Re: What would be your first custom block?

I hope that if we have custom blocks that these will be more accessable and smaller to download than usual 3D models with locators.... I think of having a smaller standard block set per environemnt, but with the ability to twist, rotate, stretch, morph and mutate and mix what there is so that the nu...

Re: TMX down for backup / server move

We have kindly been offered temporary hosting while our actual host finds us a server. (or else we find a new actual host). So thank you to http://www.lucrasoft.nl of The Netherlands for allowing us to use their server and bandwidth for a short time! They are beyond cool for doing this! :cool: Witho...

Re: TMX down for backup.

We were hopeful of getting the new server today. Since we were told it was taking time because they do not have the server we wanted on their site and they have had to ship one in from another datacenter. But that was days ago, so unless the server is being shipped in from Brazil ? :ftw: Remember, w...

Re: TMX down for backup.

For the read only state, only Rix can do that for United side as he is the owner of the United codebase. Hopefully the server won't be too much longer and it then read-only wont matter.

Re: TMX down for backup.

We did consider trying some kind of read-only mode during the backup, but the small % chance that this might cause a problem with taking the backup (ie making it unusable or corrupt) means that the risk is not worth it. The most important thing in the last 24hrs has been securing the data. Why? Beca...

TMX down [26th Aug: TMX now up]

Hi everyone. We are sorry to say we have to take TMX offline again for a short time. We are doing a backup of the entire site and databases ready for a server move. The move is not our choice, our host is moving to a new datacenter, and we want to have our own copy of the site, which is over 30GB in...

Re: TMX is gaining strength

We are transferring the files & site data, but we are limiting the speed we do it so not to 'upset' our old hosts during this process by OMG generating traffic! :| And I agree with Blah, tomorrow evening is hugely optomistic. Wednesday or Thursday is more sensible for the outlook. Thanx to you all f...

Re: TMX might be back by the end of the week (05-05/11-05)

Right, looking at the status of the new server build, I cant see it being ready for tonight which means I dont think we will see tmx until next week. If by some miracle they get the server ready for us by the end of today then we would be able to crack on with bringing the site back online over the ...

Re: TMX might be back by the end of the week (05-05/11-05)

There seems to be some rummour and miss-information about, so I will clear this up... The host (US based) did not panic, they just have no intention to provide the service they advertise, or in fact anything much like it. Our package had a monthly transfer limit in GB, but before we are anywhere clo...

If things continue to go (reasonably) smoothly, we might be back by the end of the week.

Re: TMX Down? (The problem -> see startpost)

Hi everyone, we are soon moving to a new host. Unfortunetly getting that kind of thing sorted takes alittle bit of time.

If things run smoothly from now it will only be a matter of days, if things dont run so smoothly it will be alittle longer.
