Hi Otto,

Don't worry. I've had it with this provider :!:
kvcd.net is being transfered to another provider as we speak.
I'm currently uploading the full site to the new provider, and I'll be closing the forum later so I can backup the database.
I don't have a time schedule yet, but I don't think it will be tonight.
But tomorrow, for sure I'll lock the forum so I can backup the database, and upload it to the new provider.
Stay tuned at www.kvcd.net for the latest news, if you see that the forum crashes again.
It's been 3 days in hell, since we moved to this provider :!:

Yes, that happens because the domain name KVCD.Net is still not set as the host name for the machine. It's a "cookies" issue.
I still have a hard link to 209.63.57.146
Hopefully, late tonight I can make the final change, and then when you read a post, it will change color ;)

BTW, the server where KVCD.Net is now hosted, is a FOUR P4 processor machine :D
So it Kicks A** :lol:

Hi Karl,
Damn 8O , good luck with this one, too.
Seems like it's headed straight to Jamaica right?
Hopefully, just a little rain again :)
Cheers

Frances caused between 5 to 16 billion dollars to Florida now, mostly flooding.
5 million people have lost their homes and flooding has destroyed
buildings like hospitals, schools, business, etc. and 10 people died.
With Ivan coming so soon behind Frances, the destruction will cause more
lives. :(

rds_correia 09-07-2004 05:16 PM

Those are indeed very sad figures you gave us BP :(
But the saddest thing was the lost of 10 lives.
Hopefully this won't happen with Ivan.
Good luck and get shelter.
Cheers

Kwag,

did Ivan miss you on the low side? Looks like this will be a bad one for anything that gets in its path,

Colin.

kwag 09-09-2004 10:47 AM

Hi rhino,

Ivan passed WAY south of us. About ~500 miles, so we didn't feel anything.
That monster looks like it's headed towards Jamaica, and then who knows where :!:

rhino 09-09-2004 10:50 AM

Our neighbour is from Jamaica and so most of her family is still there. Worrying times for her,

kwag 09-13-2004 06:31 PM

DAMN :!: :x :x

Heck Kwag PR had a good run, hopefully it will be nothing more than a tropical storm - anyway you and the family keep your heads down,

cheers,

jorel 09-13-2004 09:28 PM

Kwag,

i don't know the power of that stormy cos i never saw it, here it never happen.....more summer than winter like paradice ! 8)

cool option to forced vacation:
take your wife and kids, close the doors and "windows" and came to my house in Brasil until it all pass !

.....and don't forget the beers! :wink:

kwag 09-13-2004 09:30 PM

Thanks rhino :)

This season is really wild :!:
By tomorrow, we'll know for sure if it will go right over us.
But looking at the projected track, it seems it will. 8O
Even if it's a tropical storm with winds at ~40Mph, it will still bring a lot of rain, and that's not very good.
If wind forecasts by tomorrow are in the range of 50+ miles per hour, then I'll have to climb on the roof and take down my satellite dishes :x

Hey thanks Jorge :D
That would be very cool :cool:
Hopefully we will make it one day ;)

kwag 09-14-2004 09:19 PM

Well, seems we're about to get hit in the next 8 hours or so, and that means no power once the wind blows away power lines (hopefully not!), and of course, no internet connection either :x
:x

See'ya later :!:

Hello Karl:

Wish you lots of luck, take care of yourself and let us know how you fare the storm......

Otto

kwag 09-14-2004 10:44 PM

Thanks Otto :)

Everything is too quiet here 8O
The damn storm slowed down to 8MPH, and that's BAD :!:
That's bad because it could increase to hurricane strength by tomorrow, and that makes things worse.
Already it's bad enough as it is, because the forecast is that it will be about 12 hours of tropical storm winds ( at least ~50+ MPH ) over us, and that means MANY inches of rain, on top of the nasty winds.
We are supposed to start feeling the effects in the early morning hours.

kwag 09-14-2004 11:16 PM

Hey Otto, maybe you'd like to come down here now, so you can do some surfing (real surfing, not web surfing ) :mrgreen:

Take a look at the tide info (in bold) 8O
