The boring life of Jerod Poore, Crazymeds' Chief Citizen Medical Expert.

Crazy Meds Talk ver 9.0 is Open for Business

Or stop by the Crazy Meds site and click on the usual link to the forum.

There are just a few boards up for antidepressants, anticonvulsants / mood stabilizers and antipsychotics. Plus some generic forum crap. I'll keep adding boards until I'm satisfied. I figured everyone will need some time to adjust to the new software and play around with all the bells'n'whistles.

Change is bad.

Crazy Meds Talk ver 9.0 is Under Construction

The new software is happy.

As there was little notice from the previous domain host and they suddenly got all tight-assed with the bandwidth, we were unable to download all of the previous forum. Make that we were only able to download a little bit of the previous forum.

So I'm pretty much having to rebuild from scratch.

Everyone gets to register again. Yay!

All those messages - lost to bit heaven.

Life is hard, then you die.

Once I get enough of the various boards created I'll open the forum up to the general public.

At Last the DNS Record Has Been Updated!

Expect the medications section of Crazy Meds to be up within 24 hours.

Why this took so freaking long:

  1. The registrar told me I owed them money. Unfortunately they kept sending the notices to an e-mail address I kept telling them for two fucking years I no longer used.
  2. I had to pay a collections company first. There's nothing more fun than giving a credit card number to someone in prison. Then I get to inform said registrar that the collection account is paid up.
  3. Once the billing depart is satisfied they hand my problem off to their transfer department in the U.K. Now there is a nice seven-hour time difference. So factor in a two-hour turn around time with responses and that's about one e-mail exchange a day.
  4. I would get some vague e-mails from said person at the transfer office.
  5. It's summer, Maddy is visiting, so that means I get nice and ill for a couple of days.
  6. Now I'm supposed to remember the password I used two years ago on that account. Good thing I did.
  7. After all that, the DNS record gets changed today. Two fucking weeks to straighten this out.

Now we can get back to work on the forum. We couldn't do that with the IP address only. The software expected

And Now We're Back Up

The drug information pages are back up. Front Page and ftp are working. I'm not to sure about e-mail just yet.

We'll see how it goes from here.

And We're Back Down Again.

I've opened a ticket.

Hey, we deal with bipolar disorder a lot. One should expect yo-yo-ness. I see the site via the non-propagated address, so I'm guessing it's just some DNS stuff or something. I don't know, but I'm not too worried about it.

Crazy Meds Main Site is Back Up

The main part of Crazy Meds is back on the air. I.e. all the drug information pages are once again available. Maddy and I are working to get the forum back up. My e-mail at Crazy Meds is working again as well. Keep checking here and at the what's new page for further details.
