Planned Chat Downtime: 1 September 2015

The host has notified me that a planned software upgrade will take place between 2015-09-01 02:00 UTC and 2015-09-01 07:00 UTC. Downtime should last for 2-5 minutes and if I've set everything up correctly everything should come back up with no intervention. How nice is it to have a host that notifie...

Re: 7/15 Announcement: Planned Downtime for Nightscrawlers C

The old server is now down; if you connect to chat.nightscrawlers.com (port 6000 or port 6667 - default for IRC clients) or go to http://chat.nightscrawlers.com/ you should have no trouble connecting to the new server. Some nice things about the new server: - Much better technical infrastructure; no...

Re: 7/15 Announcement: Planned Downtime for Nightscrawlers C

This downtime has been postponed to 7/16 in order to finalize setup and make sure everything's the best it can be. The new server will be connected early in the day so hopefully there will be a smooth transition and not in fact any downtime.

Thanks!

Re: Chat down?

Chat is back up. I opened a support ticket with my host, and it looks like for some reason my server was the target of a DoS attack that eventually crashed it. This has happened a few times. I'm very likely within the next month to move my server into the cloud, since I want to play with IaaS anyway...

Welp, I clearly need to check in more and I need to not rely on being notified via Facebook. The host restarted the server. The chat server has been up this whole time, for what that's worth, but the Web interface was down. I set up the Web interface to run on startup, and set up an external service...

4/14 Announcement: What Happened to Nightscrawlers Chat?

If you click Chat in the links bar above, you might notice that Nightscrawlers Chat looks just a little different! We have discontinued use of our Java client and switched fully to use of the AJAX Web client we had as our "backup" before. We did this for a couple of reasons. Firstly, Java has recent...

Re: 12/13: Planned Downtime for Nightscrawlers Chat

I have just changed the DNS records to point at the new server and am starting to bring things up. Our records specify that these records should propagate in an hour or less but it could take more depending on your Internet Service Provider. Edit: The server is up at the new address. Obviously there...

Re: 12/13: Planned Downtime for Nightscrawlers Chat

I have actually shut down services to make sure nothing will go wrong with the database; this should have no really problematic effects other than channel operators not getting opped automatically.

Hmmm. I'll renew my investigation of this, though I think upgrading to a later version of the forum software may be my higher priority as it could address this problem as well.

Edit: The forum software has been updated; let's see how things go.

Absolutely no way to eradicate it, unfortunately. There's a thriving economy in e-mail addresses and once your e-mail address gets on a list, it will never die. The best you can do is use different e-mail "tags" when you give your e-mail address out so you can see who gave your address out once you ...

Re: Buggy java chat

I think that's because you're accessing https://chat.nightscrawlers.com/. You should just be able to access http://chat.nightscrawlers.com/. The former may cause a problem because I have not purchased an SSL certificate for the site, and do not plan to at this time.
