Yoo Hoo, Disney EchoEars!

The Disney Echo will be down for some time this morning while the database software is upgraded. After the upgrade there should be fewer database errors and the board should run faster, too.

I've decided to postpone the upgrade and downtime for the Disney Echo to late tonight when visitors are fewer than during the daytime, so that I wouldn't be knocking off Disney EchoEars when the updates occur and also so fewer EchoEars will find the Disney Echo being revovated for your future enjoyment.

:)

Thanks, Eric. Last night I was getting a cough and cold so I took a pill and went to bed early instead of making the upgrade. I'll try to upgrade from using a DBM database to MySQL one night this week.

Yoo Hoo, Disney EchoEars!

I'll be working on upgrading the database here at the Disney Echo again late tonight. So, if you try to log on and find that the system is being renovated for your future enjoyment, now you know what's going on.

I hope it won't take more than about an hour or so.

Thanks for the pixie dust and good thoughts!

After working on the database tonight I've figured out why there's a problem in upgrading to the better database system. I'm having lar3ry (of emuck.com) and Sly (of swarf.net) working with me on it and I hope to have things working faster and with fewer database errors soon.

As of now, though, nothing has changed -- except we're closer to getting this fixed.

Thank you all for being patient.

Got your private mousekemessage letting me know about the repairs Rich - I was having connection probs again and tried to stay connected long enough to answer you and let you know it was okay with me and that I would be disconnecting right away, hope I was able to get off the Echo quickly enough for you guys to work on it! I mean, I wanted to get off the Echo right away so you could work on it but also wanted to be polite and reply :blush2:  :bowdown:

Yoo Hoo, Disney EchoEars!

lar3ry will be a new operating system on the Disney Echo's host system, EMuck.com. He plans to start the upgrade around 6:00 AM EST Friday morning (11/7/03).

The install usually takes about an hour (during which time the Disney Echo and all of EMuck.com will be off the internet), with another hour or two to get everything reconfigured back to the way it should be. The timing (early Friday morning) should hopefully keep the downtime from affecting too many people.

And I hope to be working on the Disney Echo's database upgrade again late tonight/early Friday morning, which will require the Disney Echo to be down for a few hours as well.
