Always impressed with people who can break servers in new and interesting ways Cool

Transfers done but I felt under pressure - just have to hope I've done OK Confused

Cheers,
Simon

How is extending the deadline fair on those who got their transfers in?

I could just pick the guys in the break now...

It's the ToC, not the Giro, there's no major prizes, it's just for fun. I made my transfers this morning, I couldn't care less. I'd rather everyone have it fair and be able to make their transfers.

you could do, not a day to rely on points from riders in the break though i don't think Smile

full disclosure:

what happened was that we moved the game over to a new server. two servers in fact: one for the game and one for the database.

that all worked fine but for some reason the RAID controller sorting all the data onto the four discs in the server went haywire and screwed it all up in a way that wasn't recoverable. that's unusual to the point where the tech guy said he'd never seen it before, lucky old us.

the new server's a stopgap ahead of us running two front end servers, load balanced and failed over so that if one breaks the other will still work. that should be up and running next week. typically this failure would have gone unnoticed if it had just waited a few days...

anyway, that's all for now. i'm writing this from a car park somewhere outside newtown in mid wales where i've been sat for the last 2hrs trying to sort it all out. time for wine i think.

should be available on http://109.104.88.11 even if it's not available at fantasy.road.cc - had to switch back to the old server and that takes time to propagate

Been working since about 9:30 last night but put in my Giro transfers then rather than waiting. Luckily I did my TOC transfers that morning as I missed the deadline for the first Stage myself and didn't want to do it again.

Just an observation. Wouldn't it have been wiser to switch servers when the Giro and Tour of Cali had finished rather than doing it mid way through? The site may have been a bit slow but it always worked before.

Non sequitur. Have introduced a greek friend to road.cc Expect lots of hits in Athens in future! Cool
