25th Oct '11Downtime todayby JSB
An RCD supplying power to the Captain's room tripped earlier today, causing the server to shut down until it could be reset. This took several hours, as the porters did not know the location of the device. Fortunately, Neil Talbott found it, and the server came back online at about 21.30.

Whilst the server was offline, emails sent to mailing lists, including those for individual committee members,may have been lost.
25th Jul '10Downtimeby bjg
The server is begin relocated to the captain's room tomorrow morning, which means it will be switched off at some time for some duration. During this period the website will be down, and emails sent to mailing lists will be delivered once it is turned on again.
7th Jan '09Downtimeby bjg
The electricity people are about to do something - I wasn't clear what - so the server will be down for about half an hour in a very short time.
8th Dec '08Downtimeby bjg
The website and email lists will be down briefly tomorrow (Tuesday) as I move room. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
29th Sep '08Recent changesby bjg
Over the past few months, following the purchase of our new server, the website has been entirely overhauled behind the scenes. In order to make it easier to make large improvements and so that more than one person can make them, the site's architecture has become almost unrecognisable, but our most immediate aim is that it should appear exactly the same as before. This is certain not to be the case, so please let me know about any problems you find even if you've told me before. In fact, if you're keen, please go looking for problems and then tell me.

A huge thank you to Martin Peck for the enormous amount of time and effort he's put into this.
13th Jun '08Potential downtimeby bjg
I forgot to warn the Trinity computing office about bumps, so there's a chance that I'll exceed my daily quota, in which case the website will be down for a few hours. Many apologies in advance for any inconvenience caused.
24th May '08Webserver Upgradeby mcp
Bryn and I are attempting to upgrade the web server later on today.
It would be helpful if people could avoid uploading new photos for the remainder of the day.
There will most likely be a little bit of disruption, hopefully we can keep this to a minimum. Definitely aiming to be fully up and running by Monday. (11 replies...)
7th Apr '08Power cutby bjg
We had a power cut in Portugal Street earlier, hence the downtime.
3rd Mar '08Brief downtimeby bjg
I'm about to turn the server off for a minute so that I can change which socket it's plugged into in my room. Sorry for any inconvenience!
2nd Mar '08Photo size limitby mcp
We've increased the limit in the size of pictures being uploaded to the gallery. It previously didn't allow pictures bigger than 2MB. Should allow up to 16MB now....

Any problems with this, let Bryn and me know.
15th Dec '07Long-term problem solvedby bjg
I've been away for the last week, so I've no idea how long we've been without email and database access... The cause was a problem we've had since April with one of our hard drives repeatedly filling up unexpectedly. Hopefully this is now fixed.

Sorry for the inconvenience in the meantime!
29th Nov '07Downtime this morningby bjg
No idea what happened this morning - symptoms are as if we had a power cut, but who knows. (1 reply...)
27th Sep '07Various issuesby bjg
You'll have noticed various mishaps recently. Brief downtime earlier this week was caused by a housemate racing kettles. Downtime over the last couple of days was due to my network point being quarantined. We're up and running again, but I need to convince college that our security is up to scratch. Multiple emails are also being received from emails sent to multiple @fat addresses - I've got a pretty good idea what's going on but need to make college happy before I can deal with that. Any other problems, let me know...
12th Sep '07Email problemsby bjg
If you've tried to send emails via firstandthird.org since 6 September then you'll have noticed that they've been bounced back to you. This should now be fixed, so let me know if you have any problems.
23rd Apr '07Adding photos to galleryby bjg
The gallery had stopped accepting pictures, not sure why yet, but maybe due to recent software upgrades. In particular, the broken function was the one that enabled you to upload zip files, so I've temporarily disabled that while I look into the problem. This means that you should now be able to add jpegs as before. (2 replies...)
28th Mar '07Website downtimeby mcp
Just to let people know that we might be taking the site down for a few hours tonight to do some maintenance. May not be necessary, not sure yet.

Something (as yet unknown) is causing the site to run a bit slowly - due to the web server getting stuck trying to respond to a number of requests and thus gobbling up all available memory and CPU etc. (9 replies...)
20th Mar '07Michell Cup pointsby bjg
Results pages for Lent and May bumps now include a bottom of page summary of Michell Cup points earnt in that competition. This will probably be more useful for calculating points earnt in the future than looking at those earnt in the past, but they're there anyway!

I've just had to make a couple of tweaks to deal with the (pointless for this purpose) years without women and/or bumps charts. If anything else appears to be broken, please let me know!
5th Mar '07News and Announcementsby bjg
Apologies for the temporary absence of the News and Announcements section - I couldn't think why it looked so empty... There's an important item up now!
27th Feb '07Photo Gallery Tweakby mcp
Inspired by Bryn's recent innovations, I have tweaked the photo gallery so that you can navigate between newly added photos using the yellow navigation arrows above each picture. (Previously these arrows would navigate the photos sorted by crew so it was awkward to see just pictures added since your last visit. You'll probably notice what I mean if you use the 'recent pictures' page of the gallery.) Any objections / bugs / suggestions for further changes would be gratefully received. Oh, and if anyone wants to view them all in order, here's the start.
25th Feb '07Boat informationby bjg
As part of the never-ending struggle to make the wealth of information on this website more readily-available, I've added a page with a list of the club's boats. This can be accessed from the menu by selecting 'the Club' and then 'Boats', or directly here. From there you can click through to view a boat's history (as previously accessible from crew lists) and its results in the same style as for a rower.

One of the consequences of this is it has become much more apparent how much information is missing... Please let me know about any gaps that you can fill in!
