Re: Redirect Weirdness

So you're not getting an error, but when you login effectively nothing happens? It just takes you back to the home page and you're not logged in? I've seen this sporadically since "fixing" the error message. Edit: I just updated some settings and actually renamed the cookies that get created (someth...

Redirect Weirdness

Not sure if anyone else was noticing this, but today I started seeing the following error whenever I tried to create/edit a post: General Error Tried to redirect to potentially insecure url. I'm not sure why this started showing up all of a sudden, as I hadn't changed anything since the update last ...

Re: phpBB Update

Random curiosity, but does the software allow for auto update? I don't think it will auto-update, but I might be able to have it notify/email me when a new version is available. Also, updating from a recent version of the software is a lot easier than updating from a super-old version, so it should...

Re: Jobu's SECURE Forums

Will this be coming back now that the forums have been updated? I didn't know what you were talking about at first, since all my bookmarks/history specifically use the secure protocol (which still works fine for me). But then I just tried going to the normal http:// address and sure enough, it didn...

Re: phpBB Update

My savior! (Except that it says there are no active topics. Uhrt?) Apparently it's tied to a setting that got disabled with the update. I just turned it back on, so maybe things will start popping in now? I still don't see any listed, but maybe it only picks up active topics after the setting is en...

phpBB Update

Realized this weekend that the forum software hadn't been updated in close to 10 years! Yes, I am a terrible sysadmin. So major update installed today, bringing everything to the current release. Just did a little random clicking around and everything seems to be working OK. Let me know if you notic...

Crisis Averted

As many (possibly all?) of you noticed today, we had some forum difficulties this morning. It ended up being a billing issue (my fault) that is now remedied and everything appears to be hunky-dory. You may now return to your normal Saturday routine. :D

Jobu's - A 10 Year Retrospective

Yes, as I mentioned to some of you a couple months back - this year marks the 10th anniversary of these forums being active. If you look at the profile of my normal account , you'll see: Joined: 04 Oct 2001 07:31 pm For some reason it lists this admin account as joining in July of 2001, which is com...

PM Update

Today I finally got around to changing something that had been annoying me for ages. The maximum number of messages in your PM box has been cranked from 50 to 500. Dunno if anyone else gave a shit about this but it seemed like every month or so I had to go thru and clear out old PMs. I like to be la...

Re: Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

Did a bit of maintenance just now and got rid of some of the obsolete forums. Some didn't apply to our interests anymore, others just simply hadn't been used in ages. Most I didn't delete (as I didn't want to lose all the posts for each one) just hid them from view. So they're still around, you just...

Re: Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

Migration complete. The name servers have been kinda flaky all day, bouncing back and forth from old host to new, but I figure that'll all get worked out over the next day or so. I think I'm gonna leave the default theme for now - it just makes life easier. Smilies appear to be having some trouble.....

WTF Happened?!

This, my friends, is the newest major release from the folks at phpbb : phpbb 3.0. I took an hour today and converted everything over from the old board and everything seems to have gone smoothly. I've noticed a few little quirks here and there, but for the most part everything appears to have made ...

According to my referrer logs, it happened at around 6:40 in the morning. I checked the site around 8:30 this morning, saw what had happened, and had it all remedied within the hour. It wasn't fucked for very long - 2 hours tops. For what it's worth, 212.200.40.253 seems to be the offending IP addre...

Jobu's HaXX0red! OMG WTF?!

Yes, it was much to my dismay this morning that when I loaded up the site, some unscrupulous individual had taken the liberty of exploiting some weak phpBB code and took it upon themselves to change the name of the site and one of the forums. Thankfully, that's the only damage that appears to have b...
