At 6am this morning we switched to the new hardware. The switch was successful this time.

For anyone interested in the technicalities, we're now operating on a dual quad-core Dell PowerEdge R410 located in Manchester. It has about twice the power of the previous server, and a fresh operating system.

There could be a few teething problems. If you notice any unusual errors please report them here.
Is this so the admin can VPN in and watch iplayer?

Re: EF hardware upgrade - Saturday 16.Jul.2011 (Update: Now complete)

Maybe in the same context as the missing update mentioned by Ouchboy: Since the hardware switch, the Discussion Forum Overview list on the home page isn't updated any more, no matter what computer or browser I use. The latest post listeded is from July 16, 04:48.

Besides that, ever since the software upgrade a few months ago, said Discussion Forum Overview list has been a mess anyway. The posts of which excerpts were shown hardly ever were the latest ones. And they all were terminated with "…", a clear sign that something was wrong.

It seems like the whole of the home page is not updating properly. There are out of date events still showing as well.

I thought it was only me facing that problem!

I was going to create a thread reporting this issue when I saw this one... I have the same issue, my homepage looks like this:

Is it just me, or is the home page not updating ?

Re: Home Page...

This issue hasn't gone unnoticed up here in EF Towers. Rapunzel is currently growing her hair to allow access to the server.

Thank you for your patience. Normal service will resume eventually

Ha! Ha! My Mother called me once in absolute terror because she'd turned off the internet. A lack of nuclear armageddon told us it was just her Browser which she'd closed...

As long as you don't have to fly to Manchester to turn it off and back on again!

In my defense i can only say that i thought (is that verb think or teach in participle? i ment think in case i got it wrong) the homepage was personal so i might have changed my options. Because in control panel i put the option to view threads for the past 2 weeks

Thanks, the non-updating homepage, together with the extraneous "&hellip" characters, has now been fixed.

They will not embed if https. Remove the 's' from the web address.
