Move Imminent

So we finally narrowed down a replacement ISP.
We are moving to business class cable provided by Time Warner (static ip as usual).
The server will be moving in with me and this basically means almost 24/7 tech support.

The bad news this is going to cost me quite a bit of money.

So if you are a free account be prepared for a change to quotas and bandwidth throttling.
(Especially if you’ve never donated to
I apologize for the upcoming change but free rides don’t last forever.
(At least not without some change to the ride.)

So if you’re interested in not having those applied to your account I would seriously consider
contacting me. As it is right now around 95% of the users haven’t contributed anything to the
operations of the server. You know who you are and so do we if you don’t want this applied
and wish to move off the server, I will of course assist you.

Sorry again for the downtime but as far as the reliability we’ve done pretty good for 10 years.
This was the first major outage we’ve had to date.
(Sure we’ve had the occasional service interruption for a hour or two randomly but that’s been rather rare)

I’ll be posting more info on the move as it gets closer to happening.

Update on Connection Issues

The tech finally finished work on our DSL.
He had to change our physical phone connection three times to an unused line on the pole.
As far as reliability is concerned it “should” be better than what we have been going through.
Some time this month we will be moving server locations and possibly a different carrier.
More info will be provided once we figure out which one to go with.

Sorry for the downtime folks but sadly these things happen on occasion.

(The server is running fine just to let you know!)

Connectivity Issues

So you have probably noticed that Inexistence has been going up and down like a yo-yo lately.
I’ve been posting notices on our Facebook, Google+, and my Twitter feed about it but I can finally post here.

It’s not the server it’s the internet connection.
We have a Cincinnati Bell technician coming out today (01/09/2012) at 9 AM between 12 and 4 PM to try and fix the issue.
Be prepared for some downtime while they scratch their head attempting to fix it.

Keep your fingers crossed that they can.

This is all for now.

Updates 12-22-2011

So I downgraded from the svn version of z-push 2 alpha to the stable z-push 1.5.6-954.
It fixes iOS sync issues (basically 100% worthless to even try and use the other version.)

So if you’re using push services you will probably have to once again re-add the exchange account.

I also did a svn pull of round cube tonight.
Did an apt-get upgrade of the following:
dovecot libperl-dev libperl5.10 libsoup-gnome2.4-1 libsoup2.4-1
perl perl-base perl-doc perl-modules perl-suid

pure-ftpd got an upgrade tonight as well.
mod_cloudflare was updated.

Additionally I got to update my iPhone and push notifications still work yippee!

So I finally got to catch up with all the WordPress updates.
Every site I manage is now running WordPress 3.3.

All plugins are up to date…

I also did a apt-get upgrade and dovecot of course was updated.
svn pull on roundcubemail had some changes…

So the updates end.

Swamped 12-08-2011

Yes I am aware there are several WordPress sites I manage on Inexistence that are in
need of some updates. Namely theme updates and some code tweaks.

I will be getting to this once the massive amount of computers I’m repairing
dwindles back to something I can manage.

Within this past week alone 5 rather (in sad shape) Windows computers have graced my workstation.
Dead lines on the repairs have really sucked all my administration time away from Inexistence.

So once again when things die down I’ll be back to update your WordPress stuff.
Bare with me it shouldn’t take too long…

Hiatus 11-18-2011

I will be out of town for a bit as I’m helping a friend move back to New Orleans.
I will be fielding any support issues if I can (depends upon wireless / cell signal).

Just a heads up for everybody.
I’ll post a lot of pictures when I get back…

Updates 11-14-2011

So I installed z-push-2 from svn tonight.
You should probably re-add your account on your mobile device to pick up the new features.
(ActiveSync 14.0 supported now.)

New roundcubemail svn pull as well tonight.

I also bumped up the max supported connections per ip for imap connections.
Hope you folks are enjoying stuff still.

This is all…

Router Damaged

So late last night we had a storm of epic proportions which caused quite a bit of flooding to occur.
While the server is fine it fried our network router / switch entirely.

I brought over my secondary repeating router to fill in the service gap for now.
We really need to get / replace the current router with a different one as this is only a stopgap solution.

If you are a current user of inexistence and enjoy our services then I please ask you to donate
any amount to help fix this massive issue.
