New Server!
 
Almost Smart has been moved to an upgraded server..

There might be some quirks since the site is now running a different version of Apacha / PHP / MySQL.

Please let me know if you find anything that is broken.

P.S. I do still plan to try to get the store back.

Negative...I upgraded to one of their VPS plans. :smile:

We will see how running on ASO's virtualization plays out, but AS now has a dedicated 512 MB of RAM to play with, 20 GB partition, etc..

Thank you.

NO gifts! Hate them so much!

Thats cool though. If I actually had enough sites to host and did reselling to friends etc, i'd upgrade too.
but i dont have enough income or interest.

Now... go fix the titlebar

Can we have the who quoted me feature back? Plox? It's the only demand I've made for about 3 years :(

The attachment upload seems to be bugged. I can't upload any images. Everything I get if I try is: "This is not a valid image file"; all the time with different images, sizes and formats.

Huh. That's...wow.

For the past year or more now, I have been unable to view (let alone log onto, let alone do anything on) Almost Smart without using a proxy server: Rather obnoxious. It didn't occur to me to try NOT using a proxy, but I inadvertently did 30 seconds ago, and it worked! I guess updating the server must have fixed the problem (whatever it was...), which is awesome! Thank you, Weasel! :D

Rachael, when I first helped you to get back on AS via the use of a proxy server (actually, all I did was tell you you need to do that and you cleverly did it all yourself. Congratulations!) I told you to periodically check to see if you could log on with your regular IP address. Did you never try that? Also, did you never try to log on from a friend's house either? You mean my suggestions went unheeded?!

I am glad you can log on regularly now though. I tired of seeing your IP as proxy.guardster.com. I mean, what the hell is a guardster anyway?

Yes, I did try logging in normally occasionally. Actually, quite recently. But it did not work until the server was changed, it seems.

And I never had the opportunity to log in from a friend's house, since all of our "gatherings" are either here or "out and about." But yes, otherwise, I would have. :)

Wow, you're kind of a stalker! But yes, "guardster" is one of the several proxies I tried--the best one, actually (but a timed trial, of course!)--but one that inexplicably stopped working, along with proxycrowd. I normally used ad-free proxy, spysurfing, and/or ad-free-proxy-site. Unfortunately, some of the proxies will not let you view images or profiles or the member's list, Avatars, etc. Things like that. So I often had to use more than one simultaneously just to view AS. Quite annoying; I'm glad it's fixed!

You know Firefox has a built in proxy add-on called Foxy Proxy which you can turn on and off from your Navigation Toolbar.

Yeah, kinda.

Actually, the reason I periodically resolved your IP address was to see if you ever got the problem fixed.
I was always disappointed that I couldn't resolve the problem myself.
Now I am relieved to find out that it was a server issues, whatever it was, and that there was nothing I could do.

A "kinda stalker" is better than a "stalker stalker," I always...never say!

But yes, I did appreciate your efforts; I'm just glad the problem was fixed, somehow, as well. ;) In this case, by the great and elusive Weasel himself!
