Well, it's time for Tripawds to grow up folks. Technically speaking, that is. Our friendly little community of three legged dogs and their people here has grown beyond the limitations of our current shared hosting account.

These Tripawd Discussion Forums will be locked down as read-only or offline at times while we perform a migration to our own dedicated server. We will strive to keep the interuption of service to a minimum, but rest assured that forum and chat room performance should be much better once we're done. 

Expect delays or lack of access from Tuesday March 31, to Friday April 3.

This  much-needed upgrade is necessary to support our growing number of users and will enable us to offer the new free features we have planned. Stay tuned for details!

We will post back here with a more specific time frame and progress reports. Thank you for your patience.

Stay tuned for server migration progress reports, but in the mean time please consider helping us out with this costly upgrade. For the past couple years René and I have volunteered endless hours to maintain this website and covered all expensesout of our own pockets.

We want to keep this site up and running at peak performance, which is why we're moving to the new dedicated server. But we just can't afford to do this alone. Please read our post about how you can help us help others for complete details. Or give what you can below, every little bit helps!

You can also help us with this fundraising campaign by placing this ChipIn! widget on your own website. Just click the "copy" link to get the code. Thank you for your continued support. With your help we can improve performance of these forums, enable new features, and best of all ... keep it free to join!

We will begin our migration to the new server on Wednesday, April 1. No fooling!

While we will make every effort to complete the transfer as quickly as possible, DNS propogation can take up to 48 hours and is beyond our control. These forums may be locked down as read only or inaccessible during this time.

We apologize forthe inconvenience. Thank you for your support.

If you're seeing this post, then the new DNS has been propogated. This is a good thing.

So far so good ... we've working off the new server now, but it can take up to 48 hours before the new DNS gets resolved on servers around the world.

Now that we have the added server capacity we'll be trying out a few things to test the limits, so please report any anomalies or technical difficulties here. Stay tuned for exciting new features and capabilities around here. And thank you for helping us make this possible!

I just wanted to let you know that I haven't had any error messages for over a week.  Good job!

the only issue I've encountered is using the spell check... (an error message box came up saying something was open)

Interesting. Had you successfully used the spell checker in the past, before the migration last week? If you could copy the message and PM me or paste it here that might help us determine if its server related. Thanks!

It's taken a lot of work, but I believe we have squashed nearly all the bugs on the new tripawds install here. Most of which have been transparent to end users.

The only remaining known issue is the Post Reply spell-check error. (Thanks Kim!) Anyone know how to configure PHP to enable ssl socket transport?Winker

We're working on it! Please report any other unexpected anomalies here. 

We've already noticed a vast improvement in forum performance, and have been able to implement the new random header images. Stay tuned for more new enhancements. Thank you for your help making this migration possible.

Bandwidth Limit Warning

False alarm folks. If you saw this message, don't panic. The new box has plenty of bandwidth. Just needed to have some account limitation settings increased. Embarassed

I guess tripawds is more popular than one might think! Thank you for your patience while we work out the kinks.
