  • bbssystem.com is down for a little while.


    BTW, if anyone is trying to get on bbssystem.com, it will be down for a little while. I updated the kernel and a ton of packages but I couldn't remotely reboot it successfully so I have to wait for a monkey to physically power cycle it for me. I have no idea where I am in the "queue", so... It could be anytime now, or up to 24 hours.

      Nope, I goofed. I switched to runlevel 0 from root so I could reboot the new kernel I installed, but that killed the xinetd (along with my ssh connection) so networking is down and it's probably waiting for input from the console (it's a headless rackmount server) so I put a request in for a monkey to walk over and press the reset button. I wasn't thinking.

      I forwarded the bbssystem.com domain to this thread so hopefully that will help a little while we wait

        Did you do a Chkconfig --list to see what run level does what? Hmm, maybe thats just a fedora command. A Pretty handy one though!

          I added an rc script for runlevel 0 to swap kernels and reboot after all of the halt scrips ran. I just forgot that I wasn't sitting on the console like I normally am so I wedged myself. It happens... once or twice

                Yup, the chat server is down too.

                Tuckerfan, Do you have a single archive of all of the files? I can either setup an FTP site for you to upload it, or I can download it from an FTP server, or if the website is still up, I can just crawl everything off it. If you want to get fancy, I can setup a Samba server/NFS server and you can tunnel in and mount one of my exports. Whatever is easier for you -- just let me know.

                  I've got a single zip file of the whole mess, but I've no idea of how to do FTP. I managed to find the site where it was originally hosted, but the guy's pulled the files down.

                    How big is the .ZIP? If you can manage to email it, just email it to:

                      It's about 1 gig. I'll give it a shot emailing it to you in a bit.

                          If you ever need a mirror let me know - all my systems are Sun Sparc but php and mysql support are in place. I already host about 90 domains so one more emergency backup won't hurt. About the telnetchat tool - had you looked at phpchat? I have several instances running and it's pretty much painless. Islandmele.com is one such but you have to like Hawaiian music a lot :-)

                            I think it's on the way. I couldn't send it using my regular mail client, so I'm trying to send it via gmail's webmail, but I'm not sure if it's going or not. It says it's sending it, but it also said that the document contains no data.
