Dear NFBNET.ORG users:
I am pleased to be able to tell you that we have successfully gotten
the new nfbnet.org server to work and switched services over to
it. There are still a few things to clean up, but most things are as
they were previously, or as you would expect them to be with the new software.
We still need to process the message archives to adjust some links,
which have changed. Otherwise our mailing lists should function as
they did before. This processing may not take place until early next
week, but otherwise the lists should function normally.
For you web masters, the sites are up and running. We are going to
try and sync content once more tonight, to capture the changes that
some of you made last weekend or earlier this week. That should
happen this evening, hopefully. I will write web masters separately
with new instructions.
If you have any problems, or find something that doesn't work, please
contact me at dandrews at visi.com
Once again I thank everybody for your patience. Because of the
complexity, the process was somewhat messier then we would have
liked. It turns out that there was a bug in the software that IBM
uses to control the RAID array for our disk drives. They
characterized it as a "code issue," but it was a bug if you ask
me. Once we got the firmware updated things happened as expected.
David Andrews, SysOp and List Owner
