Forum maintenance (done)

Posted by ckknight Jan 12, 2009 at 21:33 UTC

Hello, friends.

We're doing some maintenance on the forums system, moving boxes around in the server room and all. We expect the downtime to last no more than a couple hours.

To pass the time, here's a kitty:

Addendum: We're all done.

Downtime again. (Done)

Posted by ckknight Jan 07, 2009 at 17:31 UTC

Hey beautiful people, we're gonna have another downtime today.

Hopefully this won't take too long, but it's always hard to gauge.

We're transferring the DB back to the real DB server, which has been upgraded to a newer OS as well as 64-bit, so we can finally use 8 GiB of RAM instead of just 2 GiB.

Addendum: And we're done and everything went smoothly.

Downtime's over!

Posted by ckknight Jan 06, 2009 at 17:34 UTC

Hello friends.

We've been having some DB issues with wowace and curseforge, so we're going to be doing some tinkering on the DB server.

I'm sure some of you have noticed the long pauses when trying to visit pages on wowace and/or curseforge, and our hope is to fix this issue.

We predict that the downtime shouldn't be more than a few hours, but it's always hard to gauge these things.

We also plan to have another downtime soon to finish the task, though probably not today.

Wait, I'll fix it


We're back up, people. It only took half an hour, which we're very pleased with. There still will be another downtime later, but probably not today.

Packager Enhancements

Posted by Kaelten Dec 28, 2008 at 17:38 UTC

Yesterday we launched a series of enhancements to the packager. Here is a quick rundown of the new features:

  • You can now include a subfolder from mercurial and git repositories as externals.
  • You can now include tags from mercurial and git repositories as externals.
  • You can now specify to use the latest tag of a project as an external.

These features are somewhat embodied in the following example:

       libs/LibStub: svn://
       libs/CallbackHandler-1.0: svn://
           url: svn://
           url: git://
           tag: 1.2
           tag: latest

These features have been tested, however issues may still exist, please notify us immediately if there are any issues.

Also if the examples aren't clear enough let me know ;)
