Site Updates

Just wanted to post a quick blurb to point out that I've updated various pages around the site including the email and chat setup pages.

Please let me know if I've missed stuff or if there are any heinous errors.

Moving to Google Apps

I'm in the process of moving email and chat for thenibble.org over to Google Apps. Google will provide the full reliability of their service along with ease of use and maintenance for a personalized domain for free (up to 50 users).

So all mail will be available via mail.thenibble.org and from here you can setup stuff like mail forwarding or IMAP access etc. Currently, your old mail won't be in the new system, but I intend to do a mass migration of existing mail once the new setup has stabalized a little (within the next week or so).

The other part is chat. Users shouldn't need to change much as I've got "jabber.thenibble.org" pointing to the new server, but these are Google's instructions:

http://www.google.com/support/a/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=49147

But as I mentioned, "jabber.thenibble.org" points to the right place so where you provide the Jabber server on the advanced tab, you can use either talk.google or jabber.thenibble.

We're still shaking everything out like group chat and that kind of stuff, so I guess it will be a bit of a work-in-progress.

End of nibble.bz

After several years of getting gouged for the nibble.bz domain name registration, it's finally lapsing and will lapse on October 17th. Many existing services have been switched over to thenibble.org and some stuff like the mail server config and SSL certs need to be changed.

Hmph, I guess there's just not that much to say about this. Just let me know if there's anything on nibble.bz I need to change to thenibble.org.

The Mailing List is Back

Now, send us your credit-card info, and we'll see about getting you off the mailing list.

I've installed Mailman on Alia as the list manager and swapped out the static alias for the nibble, so now nibble@thenibble.org (or whatever domain you'd prefer) goes into mailman so it's got web-based email archives and all that good stuff. It's here for more info:

Nibble Website Moved

The Nibble website has moved from our old domain (nibble.bz) to the new one, thenibble.org. Wordpress should happily redirect any links to the old pages over to the new URL. So until nibble.bz actually goes away, we should be all good.

Websites and Database Moved

I have moved all of the web and database stuff off of Jessica (the VM) and onto Alia. There's slightly different OS and application versions specifically with regards to Wordpress. I tried to get the themes and plugins moved over and hopefully that about covers it but there may be some quirkyness with the new setup so please let me know if you run across any oddities.

Also, I'm going to shutdown my "archangel.nibble.bz" wordpress, it was really just setup as a test thing. So any posts that aren't going in my regular blog (http://dl.nibble.bz/~archangel) I'm just going to post directly here.

And in case you're wondering, the server is Ubuntu 8.04.
