4 / [2017] tastyspleen IP may be changing (new hosting)
« on: March 12, 2017, 02:10:31 PM »

We're evaluating moving tastyspleen to a different hosting company in Dallas. (The current company is overpriced. I could save approx $300/month at the new place.)

The new hardware will be better in every respect (faster CPU, more cores, more RAM, SSD instead of HDD, faster network port.)

The question is: How are pings?

This page will show pings from various locations around the world:

To see pings to our current host, just use "". To see pings to what the new datacenter would be, use "".

Note, however, this site doesn't always tell the whole story. My own ping to the new datacenter is quite bad. :( This appears to be the fault of my local provider (Time Warner) peering with and taking a really inefficient route. By contrast, a friend who lives a few miles away from me (Cox Cable instead of Time Warner) has a great ping to the new datacenter. So it can all depend on your local ISP.

So, if anyone who is interested could ping both "" and "" and paste your results in this thread, it would be helpful to see how the new location would perform for you. [To clarify, in this case I mean running pings on your local computer, e.g. from a cmd.exe window or shell, not using the website mentioned above.]

8 / Logged out from forum too quickly
« on: October 14, 2014, 09:21:52 AM »
Note that using the quick login fields at the top right of the forum seems to (sometimes?) default to settings where you become logged out very quickly.

An alternative is to use the [LOGIN] button in the forum nav bar:

(If you're currently logged in, you'd need to logout before that button becomes visible.)

That should bring up a more detailed login screen where one can check the "Always stay logged in" box.

There's also a "Minutes to stay logged in" option. This is editable in Chrome and Firefox, but is disabled on IE (due to IE's interpretation of the disabled="" flag as true instead of false.)

But checking "Always stay logged in" should supersede that minute-based value anyway, in theory.

Hope this helps!
