    www.softlayer.net, cheap single processor dual core servers, 4 gb memory, no scsi, raid or anything fancy, files are rsynced daily to another machine, mysql database is replicated to another machine and dumped daily. there will be some changes to this setup in the coming months.

    Just incompetency at XS, plain and simple. And the sad thing is, very few if any of the long time members seem to want to face up to it. They seem to thing sucking up and candy coating is the solution.

    Just disgusts me to no end, so just keep donating and making excuses, that'll solve the problem. And I do agree about one thing..this horse is dead, right along with XS as far as I'm concerned.

    Simple redundancy. Rather elegant, and you never lose much of anything.

    I assume the backup process is seamless?

    were just tired of it.

    We dont care anymore.

    As i said, XS is more of a forum for friends once ur at that level.

    Once again you guys think you have it bad? Think of Ron, Dave, Vapor, Gauntam. [remember they had very little info also if any].

    I alone used to get around 15 emails to countless IM's asking when XS is coming up, and IM NOT EVEN A MOD OR ADMIN THERE.


    Not directed at anyone:
    Man.... if your not happy with XS DONT COME BACK.... no more complaints then eh? TPU is great, [H] is getting better... then theres EOCF, and OCF.
    Lastly, theres anandtech, which i bet will never go down until we do that stupid vB migration.

    yes, the rsync runs at some point in the early morning EU / late night US with some ultra low io/cpu priority
    mysql replication is seamless by definition, the slave host does the data dumping, so no load on the main db server.

    took me a while to figure out how to do it without slowing down the main site to a crawl or spending large amounts of money

    The Difference Between Guts And Balls

    We've all heard about people having
    guts or balls.. But do you really know the difference between them? In an
    effort to keep you informed, the definition for each is listed below.



    GUTS - is arriving home late after a night out with the guys, being
    assaulted by your wife with a broom, and asking:



    "Are you still cleaning, or are you flying somewhere?"



    BALLS - is coming home late after a night out with the guys, smelling of
    perfume and beer, lipstick on your collar, slapping your wife on the butt
    and saying: "You're next."



    I hope this clears up any confusion on the subject

    Right...apathy and resignation is exactly what allows things like this to continue. Just bury you're head in the sand a little deeper, and all will be well.


    But you did figure it out though, because you cared enough to do so. And that's the whole point. Hats off to you for running a site right and caring enough about your membership to do so.

    Thread breaker!

    wizz u dont happen to be the dude that wrote all the guides on pencil volt modding a 7900GT a long time ago are you?

    Nice. Many of our servers use Raid 10 or 50 setups, so that even in the event of a total catastrophic hard drive failure across one RAID, there is a mirror. That data is worth more than my ass. Something about working for a school that does a fair bit of research.

    Call it instant backup. Though, I admit, your way works quite well, considering the uptime of this site as well as its general size...

    no thanks, i got more important things in life then to sit and complain on why a forum isnt up. :nutkick:

    (also why ive been ignoring a certain member, im sure the guys in TPU are sick and tired of it and its not even there forum.)

    Get over it seriously.

    If you dont like it, leave... thats all there is.

    If you left, why you still talking about it?

    Seriously guys, you are acting like your constitutional rights were taken away, and spat upon.
    Its a FORUM. They dont need to abide by any rules besides a few federal.

    If your special, then you wont leave, and yeah, you'll stay, if you think your shorted on the end, then just leave and I'll personally walk you out with a smile.

    Seriously bitch and complain about AIG, wasting your suger calories on why XS is not up is unproductive after 2 weeks.

    I run raid 0 at home and I do two types of backups (bi-monthly and every other month) not to copy over any nasties like viruses or trojans.

    Oh I see now....If I'm special like you, I'll suck it up and stay. Got it:roll:

    Thanks, I guess I was just looking at things from the wrong perspective.

    You're still trolling around here Andy? I had thought better of you than that. If you truly dislike it that much then just walk away and don't look back. If there's a thread topic, here or in any forum, that is written by, supported by, and populated by people who are aligned and loyal to that topic/thread, then I would really have no business with it if the sole purpose was to stir shit and try and cause controversy. All my best to you. :)

    Dude I ain't trolling anything, at least not that I'm aware of. And why is it when someone stand ups and tells the truth, they're automatically less than, or thought of less.

    Shut up, take it or leave it, suck it up, make excuses, you're wrong if you complain, you're disloyal, no character, etc...etc...It's that very mind set that leads to mediocrity in life. At least that's the way I see it.

    And same to you my friend, the best of luck to you.:toast:

    Its all about attitude, at least here on TPU.

    Using the example before:
    "Just incompetency at XS, plain and simple. And the sad thing is, very few if any of the long time members seem to want to face up to it. They seem to thing sucking up and candy coating is the solution."

    "XS/Fugger screwed up. The backups taken too long, and no one wants to admit why"

    they both say the same thing, only one of them throws a few veiled insults in there too. Get the drift?
    crtecha says thanks.
