LMGDFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No, the real issue is that they're switching hosts and the old host is not being helpful in transferring the domain and where it points to. they sent me an email since it was in my name but it went to an address that no longer works so I didn't get it but i've talked to the new webmaster and I thought everything would be ok by now, but I dunno

Proph should sue because the hosting site is making it look like she hasn't paid the bill which is not true and she's losing money every day RO is down. :( The host site is mad because she's moving RO to a better host. Apparently, RO was their biggest and most popular site to host and they don't want to lose it.

I don't understand all about how websites work (I don't have one) but this is part of what JJ told me. I hope Proph can work it out soon. A day without RO is like a day without sunshine. :sad:

thanks for that fumus coz you make it sound like the rest of us don't do no damn work on the site!

Yea it's not the webmaster or anyone's fault from the staff...it's the host that screwed up big time. Damn them for screwing RO over...*boots them* :p

OK, first off? Deb devoted a LOT of time to RO while she was with us. More than most people are able to commit. She also had equipment that the rest of us don't have for creating videos. I know that was likely one of your favorite parts of the site Fumus. IT only stands to reason that you wouldn't like it as much without them. I don't appreciate that comment though, seeing how hard the rest of the staff works, it's hardly the type of thing that makes them proud of what they do.
You know I like you and I got no issues with you, dude, but I just think you could have been a little more tactful about something that we spend hours upon hours on for no pay. RO doesn't make enough right now to cover our basic bills. I have to put my own money into paying for the dedicated server that we're now on. We don't have to do this but we do because we like making other people happy.
As JJ said, it also makes it sound like the current staff does no work at all. Hardly the case. JJ is working on RO stuff almost all the time. Tangy busts her ass. Jace is on the forums doing his job daily, and as for me, I'm spending all day every day on a new layout to give the place a new look for the off season. A few here can tell you how that's going.
Deb did a lot for the site, but just because she's gone it does not invalidate the work that everyone else is doing.

As for the hosting site in question, I've threatened legal action. It is domain theft. This will be solved shortly guys, no worries.

RO wasn't the biggest for the whole host, just the biggest on the server, (and a few other servers mind you.) We're one of their top sites and they're being bitchy about us leaving.

We've had major issues, and our old company would not change the roddickonline.com name to point to the new server. I'm looking into legal options, but for now, sometime in the next 48 hours http://www.roddickonline.net should begin functioning for everyone. Sorry about this again. I've also been promised new video by Tuesday

I'd love it if everyone out there could do me a favor and post this anywhere they can think of that Andy fans may lurk. Messageboards, your email sigs, anything.

Thanks for the support all

What the heck is wrong with RO? :retard: I went to the site to update some stuff and it wasn't there anymore. Poor Proph; I wonder why she's having all these problems keeping the site up? :sad:

01-06-2005, 03:12 PM
I dunno Tangy:shrug::confused::scratch: It's been like this for a few days though.

That can't be right, I just went there yesterday and everything was in order. Maybe it's because I didn't wipe my cache out.....well, anyway, I hope Proph can sort it out. It really sucks that this site host is being such a bitch to her. :mad:

Deboogle!.
01-06-2005, 03:19 PM
yeah, no, it was not ok yesterday... maybe a couple days ago it was ok (whenever I found those 2003 Wimby pics, I guess it was working ok)... I thought all the problems with the host got taken care of :confused:

This is just domain theft. pure and simple.. good luck with it, proph.

Fumus
01-06-2005, 08:16 PM
I went on it today and it's some other site now.

01-06-2005, 08:18 PM
I'm sure proph will figure it out

Flushing_Ace
01-06-2005, 08:48 PM
Looks like the domain expired on the 4th so I don't think it's necessarily theft. She better renew it before someone gets the chance though.

J. Corwin
01-06-2005, 09:09 PM
Proph is finding a way to renew the domain name right now.

BREAKING NEWS ;): Having a server update and RO will be up shortly. :cool:

Éowyn
01-07-2005, 11:31 PM
it's coming! just gotta give me time i can do some on my dads cmp but then have to edit on mine and it's a nightmare i'm trying to save the money tobuy myself a whole new comp it's awkward, but it will come and when it does you'll have a huge load of it! i have shit loads of videos waiting to be done, but pretty much until i can buy the equipment or new computer it's gotta wait, sorry i know it's frustrating but believe me it is far more frustrating for me coz i'm the one who has everyone asking for it.

Fumus
01-08-2005, 03:59 AM
Ok well, I am just saying I think I will probably get the equipment and make some. I will even dub some comentary over it making like a sports center thing, and I will put some music on....ohh it will be tight..lol..just wait and see what Fumus has in store.

One more question. I tried to download the videos, but their all exe files. For example: ttp://www.roddickonline.com/media/video/2004cincy/2004cincyr1080304highlights.exe What kind of file is it? I'm used to mpgs, avi, and even wmv. I've never heard of exe, does anybody know what I can do ?

Éowyn
01-09-2005, 05:16 AM
they're rm files i think. but the exe is coz it automatically unzips itself coz some people are dumb and can't work out how to do it themselves so they all automatically unzip.

Fumus

Fumus

yep yep we know unfortunately theres nothing we can do about it just now it's not our error it appears our host server is overloaded (and has therefore killed our vids) :rolleyes: so we have to wait for them to fix it. we know about it though and we're waiting for a response from them to let us know whats happening.
