• Just like the night thread.. For the daytime while at work, home, school, whatever.

    Watching Elmo with the kid right now and checking emails and forums.


  • boom whats up party people.

    site's finally back, up, running, everything in good shape.. decided not to bother with the posts from the past few days i can recreate them in less time that it takes to try to save the data.

    coffee time


  • FINALLY..

    dad-forums.com is starting to make some progress.. Trying to stay minimal but with what I'm seeing in my head.. little detail changes

    imported posts by hand from the other server copy/pasting a bunch to get some thread in for testing. no more db horseplay.. time to seed content, work on visuals, etc..

    baby steps

    Cool, appreciate it.. Long way to go. I still haven't really started messing with the .TPL files much but I'll be jacking them up in Dreamweaver soon enough lol trying to use as much css and as little images as possible..

    I just ran a GT Metrix on the site.. not bad for no cloud flare or anything like that, no optimizations yet.. just out of the box w/ the minor theme changes.

    If you ever decide to work on any of those items, please consider submitting a pull request 🙂 glad to know we're doing pretty okay though 😛


  • I'm still thinking of using NodeBB perhaps.

    Currently I'm using the IPS Suite (Invision Board). After trying to get NodeJS (Socket.IO) to communicate successfully with IPS ... and having less and less luck ... this solution looks a little better.

    shrugs

    Maybe someday I'll think of something that'll have a need to use IPS and NodeBB.

    I fixed the optimize image one cause all i needed to do was a re-save 🙂 got 0% extra for it lol..

    CloudFlare demo went so-so.. I don't think it's going to be worth the hassle since it's already a cloud-based service.. redundancy maybe but speed wasn't worth it so I deleted the post i started 🙂

    @OutlawedOffroad -- we use CloudFlare on our end. NodeBBs cannot be accelerated by CloudFlare, as they do not proxy web sockets correctly.

    Support has even said they won't, and if they did, it would only be for paid plans, so boooo...

    That solves that.. I noticed immediately it was a web socket issue after all the hassle last week with it on CentOS. Figured better to just unscrew that lightbulb and move on.

    Just got home from taking the kid to the doctor office.. Some batshit crazy lady freaked out in the waiting room after she lost a verbal confrontation with me.. I guess her husband is a doormat. I'm not. Old school rocker here and I call it like it is, she wasn't used to that lol.

    Cold enough here in NY I'll pass on a more northern location.

    I was born in Florida so this is already completely unnatural for me!
