9 Years ago today I bought the Merlins-Bar domain
14/06/18(Thu)09:51


It's been 9 years since I bought the Merlins-Bar domain and hosting on GoDaddy. The site went live a few weeks later. We've now moved to hosting on my own server. Thanks to everyone who visits and makes this place happen :)

>>34820 Yeah, it sucks :/

In some good news, I see that the Merlins-Bar https certificate updated automatically so at least that now works correctly :D

Bummer :( It must take ages to download let's say GTA5 (77GB atm).

>>34817 This is fibre (FTTC) :(
Sadly to save money they, BT, put the cabinet 2 metres in front of the the phone exchange which is a mile up the road from my house so it's very slow! Most people in the UK can get faster ADSL speeds than I can get with Fibre!!! People in cities get more choice of ISP's too so they can pay less then I do for much faster speeds!!!!! >:(

28/08/18(Tue)15:15

Will you get Fiber now?

28/08/18(Tue)15:07

I work in the morning, so no I haven't noticed it.

28/08/18(Tue)13:09

Had to change ISP again after some speed issues with the previous ISP so was down for a while this morning. I'm effectively back with my previous ISP, but directly this time instead of a resale product under another name. I doubt anyone noticed XD

>>34800 Yes, poor little thing is made to work very hard :/

15/08/18(Wed)13:56

:( Is it the Asus?

15/08/18(Wed)08:45

Router pooped itself again :/ This time all the LAN sockets went down, never had that before. After a reboot it still didn't work so I powered it off for a while and it's booted back up ok. Hopefully it's a one off and not a sign of failure. I don't want to buy another one of these they're expensive, £150! The newer model is £210 :S

All good :D

No issues here.

Oops, another little snafu updating a certificate. Should be sorted for real this time...

03/08/18(Fri)09:58

>>34759 No worries, it should now be automatic so won't be a problem again.

01/08/18(Wed)22:09

All good bro. Was watching a movie so didn't noticed anything.

31/07/18(Tue)22:52

Just has a little issue with renewing the https certificates which meant the site was done for a short period while I redid it manually. Should be ok now. Let me know if you notice any issues.

29/07/18(Sun)19:04

I see! Nicely done!

29/07/18(Sun)13:13

>>34750 It'll take a few minutes for the changes to filter through to all the threads...

29/07/18(Sun)13:12

Hopefully it's sorted now. Let me know if you find a problem.

29/07/18(Sun)12:09

>>34746 All the previous comments need to be rebuilt in the database before that will work. I need to create a script to do it which might take a while, but all new comments will work as expected.

29/07/18(Sun)11:47

why doesn't >>34714 work like >>34744 ?

29/07/18(Sun)11:11

>>34744 Seems good. Links in comments should now open a new window.

29/07/18(Sun)11:10

link test...

28/07/18(Sat)16:23

>>34737 Yes, I kept the test address for it I need it in the future.

28/07/18(Sat)10:50

JC, is the test.merlins-bar.com now the same as merlins-bar.com?

23/07/18(Mon)19:53

sure, cool & thanks!

23/07/18(Mon)17:29

So how about all embedded links posted in comments, except links to other comments in the thread.
I'll add it to my list of things to do :)

23/07/18(Mon)14:55

errrrrrrrrm, all? Well not the youtube ones as they display on the site. But pretty much any other, like this: https://imgur.com/a/amL9V

22/07/18(Sun)22:39

>>34710 Should be possible. Specifically which links are you referring to? Do you mean when someone embeds a link in a comment?

22/07/18(Sun)15:40

JC, when I click on a hyperlink it opens in the current tab. Is it possible to change the code that it opens new tab instead?

13/07/18(Fri)16:35

>>34686 Cheers Oldballs :)

13/07/18(Fri)12:27

Happy Anniversary, and thank you again for keeping this glittering gem afloat

04/07/18(Wed)17:01

>>34656 Nothing's changed except the updated video embedding, but if you have ideas or suggestions then let me know :)

The devil made me do it, and I love her.

So now that you host it yourself, are there any new rules of posting stuff?
