2 Replies and 9416 Views September updates done  9416  2 Started by  Ron Miles I got a wee bit behind in August due to my work schedule, but I just finished making all of my site updates for September. Lots of new books, a couple new covers, a couple new links to print and/or Kindle editions. All good stuff. Enjoy!

9 Replies and 6582 Views Website Migrated to New Host  6582  9 Started by  Ron Miles FYI - This weekend I migrated to a new web host. The person who had been hosting the site for the last several years basically decided to get out of the business, and so here we are at the new host. If you are seeing this, that means you made the jump. If you saw some weirdness recently, that's what it was about. If you notice any problems, please let me know.

3 Replies and 5367 Views Registration Temporarily Closed  5367  3 Started by  Ron Miles Due to a flood of fake user accounts being created, I am temporarily closing all new user registration on the site. My understanding is that this is a known issue currently in the DNN ecosystem, and it is not a specific targeting of this site.  The solution is to replace the existing CAPTCHA verification system with a different system, which I won't  have time to do until this weekend at the soonest.  In the meantime I have to take this step, because I am (rightfully) getting bo...

3 Replies and 4780 Views Website attack  4780  3 Started by  Ron Miles FYI - in the past few days the website has been under some kind of scripted attack. No data has been compromises, and at this point it seems like I have finally shut down all of the vectors they were using. If you happen to notice anything strange on the site, please let me know ASAP.

6 Replies and 5471 Views Nobody here??  5471  6 Started by  twinsrule26 I have been checking in here for the last week and nobody has posted anything. I was wondering if the site was working OK or has everyone gone away on vacation twins.

2 Replies and 4921 Views Forums should be working now  4921  2 Started by  Ron Miles It seemed unusually quiet, and I just finally figured out why. The site logs on the database had grown out of control again (this has happened before), and so the database ran out of room. The net result would be that although the site itself loads fine, no new posts would be able to be added to the database. I apologize for the inconvenience, I have truncated the runaway tables and all is well again.

4 Replies and 5839 Views I'm Back  5839  4 Started by  Ron Miles Hey all, sorry for  my long and unannounced absence. You probably didn't even notice I was gone. In any case, my son was in the hospital for a couple weeks and we are still dealing with the aftermath of that. If you are interested in the details you are welcome to take a look at my personal blog over at I see that I have a fair amount of cleanup to do here, and I will be working on that over the weekend. Please give it a few days, and then if you are still seeing ...

10 Replies and 6231 Views Status Update  6231  10 Started by  Ron Miles So here's the state of things as far as I am aware: 1. Forum moderation is broken with the latest update. The only potential fix is a beta version of the forum software that is specifically noted as not being ready for production. I don't know when a stable version will be ready. That leaves me with the options of either turning off forum moderation, which terrifies me, or leaving it as is, which means new users like Shane will never see their posts go live because I can't moderate them to appr...

9 Replies and 6197 Views Major Software Upgrade this weekend (9/8/2012)  6197  9 Started by  Ron Miles I will be performing a major software update to the site this weekend which involves updating the core software to DotNetNuke v6.2.3 as well as updating the Forum software and some other detail bits. There is a better than even chance that the site will crash during the update (I will have backups to restore from), and in any case the site could be down for maintenance for a significant period of time. I will let you all know when the updates are complete. Thank you for your patience.

1 Replies and 4843 Views Registration Broken  4843  1 Started by  Ron Miles I received an email today from someone who wanted to register for the site and could not. When I looked into it, I discovered that all of the Active Social components that drive the site's registration, profiles, and messaging are giving errors right now.  I am not sure how long it has been broken. I have opened up a support ticket to try and troubleshoot the problem, I have no idea how long it will take to resolve. It is not something that I can fix myself. I apologize for any inconvenience,...

2 Replies and 4966 Views Moving Servers  4966  2 Started by  Ron Miles As many of you have noticed, we have been having stability issues with our web server for several months now. Because we have been unable to satisfactorily resolve the issue with the current server, I am moving the website to a new server today. This involves changing the DNS entry  in order to point to the new name server and web server, which means for a period of time you may be seeing either the old or the new depending upon how quickly the DNS change propagates. In order to prevent any data...

3 Replies and 5127 Views Server Issues  5127  3 Started by  Ron Miles As many of you have noticed, we have been having some stability issues with the server lately. I am keenly aware of this problem, and as you can imagine I am frustrated about the situation. At the moment the best I can do is reassure you that I am working the issue, and hope to have it resolved very soon. I appreciate your patience.

0 Replies and 4456 Views Update to the Books & Reviews module  4456  0 Started by  Ron Miles FYI - I just published an update to the code that drives The Books section of the website, along with the review engine. Theoretically you should not see any difference, the changes were all administrative, but if you do see anything odd or get any errors please let me know.

3 Replies and 6617 Views Forum Moderation  6617  3 Started by  Ron Miles Now that I have completed my updates and fixed all of the styling issues (at least the ones that I am aware of), I have turned on a new feature of the forum software.  Effective immediately, all of the forums (except for the custom forums for Groups) require moderation on any posts from newer users.  There is a threshold at which a user will no longer require to have their posts moderated, but until a user hits that threshold any new post has to be seen and approved by a moderator.  I may or may...

4 Replies and 6098 Views Registration Issues  6098  4 Started by  Ron Miles It turns out that ever since I installed Active Social, no new users have been able to register for the site.  I did not notice that this was happening, it took a couple of emails from a guy who really wanted to join for me to realize there was even an issue.  So, if you are an anonymous user reading this, and you couldn't figure out how to register for the site before, well.... Sorry!  My bad!  It's fixed now, so please register and come join the conversation.
