enetation July 24th 2003
After a number of crashes over the last week we have decided to perform a complete database sync over the 26th and 27th July weekend. The update will take a total of 4 to 6 hours and may result in about 30 mins downtime as we take a master copy of the database. We will try and complete the addition of at least one new server over the weekend to ease the peak time loads. As always enetation depends on the support of our users and donations are welcome at what is a rather costly upgrade time.

enetation July 21st 2003
One of the oldest slave servers used for enetation (host server 14) has given significant problems over the last 10 days. We have removed it from service until an engineer is available to rebuild it. The removal of the server has created a slightly higher load on the remaining servers but this should not cause a significant slowdown.
There have been a couple of failures of the comment counter in the last week caused by what appears to be a suspect chunk of code on the user forum which has caused the database sync to stop. We will upgrade the forum software this week.

Network and Hardware upgrades. We have just completed the addition of 5 new servers to Enetation taking the total to 9 servers. The new machines will be configured for use over the next week and brought into service during July.

New contracts were signed in June to provide additional bandwidth and routing to Enetation so we now have 120mbits of connectivity through several major European Network Access Points including Linx, Manap, Lipex, Lonap in addition to our international connectivity. In conjunction with this we have also obtained a larger network block of 1024 IP addresses to provide significant future expansion capacity.

Downtime
One of the slave database servers has been suffering from intermittent connection failures over the last week. Identification of the cause of the problem is still ongoing but as we can now test for the problem we should be in a position to manage failures more effectively in the short term until a permanent resolution can be put in place. Typically when the problem occurs it causes the comment link to disappear on 1 out of 3 connections. As soon as we have a permanent fix in place we'll issue a notice here.

Enetation now has over 54,000 users but fewer users than ever are donating. Please donate and support Enetation!

Enetation has recently passed the 40,000 user milestone and is now well on the way to 50,000 users. This week saw our largest ever growth rate with over 1000 new users joining enetation.

Code Upgrades. New experimental code has been added today to include support for Bold <b> </b> and Italic <i> </i> tags as well as hyperlinks. We have also resolved some minor issues with code bugs.

enetation February 17th 2003
Our second major code upgrade was completed today, the new code will be used automatically for all new user accounts. Over the next week or two we will upgrade all of the old user accounts to the new code base. Users will not have to make any changes to their code and there should be no downtime as each account is upgraded

The Pro system has not yet been upgraded to the new code although we expect that this will happen over the next few days. Pro upgrades may not be completed for 48 hours while the migration to the new code takes place.

The servers are still suffering at peak times of the day but we expect that this will ease as user accounts are upgraded to v2 of the code.

enetation January 9th 2003
We are experiencing very high server loads at peak times during the day which may prevent some comment links from appearing. Thanks to very generous donations over December we are in a position to add two servers this weekend to the existing cluster which should minimise any risk of system overload. (We were expecting the new servers added in November to be good for 6 months, but due to the fantastic growth in users it looks like we've managed 6 weeks!) Please keep donating!

Donations via Credit and Debit card are now possible from here.

We have found that a the comment count settings for blogs with more than one comment may be corrupt in several users settings. We are working on a global fix but individual users can fix this themselves by updating their comment settings themselves.
UPDATE All comment count settings have been reset however the captions that go with the comment could not be recovered. It looks like a single user has been able to apply their incorrect comment count caption to every users account.

Our first series of server and system upgrades have gone very well. A quick indication of how effective they are can be found here.

On Friday 15th November Enetation was transferred into the control of Netserve Consultants Ltd. A full press release is available here

Enetation server swop, so DNS changeover caused 20mins downtime today. Freebie users back up. Could I ask all users to read the stick topic in the form..

enetation October 29th 2002
Another outage of the service occurred last night as the number of users simply overwhelmed the servers. The traffic that is hitting the enetation service is immense. The number of users in the last month has risen amazingly, however the number of donors remain low. Please read this forum posting.

enetation October 25th 2002
Server outage took enetation offline for a few hours last night. This has now been sorted out.

enetation October 16th 2002
General housekeeping scripting updated. Working through the todo list!

Big news on enetation. We are now running a donation drive . With this comes XML outputs, email notification of comments and other goodies. Click here for more information on this.

Ok all is now running off the new server :)

enetation September 9th 2002
Tonight the full system will go live on the new server (assuming things go to plan) Keep an eye out on this site over the next few days for an important announcement.

enetation September 3rd 2002
The new server is in and configured so I am just ensuring that the DB is working ok etc. Things should be plain sailing now, however forgive me if its off/busy in the next day or two - its me ok! I am just fiddling :)

enetation August 27th 2002
Enetation is back up on a lighter code base, so it will now instantly load your comments or instantly say 'server busy'. There is no more long load times either way :) The new server is going into the rack shortly, it will be a Athlon 1800, 40gb 7.2K rpm hard drive and will be trying and get 1Gb ram for it (depending on prices)- that should ensure the Database stays quick. Again can I thank everyone for their support and positive messages!

enetation August 26th 2002
As you are aware enetation has had some service issues in the last few days. I have taken the decision to re-code from scratch and purchase better database oriantated servers (ie. loads of ram!) As a result enetation will resume normal service at some point next week. It will be back with the speed and reliability that made you choose this system to provide your commenting.
UPDATE:
Thanks for all the emails, the most comment question is 'Will I loose all my comments?' the answer is NO all are saved. Once its all back up and running it will be picking off exactly where we left off :)

enetation August 20th 2002
Update: New code went live at 12:25GMT
A log of this mornings work can be found in the forum here (please take a look). The user.php has now got a whole new structure to it, resulting in even greater speed in your weblog commenting. As a result blogs with enetation commenting will load nice and fast!

enetation August 18th 2002
Two of the enetation servers were bombarded for several hours by multiple IP's severally restricting server output, such a denial of service is hoped to be prevented in future with a new packet filtering system and automatic rerouting of 'geniune' requests. Some users may have experianced slowness in using enetation during this period (3am-1pm GMT). All is now back to normal, and we will be back to development (see below) which was interupted! :)

enetation August 17th 2002
We are working on an all new coding for user.php, so that no database calls need to be made thus resulting in a near transparent load time while using enetation. Translation: enetation will be faster than ever. We also have some big developments that we are waiting to deploy, so stay tuned!

enetation August 2nd 2002
Enetation is now fully stable and bug proof for the forseeable future, negating the need for day by day updates (as below). Due to this I ask any comments, questions etc should be pointed at the forum. See you there!

enetation July 25th 2002
Database calls within scripts have been optimised, and once user.php (the bit for the header code) gets sorted it should all go faster than a very fast thing. Thanks for all the messages, its nice to see an instant improvement when coding!

The Forums are now open for all support requests / questions / dev work etc. Please use these to contact us rather than email - and if you have done something groovy show off your site and help others out here!
