Hosting Update #2 - Almost There

Friday December 28th, 2001

We've all but decided on a host, and hope to start moving the site starting this week. We apologize for the lack of updating as we have been busy working on finding a host, along with enjoying the holidays. We hope to have the site fully up and running by the middle of January, and will get links up to the beta one as soon as we have something.

We also want to again thank you for your amazing support. When we first decided we were going to move, we had no clue of how we were going to find the money, nor any idea how supportive the community would be. We've raised enough money to make the move to a larger host that will allow us to both reopen the site in full now, and expand what we have to offer in the coming year. We're going to leave the link to PayPal up, and we'll use any additional money raised to help fund next year's bills and to cover bandwidth overruns if they arise. We thank you for all your support over the past 3+ years, especially the last couple of weeks, and look forward to many more years as part of the Mozilla community. Thanks again, and happy holidays.

Glad to see that MoZine will continue to improve. Since day one, it's been a great site. Why, some of us remember when it started way back when! :)

I know this is unrelated, but this is the latest thread so I thought I would ask my question here.

While using the last couple of nightly builds for win32 I have noticed that the following URLs do not work:

<http://dmoz.org/Arts/Music/Styles/Hip_Hop/> <http://dmoz.org/Society/R…ity/Music/Styles/Hip_Hop/>

I am getting a file not found message, but I know these URLs both work. NS4, NS6, Opera and IE can all access them correctly. Has anybody else out there experienced a similar problem? At firs,t I thought it might be a problem with the underscore in the URL, but the following URL works ok:

<http://dmoz.org/Society/Religion_and_Spirituality/>

So, the problem is not with the underscore. I\'m even sure where to begin searching for a bug on this one. Does Mozilla have a music pref? Has anybody else experienced any problems with getting a page not found error only in Mozilla?

try clearing your cache and set it to update every time you visit the page, maybe theres some problem. If it doesn't help try using a fresh new profile or reinstalling (don't forget to uninstall) Mozilla.

First of all, yes your questions is way of topic. You should post questions or comments like that in the newsgroups. Create a newsgroup account using news.mozilla.org as the news server. There are many newsgroups you can subscribe to at netscape.public.mozilla. General questions like that can be posted at netscape.public.mozilla.general newsgroup.

The problem you describe does not show up on my Mozilla version (latest nightly 12-30, Win XP and Linux). Try the following: Go to Edit > Preferences and do all of the following: clear History and Location Bar. Clear the Memory Cache and the Disk Cache. Exit Mozilla and restart it.

Sorry, we've gotten so many offers, we've been trying to go through them as fast as possible. Thanks for the offer, but i think we've found exactly what we're looking for.

#7 A non-Paypal option?

Will a non-PayPal option be made? So people that have problems with PayPal can still send money? A simple address to mail a check to would be great.

Not for now. If we need to raise funds again, we'll be sure to do so. Having it in a paypal account for now lets us manage the overflow if we have any and keeps us honest in the process.

...at least until PayPal locks your account for no reason and steals all your overflow funds. They've done that to lots of people, which is why I refuse to use them. See discussions on such boards as AuctionWatch and reviews on Epinions.

#12 changing email addresses in bugzilla account

Anyone know how to change email addresses in bugzilla? There is an option to change passwords but none that I see to change email addresses.

That's a bug (search for it in bugzilla itself). Basically, you have to email the admin until they get that particular bug resolved. They're quite good about it, though, as long as you're nice, at least.

Correction: until the bug is resolved, each time you have to change your email, you will have to email an admin. Search for (and read!) the bug for the real deal.

Seems reasonable to at least let us know who you went with for hosting.. I'm looking for a hosting location myself, and I'd certainly consider one which I know does nice things for web sites I care about :)

I would rather have monkey excrement in my computer than Windows XP. Die Microsoft, with your two gigabytes of worthless trash. Just die.

seems to be the first non-Mozilla-related flame I can remember in these forums.

Don't say too much against XP. Seems to be the best Windows ever. Although I would never give my Linux for it ;)

There were others. I chose to type about Windows XP since there apparently is not going to be any conversation about Mozilla here for a long time. We have to continue to post messages or this site will die from inactivity similar to the way Netscape did.

just ressurection of the general forums would help I think. And maybe just that the holydays are now over. There weren't many news the last weeks.
