    We'll be moving the Free-DC site, forums and stats system to a new server some time tomorrow night. This will probably take place after 10pm EST, during which time the site will likely be unavailable to some users as the DNS changes take effect.

    I'm not expecting this to cause any problems since Bok is handling the bulk of the work personally and the DNS change shouldn't take more than 2 hours to update.

    We'll soon be on a shiny new system...

    Hopefully I've got redirects on all the pages for the stats pointing to the relevant new ones, let me know if that's not the case It's purely php on the front end now, no static html. I'll do a sticky post on them in the next few days.

    Also, as always let me know of any bugs in the new stats.

    Blame the find a drug site....

    http://stats.findadrug.org.uk/stats....1&Order=Points

    This is where I pull the stats from, so mine are technically correct.....

    unless, and as a thought, they have them split out by id :yikes: not pretty

    Yup - that's what they did, but it was evidently a mistake.

    Supposedly the 1800 GMT stats will be merged by nickname/email again.
    There's at least 3 threads on their forum about it, including one I started.

    How did you post ? local dns?

    Anyway, no the forums aren't moving till tonight. DNS will be changed at 11pm EST.

    It might be a little slow as I'm doing lots of maintenance & clean up on the current server today.

    Ok, all done.

    Forums are running on new server. Switched off on old one.

    resolving ok for me right now, but then again I'm cheating and using local DNS

    Everyone else should resolve in the next few hours....

    I think everything is running on the new server, including the dnet proxy. If anyone was using an IP address for this, they should change it to use free-dc.org.

    Let me know if there is any problems

    Looking good from Seattle.

I feel saturated by it. I can taste your stink and every time I do, I fear that I've somehow been infected by it."

    The only thing I could complain is that http://stats.free-dc.org/dnet/ogr/byemail.html isn't updating

    But the rest looks good to me!

    Is there a .txt file or .csv available for TKC or do you have to trawl through all of the team pages individually ?

    Bok

  29. #29
    Bok,

    I'll head over to the TKC forums and ask the project manager. He may be able to hook you up w/ something to make it easy to make a stats page.

    If not then I'll shut up about TKC.

    At the moment I grab each teamstatspage (only one: Free-DC) and search all the numbers I need from the HTML pages...

    And their Web-API isn't very helpful
