Server Upgrade, tonight, June 25th, 9pm Eastern time
« on: June 25, 2019, 08:02:39 AM »
Greetings All,

FYI, our host is upgrading our server tonight and the site will be down for less than an hour beginning at 9pm eastern time.  Rivers and I have been testing the new server and it is VERY fast.  You'll like it.

Cheers,
Slack

Slack and Rivers: Thanks for doing this, and of course for all your other work behind the scene and under the hood that keeps WC running so smoothly.

Yes, thanks, Rivers and Slack, for keeping the site up and running in good order, and better all the time.  You're creating a community, which is pretty cool.  Thanks!

Thank you Johnm. Nobody could predict where we'd all be when this started some 20 years ago. I'm convinced we'll be around for a long time. Unless the server migration crashes one minute from now...

Thank you Stuart for your participation and encouragement!

Yes, really, thank you John for your participation and for providing such high quality content.  We're very lucky to have you as a resident pro.

I think it has been a fun project for us all... the genre deserves the lavishing.

Just to confirm, we are now fully migrated across to the new server. Any issues, comments, etc., please feel free to post them here. From where I'm sitting it's running noticeably quicker.

Some characters in pre-migration posts are not displaying, instead the server is replacing them with a ?

It seems to affect single quotes/apostrophes, double quotes, dashes, and maybe others.

We've reported it to our service providers and they are investigating.

Here is an example, note the ?'s embedded in the title and also substituted within the posts: https://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=11997.msg106401#msg106401

No ???s for viewers in Scotland. Maybe they fell into the Atlantic?

Interesting. So you're not seeing, for example, "Sleepy John was ? quite literally ? a legend", in David's first post in that thread, or "SOTM ? June 2019 ? Someday Baby / Worried Life Blues" in the title?

Trick question on my part, I'm looking at the raw converted data as well as the browser output.
