|FurrTrax Upgrades Again!|
Posted by: DarkXander at 02-11-2016 13:20 PM
|In the interest of our main server retaining its name as a true Spartan, i caught another deal on RAM for it, 6 x 8GB Sticks of DDR3 Fully Buffered and Registered ECC RAM for 100 bucks, which is 50 cheaper than even amazons used stock can get it for on identical part numbers. This will fill up our slots, and give us a grand total of 144 GB of RAM. All these peeps with Low Orbit Ion Canons can tremble now because we have the Furry Death Star.

|Spotlight: Facebook Blocks Xanders Account, Deletes FurrTraxs' Official Facebook Page|
Posted by: DarkXander at 01-15-2016 11:48 AM
|Facebook admin, in their infinite stupidity regarding their ID verification rules, have blocked the account of FurrTrax's owner, Xander Venterus.
It seems lately they have been blocking a lot of Indian members, as well as other minorities as well, and leaves one to wonder if anyone is actually using any common sense at Facebook HQ.
In the Interim Sonny, A friend of Xanders will be overseeing the FurrTrax Group on Facebook since Xander is now completely locked out. If any news needs posted to the group it will be related to Sonny for posting, untill Facebooks admin teams remove their heads from their asses.
IF you feel this post is strongly worded it was intentional, with the hope that someone at Facebook sees it. And FIXES this problem so we can then remove this news post!
This rule effectively means, Any whistleblowers, or people living in places with oppressive governments cannot speak out on facebook, because facebook will force them to reveal their true identities, thus condemning them, and potentially their families to the danger of retribution. Facebook, Your new rule is un-ethical, and un-american!
|FurrTrax Art Project - Free Money!|
Posted by: DarkXander at 01-13-2016 14:43 PM
|FurrTrax needs some default avatars for people who havent settled or created a Fursona for themselves.
FurrTrax will pay $20 for each Avatar Set provided and approved by an artist.
An Avatar set is simply an avatar such as a Fox, but with included copies in multiple colors, so the user can choose a color or style of their liking.
An Avatar set must include at least 6 versions with different colors or patterns to be elligible.
If your submission is approved and you are paid, you release all rights to the piece to FurrTrax, However we will credit you as the artist!
You may also place a small signature (Ex: by John Doe) in the bottom left corner of the images.
Bottom Right corner must be left for us to add our small logo watermark.
No scanned images from paper.
Artwork must be Digital!
Transparent Background is greatly preferred!
We need the Following Sets:
Canine, Wolf, Dragon, Reptilian, Equine, Bovine, Feline, perhaps others if you have an idea for something, ask first and ill let you know if im interested in having it.
Maybe even some other fantasy creatures!
For those who may wish to submit individual images that are not of a set, i am willing to review and see if any of them seem fitting to use for this. If so ill make an offer when i see it. For that instance you will not need to release all rights to us, only usage rights if its not an entire set.
|PSA: FurAffinitys First Outage of the Year, on the First day of the Year|
Posted by: DarkXander at 01-01-2016 16:24 PM
|So it seems FurAffinity has wasted no time in getting their first outage of 2016 underway, as they report they have had some kind of motherboard failure in one of their servers. Its only the first day of 2016 and they have already set the tone for the new year and it isnt anything to look forward to so far.

|Spotlight: Profile Pics Feature Removal!|
Posted by: DarkXander at 12-23-2015 09:10 AM
|The feature that allows to you place 3 extra profile pictures at the bottom of your profile page is going to be removed. So if you want to save those pictures, download them or save them down to your PC soon!
This will not affect the Uploaded Files section at the very bottom of the profile, this is just for the triplet section of thumbnail images above the attached files.
A new feature which is equivalent and better will be replacing that element so never fear, just get your images out before i roast them!

|His real ip, which traces back to a lowly DSL account on comcast is 18.104.22.168, and there is an open Administrative port on his modem Port 7547, which can be exploited. It is documented here: Link from DSL Reports. Im sure this information will be valuable to someone
|Huntsville AL Holiday FurMeet|
Posted by: Lupine Furmen at 12-12-2015 15:16 PM
|Saturday Dec 19th we will be having our Holiday party/pot luck dinner from 5-9pm in the fellowship hall at Spirit of the Cross church, located at 3015 Sparkman Dr (next to the police academy).
Since we will be using the church's facilities, there can be no alcohol involved. FURSUITS ARE WELCOME for this event.
For the potluck portion please refere to the chart below as to what to bring.
We will be playing "Dirty Santa", so everyone should bring some kind of plain wrapped gift for the fun. The gifts should be no more than $10, and should be unisex.
This chart is based on the first letter of your real last name:
A F K P U - Entree'
B G L Q V - desert
C H M R W - side dish
D I N S X - drinks
E J O T Y Z - misc (flatwere, plates, cups, ice)
REMEMBER: While it is nice and prefered that you make something yourself, It is totaly acceptable to pick up something on your way like hitting the deli/bakery at Wal-Mart, Publix, or Target. Or hitting KFC or Popeye's.
|Spotlight: Were on the new Server!|
Posted by: DarkXander at 12-11-2015 21:38 PM
|We are on the new server, things may stutter a bit here and there, i will have to dial in all the settings and configs over time. But were all done with the install!
|Spotlight: We will be going Offline around 6:30 PM Arizona Time|
Posted by: DarkXander at 12-11-2015 16:40 PM
|We will be going Offline around 6:30 PM Arizona Time for our server upgrades and swapout.
We will be down for at least an hour or so, most likely between 2-3 hours as we move the drives and data over to the new PowerEDGE, we will be putting all the old servers drives into the new server to boost its storage capacity as well.
In the end we will have:
6 SSDs on the PERC H700 Controller
2 x 146GB SAS 15,000 RPM drives on the PERC H700 Controller
1 PCI-Express Mounted SSD
96GB of RAM
and 8 Intel I7 Series Xeon CPU cores.
|Spotlight: New Server Provisioning and Setup|
Posted by: DarkXander at 12-09-2015 22:47 PM
|I am tentatively planning to install our new Dell PowerEDGE R710 on Friday the 11th, or Saturday the 12th unless something comes up to delay it. So plan for site downtime around that timeframe.
Due to the type of swapout i am doing i cannot use the backup server to keep the site online or things would get out of sync and be more complicated than they need to be. Also expect the site to be slower for a while leading up to the down time because i will be doing a full backup of the system prior to decommissioning the old system.
|We have our new Server|
Posted by: DarkXander at 12-06-2015 13:31 PM
|The aformentioned server in the news post below now belongs to FurrTrax, its in my trunk, and soon will power our future.
