Server Relocation
We are moving most of our servers to a colocation facility with better cooling, power, and network, which should improve uptime in general. This procedure will start on Monday, April 1st at 08:00 (PDT) and should take 3 days to complete, during which our entire project will be unavailable.

Ready or not here it comes!! Hope someone will keep the AP splitters going that Friday so that I can have a full belly when things start.

The announcement on the front page is quite clear - everything is being turned off, unplugged, lots are being packed up and moved, then reconnected, and hopefully will come back to life as though nothing has happened. Here's to hoping....

Please excuse an old man's ramblings -- the Friday that I was speaking of is March 29th, the Friday before the outage.

The most likely scenario is that they will let the queue completely drain over the weekend. This would minimize the pendings in the database and would make a smother transition.

I don't recall ever hearing of Cobal being available on the PET. I learned Fortran and Cobal in college in the early 70's on this

Looks like several versions were.

[but some of those are for the other early Commodore machines, rather than the PET]

Interesting list - I did play around with Pascal and Comal on the C64.

I was mainly a mainframe. I remember starting with COBOL back in 1969 when there were 3 different versions depending on the operating system (TOS - Tape Operating System, DOS - Disk Operating System & OS - Basic Operating system) you used at the time. I've seen it grow from that to the current version as of 4 years ago -- 44 years and it will not die regardless of what the PC world believes.

Back between 1988 & 1990, I did code and testing using COBOL , Assembler & FORTRAN on a HP portable that emulated a mainframe MVS/CICS system that weight about 20 pounds and had a red screen. Awfully hard to read anything on that bad boy, so we hacked it and changed to screen to black with yellow characters.

...and here comes the ol' chestnut ...

how about raising the limits, or preferably removing them to allow us to build up a small cache so that we can continue to crunch over the relocation period ...

once the relocation is complete, re-impose the limits.

cheers

But if the cache limits remain the same, think of the power you'll save during the outage. :)

I suspect the kitties will take a bit of a nappy.
Could do some other projects, but I think I'll just let the ole electric meter get a rest. A few of the slow rigs just might be doing some AP work for the duration...dunno.
Only a couple of hours before the GPUs start to cool down. 100 WUs...LOL. Phhhhhhhhhht.

Meowsigh.
I do miss the days when I was able to cache enough work to run through an outage like this.

Anybody here work on a Basic4 system?
I programmed one 30 some years ago.
Idiot software engineer just refused to give some folks the printer output they desired. Once the word got out that I could reverse engineer his crap.......
Let's just say the traffic to my desk did not let up much.

Had to monitor the refrigeration to keep it running. Had an alarm at my desk if things got too toasty. Hard drives as big as a Yugo. I think they had about a half a dozen platters in them. They were about the size of a small top loading washing machine, actually.

I had to change them out once in a while.......'bout like changing the litter box.

And about as big. They were about 24 inches wide and 18 inches tall, weighed about 20 pounds or more. Had this big handle on the top that you twisted to engage the thing into the drive. And talk about spin-up? You could hear those things winding up for miles around...LOL.

And whilst we are on the subject, anybody ever change the ribbon on a Centronix band printer? That thing wound up like a banshee too......and could spit out a full box of paper in a few minutes.
