Legacy Xsanity content has been migrated

We've been able to migrate the eight years (eight years!) of legacy Xsanity posts/stories over to our new site. Comments, too. And now it is certainly bedtime.

Please keep the suggestions and comments coming.

Password problems :-(

Forums: 
Tags: 

Seems we have some password migration issues. And worse, the password reset emails are getting rejected as spam. Web hosting is so much fun.

I'm working on it. In the meantime, you can try to reach me at aaron -- at -- tekserve -- dot -- com.

Update: It appears that passwords didn't quite migrate as hoped. So you should instead use the Password Reset feature to set your password. Check your junk mail for the email...

Welcome to the NEW and IMPROVED Xsanity

Your eyes do not deceive you. Welcome to the NEW and IMPROVED Xsanity. We have a new platform, a new server, and plans for way more. Your logins should still work and all eight years of forum contact has been migrated (I think). Those front page stories from Geeklog haven't made the trip yet. It may take a more few weeks before that happens.

And we launched before the Mac Pro did. ;-)

And I have two people to thank.

One: Joel Samuel of /32 Consulting has provided the server and hosting. Little known fact: we'd been running on an Xserve G4 since our launch over eight years ago. Now, we're on some *cloud* server with a control panel and stuff. Not only is it fast, it actually will work. Now that's an improvement.

Two, and most importantly, Trevor "abstractrude" Carlson of Thumbwar — but better known as "that guy who knows more about Xsan than God" — was the number one proponent of modernizing Xsanity. Without his encouragement, we'd be still getting there, someday...
