that are probably in need of some modification by me (the number of times you can "like" posts in one day for example, Greta).

I did activate upload and download for all members. So you can upload small files into posts (.docs, mp3's, etc.). I never ran it before but I thought I would give it a try and see if people used it (example: upload an mp3 of your band in a "Show off your music" type thread).

Any update on the image/gallery uploads? It's still saying I'm out of space for uploads.

I haven't enabled them. I need to come up with some type of size scheme to keep things in line with the more limited space we have. We won't be hosting hi-res like before (I think I had it at something huge like 2500x2500, might need to be more like 800x800 which is in line with web display anyway).

Thanks Damon, you are the best! :)

Woohoo, the DNS finally updated for me! Who's ready for some borderline inappropriate comments?

I am.....and I'll start.

Re: DNS. I can't be the only one who thinks of that scene in Pulp Fiction where Quintin is referring to a sign in his yard. The scene right before Mr. Wolf shows up to remove the contents in the back of Jules & Vincent's car.

Am I the only one who thinks of that scene when I see DNS typed out????
