BCTS Hardware Struggles

We're still wrestling with a stable configuration of our hardware to host BC. We hope to have something up tonight so it can be tested when traffic is low in the middle of the night for us.

 

The failure last night of the previous configuration resulted in some database corruption so there will be some comments lost but not as bad as it could be. If worse came to worser, we still have the Saturday night backup but we do have most of Monday, too.

 

Sorry about the delay. We're ordering new hard drives so that we can keep the system running until it is possible to upgrade to complete new hardware.

 

Please be patient, we're running on caffeine and aggravation for four days now.

 

Hugs,

Erin, Piper, Cat, Sephrena et al.

We're Back! BCTS, that is!

Many, many thanks to Piper for about 14 hours of hard work! We are up and running on a different server. Now all we have to do is acquire a new server to replace poor Magda and go through this again! No, wait...

Hugs,
Erin

BC is down with hardware problems

BCTS is down with hardware problems. We are going to temporarily move BC to one of our other servers, this may take most of the day. Please don't just sit and click on BC, it's going to be at least noon and maybe later than 3p.m Pacific time before the site comes back up. And there may be DNS problems when it does, so please be patient.

 

Most of our other sites are still up, Stardust here, TGFiction.net, StoryPortal.net and several others.

 

Hugs,

Erin

BC is back up

BC is back up. Blogs, forums and the list of recent comments are not back on the front page yet but should be soon.

 

Hugs to all,

Erin

Stardust is Back!

Through the efforts, mostly of Piper, Stardust is back. :)

Sapphire and I helped but everyone should give Piper a nice round of applause.

 

Hugs,

Erin

Short Story Month Coming Up - Theme for Challenge This Year

February is Short Story Month here at BigCloset and Stardust when we challenge everyone who cares to try to write and post a short story. This year the theme is going to be "Second Chances" which could also be phrased as "Starting Over" or even "New Beginnings". You get the idea. In keeping with the theme, we're going to allow short story month to last TWO months on TWO sites! So from now until the end of February, get your short stories posted at BigCloset and Stardust.
