=== Server Maintenance ===
On 2010-05-20 afternoon, due to sponsor needs, Orfeo had to move a few
steps away in the same datacenter, and was halted twice during a few
minutes. I was not able to warn soon enough to be useful, sorry for
On 2010-05-29 in the morning, while visiting a datacenter with several
users, we will halt Toushirou a few minutes in order to
replace/improve its memory (both because it needs more, and to test if
a complete memory replacement would improve the stability, even if
memtest found no problem on the current memory).
=== Communication ===
On 2010-05-19 Bitlbee was finally stopped. Minbif has replaced it nicely.
In April, we experienced a lot of problems with our XMPP (Jabber)
server. A few weeks ago we installed a fixed version and it proved
very stable since then.
The IRC upgrade is still... postponed :-/.
=== PHP Migration ===
Yesterday, we moved to 5.3, as planned earlier, and things went quite
well. Please note a few things that are now obsolete and will be
deactivated on 2010-09-01:
- $argc / $argv
- "magic quotes"
So please check your code before the deadline.
=== Dico ===
Absolutely needed, we now have an open access dictionnary,
available both on the DICT port, and via web on:
dict/dico text clients are available on Thorfinn and Toushirou.
Happy Birthday DuckCorp ! :-))
