And we are, finally, online…

Still checking things, and may well go out for a few hours to get a break from the screen…but it looks pretty good right now :o)

Yet another update…

•December 6, 2008 • 1 Comment

So if you go to the site now, you will see the “Go Daddy” host page. Go Daddy provide the hosting for the site, so don’t worry, this is as it should be while the site is down.
There was nothing major wrong with the site, but we needed to change a whole bunch of files, and there are a number of little things that needed to be added and adjusted. So we have taken it down while we work on that. We wanted to get the site up asap and ended up rushing it a little bit – but I don’t want it up with a load of things still to be done (other than uploading) because it was stressing us both out to feel the site was structurally incomplete.
So we are tying up as many loose ends and things we are unhappy with. We still hope to get it up over the weekend or early next week.
Whoever left the comment about “at least 1 more week of delay” was spot on, lol…

Sorry but…

…we have run into more problems. So we are going to work through the weekend and try to sort them out. We thought it was all ready to go, but it wasn’t :o(

Will let you know more as soon as I have something interesting to tell you..

Final post on this blog. I hope.

Everything is looking good. I am changing over links as I said in the previous post. I was going to put the site up, then change the links. But in retrospect, that would be a bit daft – the site would be up but not working right. So instead, I am sorting out the links, then putting up the site. It will be up later today, probably around 6pm New Jersey time!

:o)

Site Update

•December 5, 2008 • 4 Comments

After a bit of messing around, we got the site up and running.

We have now taken it down again because the site has loaded up but the links to artwork and downloads have changed. I have to go through the entire site correcting them. Its not a major problem, but it is a tedious job, so I am going to start it fresh in the morning, and sort it out all day tomorrow, so that by the end of the day it will be a functioning website!

Yay!

The next post will be made on the front page of the new site tomorrow, around 10am – ish New York US time (thats 5 hours behind UK time, so 3pm) and I will keep you updated as the day goes by…

Site not up yet :o)

•December 4, 2008 • 9 Comments

Despite one sneak preview by Nav (you must have been bored and spying mate!) we have run into a few issues getting the site online. We will try again tomorrow, but we only have the evenings at the moment! So bear with us, we are doing our best :o) this is all new to us, so we are learning as we go along.

We are very close though. As soon as we work out what’s stopping everything from working, we will fix it, ha ha!

Seriously, though, we just have a few bugs to sort out and we are too tired to do any more tonight!

Update…

•December 3, 2008 • 5 Comments

The site will have finally uploaded in the next few hours. We still have to add a little bit of code, and double check things are working. If all is well, then it will go up later today / tomorrow. If not, then not – you know how it is, we are new to this so the chance of getting it wrong is high lol…
As for the torrent thing, there’s no need to worry about it just yet – its an emergency option if we have a problem with too many downloads. But we shouldn’t need it :o) Nice one…

Just quickly…

We are looking into limiting the downloads tonight. And I dont know how to do a torrent thingamajig. If someone can post a link to how to go about it, I will get one up and running. The only thing I dont like about that idea is that I would prefer people to download from the site, as I want to see what people like best, you know? There will be a most popular download thingy on the site.

Gotta run….at 3pm New York time, we are about 60% uploaded…so I expect the site wont go live until Wednesday morning. Maybe Tuesday night….but probably Wednesday! Back to Artists profiles…

Site is uploading….

•December 1, 2008 • 6 Comments

…its going to take a while. It started at the top – Def Wish 01, 180meg, 10 minutes to upload. Have a guess how long it will take for another, oh, 80 or 90 files that size? 15 hours at least. And some of the files are nearer 600meg.

Obviously, the site is not available to look at while this is happening. I would also ask two small favors please.

1. This is the first time Bexxie has worked on a site of this size, and also the first time we have uploaded a site that people were actually waiting for. So PLEASE, if it comes online and looks all fucked up, its because we have made a mistake somewhere. We will notice that its fucked up, and be working on it. So don’t panic, just wait.

2. There is going to be a lot of stuff to download. Please don’t go on and take everything you can immediately. I would like to get the site up and running BEFORE the hosts get annoyed and shut it down for too many downloads lol. Once the initial uploading has finished, I will be adding more and more to the site. So, relying on the site functioning properly once it is live, files will be going up one at a time, all day, every day, for the next week or so.
There’s no rush. I understand the temptation to grab a whole collection, but I have no intention of taking the files down, so there’s no need to get everything today, if you see what I mean. Chances are, it wont matter anyway as we have “unlimited” bandwidth / download capabilities. We all know how “unlimited” hosts can change to “you are doing too much downloading – we only meant unlimited in a limited sort of way” ha ha!

As Bexxie and I are new to this, we would appreciate as little trouble as possible while either uploading or with the hosts.
Oh, one other thing. Once you start downloading stuff, and if a file is misnamed, has the wrong track / artwork or something of that nature, please email me at:-

luna-c@kniteforce.co.uk

I probably wont have time to email you bak, but I will add it to the list of things to sort out and get it done asap!

Nice one…see you on the other side….

Another Quick Update….

•November 25, 2008 • 9 Comments

Okay, the old kniteforcerevolution site will be down in the next few days – probably over thanksgiving (thursday coming) at which point we will be putting the new site up.
As it stands, we have most of what we wanted, but the sections are a little empty. The site should load up with the entire KF catalogue ready to be downloaded, as well as a few of the other labels. Podcasts are in place. There will be a new blog post on the front page of the new site (the blog is integrated) to let you know whats going on. There will also be a post on this blog to let you know the site is up lol….The artists profiles are being overhauled and extended (I have been working on that all day). A forum may go up in the future, but not now. The History has been rewritten, lol…its much better now.
So, the site should be up by, or on, next weekend. Perhaps earlier if we can iron out the remaining quirks and wierds that websites love to do for no apparent reason.
The bottom line is, I am going to have to upload a lot of the content once the site is up because of the sheer volume of stuff to go up! I will make the site available as soon as humanly possible.
Also, I will be adding to this post, maybe tomorrow. I have received all the mixes for KFA46 now, and will put up a clip of the 4 absolutely amazing remixes. Best. KFA. Ever!
I have lots to say about that, so will do so tomorrow.
This wordpress blog will remain up even as the KFrevolution site goes down, and the new one comes up, as its a seprate entity. So if it all goes to hell, I will be moaning about it here. Gotta run, so much still to do :o(
