So very sorry for the delays!

Non-Hockey Chatter / TMLfans Server Changes
« on: July 12, 2012, 09:58:05 AM »
I believe that our server hosting company will be moving us to our new server today or tomorrow.  We might have some downtime, as well as potentially some lost data (posts) while they backup and make the switch to the new one.

Cheers, Rick

Non-Hockey Chatter / TMLfans Server Upgrade
« on: July 03, 2012, 08:19:08 PM »
As many of you know, we've had some major outages in the past 10 days.

The TMLfans server is many years old, so I just signed for a huge upgrade. It's a brand new server with all kinds of power.  It's $150us monthly, but I'm confident we can make that through our advertising networks.

So sometime this week there'll be a migration.  Shouldn't be too much downtime to do it.

Cheers, Rick

Non-Hockey Chatter / Server Issues
« on: June 27, 2012, 12:28:52 PM »
Big apologies for all of the glitches and downtime the last week.  It's getting worse, not better, and I'm on our webhost provider daily.  And they charge $95/hr to troubleshoot.

Hopefully we get resolution quickly - I'm hoping to go to the cottage for a week starting Friday.

Non-Hockey Chatter / TMLfans server help?! Please?

Are any of you experienced in web servers?  We pay $125/mth for a non-managed server. Maintenance/repairs to the server run $90/hr.

Anyone out there comfortable logging into the root of our server and tweak some repair issues?  It's a Linux/apache box that has full WHM access for the root, and Cpanel for our accounts on the server.

We need to upgrade Perl and find/fix shatever is choking all system resources..

Anyone experienced willing to donate a little time??

Logged in to our main advertising agency.  This month we're making about $60 less than our advertising agency brought in for us.  My wife will SHOOT ME for dipping into the shallow well of savings.  Oh well, she'll eventually get over it...

Non-Hockey Chatter / Rubik's Cube
« on: June 01, 2012, 09:11:43 AM »
I vaguely remember back 25+ years ago, I used to have a few Rubik's Cubes.  I read a hints book and I was soon solving the Cube in 20-30 seconds consistently.  The greats at it solve it in less than 10 seconds.

Anyway, when we were at the cottage last weekend, my son picked one up.  He learned how to solve it on his own (after a few hours). I grabbed it from him and would get it 3/4 done, but couldn't remember the final moves.

I think I'll grab one at Walmart today.  I need to be kicking my 16 yr-olds ass at Rubik's Cube.

Anyone else have memories of playing with them?

I'm with CBC News Toronto. We are looking for a long-time Leafs fan/season-ticket-holder today, to react to Burke's news conference.
Can you recommend someone to us please? Preferably in Toronto.
Many Thanks!

Non-Hockey Chatter / Okay, I need help on downloading...
« on: March 22, 2012, 03:11:03 PM »
I know someone here once explained to me how torrents and downloading shows or movies works, but I'm dumb as a brick.  I need a step-by-step tutorial as well as good website places to go grab tv shows and old movies.  Help! 
(i should say that I've downloaded utorrent, but don't know what to do with it)

Non-Hockey Chatter / Homosexuality in Sports
« on: March 06, 2012, 09:26:26 AM »

Not sure if this has been brought up - I'm sure it has - but I'm really happy that the Burke family is putting this out there.  There has got to be a fair number of gay hockey players who are too fearful to share...

Non-Hockey Chatter / Video work
« on: February 24, 2012, 04:13:57 PM »
Hey, does anyone here put together videos?  For Youtube?

I'm going to try using a green screen and transpose another background in.  Wondering what the cheapest camera is that would do it.  I've got the software (Sony Vegas and Adobe After Effects) and the green screen fabric...
