Hello everyone,

We thank everyone who is using the web-based support forums at www.eaglecentral.ca. We've been running this service free-of-charge to the EAGLE community since 2008. It's hard to imagine it's been that long.

We're still running off the original server and it's time for it to be retired so we'll be upgrading the underlying infrastructure. You may see some downtime in the next week or so as we move things around. Please be patient--we're not IT experts and we have many other things to do. But we feel that these web-based forums do provide a unique value to those who use them and we'd like to continue offering them.

Once we're done the EAGLE Central forums should be faster and poised to serve the EAGLE community for many years to come.

Best of the Holiday season to everyone.

Cheers,

James.

An update: You may have noticed the site being down for a bit. But we're back up on our new server and my initial tests seem to be passing with flying colours. Let me know if you see something funky in our forums.

Cheers,

James.

Hi James,

Thanks for moving this forum to a new server, it does seem a lot faster now and I much prefer this version on the forum to the mirror on Element 14!

However, this morning I unfortunately keep getting the "Resource Limit Is Reached" page with the message "The website is temporarily unable to service your request as it exceeded resource limit. Please try again later."

Best Regards,

Rachael

Thanks Rachael,

I had seen that issue last night too. I believe I have figured out what was going on and have tweaked the server settings so we shouldn't see it again (hopefully).

Cheers,

James.

Just an update for everyone. After a week on the new server and making a couple of tweaks the forums are better than ever. The server has proven to be very speedy and reliable thus far and I see no reason to think it will be any different going forward.

Thanks again to everyone for their patience. We're back in business now.

Cheers,

James.

Hi James,

great to hear that all is up and running. Just wanted to thank you
for your work and time in spreading our newsgroups in such a reliable
way. We have also seen different examples.... ;-)

Hi Jamaes

On EagleCental/forums a user has begun inserting attached images into
the message body.

When that posting gets to the newsgroup the raw data of that image is
filling the page.

Compare in the newsgroup
http://www.eaglecentral.ca/index.php/m/164861/3c29f3101bafbc88f771aed168ddc 80f/#msg_164861

That never happened previously so maybe that wasn't enabled previously
It certainly needs removing.

Regards
Warren

He's attaching it in the old (pre-MIME) uuencode/base-64 method. Some
news readers used to handle that, way back in days of yore, but most don't.

Yes, that was UUencoded which still can work but is old. Not sure why the forums reverted to that.

I've re-enabled mime-encoding and tested in the test forum.

For those are too young to remember, UUencoding was the way to transfer files around the internet when you couldn't be sure that the other end would be using the right character set. See Wikipedia if you're interested... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uuencoding

It's years since I last used UUencode.
