  • Website maintainance Sept. 16-19th

    Please be advised that the site will be undergoing some maintainance. We will actually be moving the site to a new server - YOU will not see any difference once the change is complete - but during the change we will be down for a few hours.

    This change is needed based upon the down time we have had from our current provider.

    The NEW chat room should be ready next week! We will announce the data very soon!

    Take care,
    Lisa

    Re: Website maintainance Sept. 16-19th UPDATE

    If you are reading this message then you are looking at the 4HCM.org site on the new server. I moved the database at 8:00 am this morning and requested a change be made to the domain DNS. Unfortunately, it can take 24-48 hours for this change to be completed across the internet. Therefore, not everyone will have access to this board right away - it may take a few days before everyone's access has been restored.

    Additionally, any email sent to 4HCM.org (i.e. Lisa, Kelly, support, etc) may not be received right away either as the mail servers need to be updated with this same rerouting information which again may take a few days to complete.

    Thanks, Tim

      Re: Website maintainance Sept. 16-19th

      Good morning!

      If you're like me and read Tim's posting about his work on the website and are wondering, "what does this mean to me?" and/or "do I know or want to know about a domain DNS?" I thought I would try to translate from 'geek-ease to normal person' terms.

      Tim has worked on the website this morning around 8am EDT to move it over to a new provider/server. Until the changes/updates are completed, not everyone will be able to access the message board; it may be a few days before everyone can reach the board. Additionally, this will impact any email sent to 4HCM.org (i.e. Lisa, Kelly, support, etc.).

      Please be patient and we'll all be together again soon!
      Thanks,

        Nice job Tim... everything seems to be working great. I even tried out the new chat link. Of course it's closed right now, but i'm used to chatting with myself anyway.

              Well, lookee here,
              It appears that for some strange reason that is beyond my comprehension, I have a copy of the new site. Love the way you set up the chatroom entry and counter.

              Well, maybe not – first it says ‘welcome’, and then it says ‘closed’. (I’ve been thrown out of better places then this!) To be fair, I guess I should give you the balance of the week-end – but when was I ever fair?

              Serial-less-lee, I think you’ve done masterly so far. Will you be posting the time and who (doctor) will be hosting the ‘Doctor Exchange’ – ‘Doctor’s Hour,’ – ‘Medical Forum,’ ‘HCM on the Air,’ or whatever you wish to call it? It would be great if we could get that info in advance, and it would allow for some flexibility if one doctor would prefer a different time then another.

              If the postings for that period could be posted for a month – and then excerpted for a look-up file, (to quote my father) it would be the ‘cat’s whiskers.’ (Or is it the cat’s pajamas?) - - - They really did talk that way. (Strange how colloquialism’s sound a century later.)

              Anyway, 23 skidoo,
              Burt

                Burton,

                23 skidoo?

                WHAT are you drinking today, dood? You need to be sharing it, whatever it is.

                Now be polite and pass the bottle, buddy!

                    Great job, Tim! I didn't even miss the site because the latest hurricane knocked out my internet till late last night. I'll be forever reading all the posts since I was last on.

                    Lisa and Tim, thanks for all the work on the chat room. I know that's been quite a job too, and you just make it look like it magically appears. Linda

                      Re: Website maintainance Sept. 16-19th

                      For some reason, I'm not getting the inline pictures for all the buttons on the site.

                      This is the respons I get when requesting a pic directly (basically 403):

                      HTTP_REFERER: (none)

                      REMOTE_ADDR: 62.163.211.140


                      REQUEST_URI: /images/nav_message_on.gif


                      HTTP_HOST: www.4hcm.org


                      HTTP_USER_AGENT: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)


                      REDIRECT_STATUS: 403

                      Redirect having something to do with pop-up blockers or anything else?

                      I resolve www.4hcm.org as IP address 209.59.159.190 (should be the correct one). Anything wrong my side?

                          Tim will look into this and reply back w/ info, etc. Thanks for bringing up the problem w/ all the details!

                            Tim and Lynn,
                            I have some more info about this problem. I think that there is some incompatibility between my network security and this new site. I cannot see anyone's pic except Burt's, nor any buttons. The reason I suspect network security is that a couple of days ago I viewed this on Ed's computer and all was normal. He has a different version of Norton that he got from the university here, whereas I got mine from Norton directly. We often find that there are differences in what can pass and what cannot. If you can find out what is blocking these from coming through, I can probably turn that feature off.

                            Whatever the problem is, it has only occurred since we went to the new server for this board. Before that I had no problem.

                            Thanks for working on this!
