I'm not entirely sure why that downtime lasted as long as it did. I setup the TinyIB bunker, and it worked pretty well, surprisingly. Didn't get much traffic, but that's to be expected I suppose. We're 32chan after all. It all started when we encountered a DDoS attack and had to resort to using CloudFlare. The amount of time we were down post-DDoS was extended for longer than it probably should have. After we got CloudFlare set up, which was difficult in itself, we had to attempt getting LynxChan working under CloudFlare. For some reason, CloudFlare messed up cookies, making solving CAPTCHA and logging into the moderator interface impossible on our installation of LynxChan... And this brings us to the next part of our adventure.
After finally getting captcha.js to work by adding a page rule within CloudFlare (big thanks to our buddy Sheklewitz for that -- You're an MVP) we finally managed to get posting to work. This joy was shortlived, however, as we quickly discovered that logging in was still broken. Being frustrated with yet another problem, we just said screw it, and decided to try something new:
While we got further than Kip in installing the software (The engine was compiled, it ran) -- It still didn't quite work, because whenever someone posted, the engine would crash. This seems to be a problem with the thumbnailer. And this brings us to where we are now:
And anyone else I missed. Thanks a bunch!
