PostDomain name jiggle - possible downtime
by Green Gecko » Fri Sep 06, 2019 4:49 pm

!!!

We are reconfiguring some domain names over the next few days for boring administrative reasons. This may cause outages for up to a few hours one day, day or night. Unfortunately this can't be avoided and cannot be planned because the processes for doing so are archaic and stupid, half automated, half manual, depend on things like the "domino" effect of DNS propogation over the country and ultimately, the world (MWUAHAHAHAHAHAHAH)

So if you can't access GRcade, this is why.

If you experience distress during this time, please consider:

1) Doing some work
2) Playing some games

Thanks for using GRcade. Games & Stuff since 1999 20?? 2008.

PS. Who ever gets first post in this thread after the site is back up wins a prize. This isn't actually just a way for me to monitor when the site is back up. There may not be a prize. The prize is looking forward to the prize.

Seems like a good excuse to get the next GRcade Mass Wank booked in.

Are we all going to watch the same porno? Can we pick one with a good story so it can be like Die Hard on Christmas Eve?

Grotwin's Law - as a GRcade discussion grows longer, the probability of someone mentioning wanking approaches 1.

Reading this thread I now understand the ‘jiggle’ in its title.

The Switch has hit its stride with many excellent games, albeit a lot of them released near each other. I thought it would. Did you?

I can forgive you as long as the downtime is over the weekend.

If it crosses over into a workday then I will hunt you, I will kill you and I will do terrible things to your body.

Well, that's a good idea. Unfortunately for some reason 123-reg completely revoke access to your DNS settings while a transfer is taking place - even though for a while they will still be resolving the domain, meaning there's strawberry float all you can do if for some reason it doesn't transfer over. Annoying but, peeps just Ctrl+R if you desperately need to access GRcade during purgatory.

This is not an investment and there will be no return of or on your Ctrl+Rs

The new DNS is sorted now so when the switch over happens it should be minimal :)*

*I am in no way guaranteeing as this will actually work as the nameservers haven't been updated in 4 years.
