Re: The site is.... Back up

Yes, all member donations stopped. Paypal is being a dingle and I didn't have the effort to figure it out. I made a new paypal.me thing. It is here:

Re: The site is.... Back up

Hi Chibbert, I had to change from the old system because paypal started charging tax, so essentially in my tax bracket, income goes to 1/2. Anywho, we have a new paypal link here: https://r1150r.net/paypaldonate.html

Thanks!

Ok, we are on the new server! Sorry for the delay. I think we are all set now. Try and break it, let me know if you see anything weird. Thanks for your patience all!

Re: The site is.... Back up

Thanks, Doug. The old URL (.org) for this board generates a not-here 404 error suggesting an email to you at webmaster@r1150r.r1150r.net. Emails to that address bounce, of course. Took a new search for me to find the new TLD. Glad to see it here again. David Thanks David. It should be good now, rig...

Re: Test post

Is it worth it to me? No, not really, but I do like the fact we made something useful, like a baby. :) Is it worth it to owners of this old bike? Well, yah - all of that content people have contributed over the years around the maintenance alone is invaluable for some. I like to think of the site as...

Re: Test post

Thanks! I'm still working out some snafus.. the .org component of the site was down, and it should be back up in a day or so..

The host just saw the size of our data base and wants to triple the costs.. [sigh]

Re: Test post

ps there will be some growing pains while I transition the site from the old server to this one. for example, r1150r.org still points to the old one, and r1150r.net points here, but some of the pics and stuff got broken, and I'm looking into see if thats solvable or if I need to continue paying for ...

Re: The site is.... Back up

Also, just post a hello here so I know someone's alive still, especially if you are from outside the US/Canada. I need to verify if the country blocker is working. :)

The site is.... Back up

After much headache, I think I have the site running better than ever. Please let me know if you see anything weird. I'm hoping this less expensive server will work out. It seems pretty snappy so far. Some big changes to mitigate traffic: Pruned 8000 dead accounts and 30K spam messages Added cloudfl...

Re: The December check in thread....

The traffic issue is largely spam. I've attempted many different methods over the years from banning entire countries, IP ranges, DNS stuff, traffic routing/cloudflare, name types, membership criteria... but nothing works. Its spam. Blame the nerds in their underwear with nothing better to do than r...

Re: Just wanted to say thanks!

You're welcome! :) The site is largely a reference repository now. There's lots of good info here. Its been fun to witness its birth, rambunctious teenage years, graceful and fruitful mid life years, and its quiet and lonely elderly years. Thanks to all who contributed their fingertips over these la...
