We'll be 'moving' soon... (as the announcement says ;) )

Just an FYI that the site will be undergoing a little "change" sometime in the next day or so and shouldn't be unavailable for too long... If we get wind of exactly when and for how long (not too long i'd imagine)- we'll pass that info on :)

:lovesign:

server will be offline for a few hours while we move hosting. :) so the forums will not be accessable for a bit

w00t! No offense to Terry but we are weaning off the Kineda Tit! :clap:

Terry has graciously hosted NorCal VW for these last few months but the time to stand on our own has come. In light of the increasing bandwidth usage, and costs associated with it, we are checking out of the Kineda Hotel and into a luxury penthouse suite here :baller:

There will be a "beer" button on the site where when you press it a hot girl (or guys... depending) brings you beer.

When I run a website, I run it right! :D :drink:

ya... things are jacked up...

All I can think is that it is some freaky DNS issue. Cause the images are here and if you view them individually they work.

I am going to wait for DNS to propagate longer and see if it stops messing up. it's like its loading the page form my server, but trying to load images from the old server which has been turned off.....

I'm interested in what all changed, as I'm going to school for this kind of system management stuff... Things definitely look different...

well since your interested I will give you the technical reason of what happened...

a) we switched servers :)

b) I setup the new server a smidge wrong.... I prevent hot linking on my web server so people can't reference images from this site and waste bandwidth. Anyway I didn't allow the site itself to reference it's own images.... Yes I a stupid I had a typo I was allowing norcalvw.net to reference images and not norcalvw.com So I fixed the config file for the webserver and restarted and now all is cool

sorry everyone for the stupidity on my part, I suck and stuff :OWNED:

Nawww, I was attributing it to a DNS thing, you should have quietly fixed it and we wouldn't have known the difference. My head hurt so bad last night I didn't care.

I'd say for a middle of the week change of locales, and the overall down time being hours, not days, YOU ROCK SIR :clap:
