Upgrades and Updates 2018
The webpages have been upgraded to SSL. Any information input posted on a page to change output, is now encrypted. Even though we never ask for personal information on our site, we want to ensure that you are protected to the best of our ability.
The calendar information is being updated for 2018 and the daily activities pages are being re-scripted to speed up the information/page load. If you notice errors, your can access our email address on the contact page. Remember to include the phrase - moontracks - in the subject line of the email.
Moving within the Eclipses
If you are seeing this particular message, that means that you are visiting us on the new server. This transition should be more smooth than last year's crash and burn of a server collapse. If you encounter any problems on the pages, email us (via contact page) to tell us which URL is not working, what is not working, and if there is an error message, what the message is. This new server should provide more bandwidth at less expense.
Last week was the lunar eclipse and this week is the solar eclipse. A great indicator of change, and we are taking advantage while we can. Thanks for your support and patience!
New Year is Going Over the Limit
We hope that your New Year is everything that you had hoped for. For the most part, the site pages have transitioned well. Where we are experiencing the most problem is that the site is being attacked by Spam Bots that eat up our bandwidth. We can't afford to keep enlarging our bandwidth limits. We have blocked as many IPs from these bots, as possible, without slowing down the site.
Since most people block the ads on our site, we don't earn enough ad money to be able to afford more bandwidth. As long as these spam bots are eating up our bandwidth, at the end of the month there may be months where we run out of bandwidth and it will close down the site until the beginning of the next month.
Our apologies for the inconvenience!
Some Year End Transition Issues
We are working on getting the 2017 calendars updated. But we also have discovered that there have been some issues with bad code on the pages that pulls in the information. Thank you so much to those individuals who sent emails to let us know which pages were having issues. If you encounter any other issues, please don't hesitate to let us know by emailing us via the contact page along with the URL of the page that is having issues.
Part of the issues developed as a result of the server crash/rebuild in February. We were relying on some older pages that used older code/scripts. Hopefully, we have these fixed now.
Happy Holidays as we move into the new year.
Site Moved to Different Server Section
The past couple of months, the site has been slowed. We assumed it was due to the referrer spam our site was being innundated by. But it may also have been due to a faulty server node.
We appear to be back up. We hope this resolved the problem and that we stay online. Thank you for your patience.
Site is Slow due to Spam Attack
We apologize for the issues that our site is having. We discovered that the site is being attacked with spam referrals and spam bots. We have tried to implement some blocks and in many cases, we have needed to block entire countries from accessing our web pages. We hope that this slows down the attacks and allows our real users to have better access to the pages more quickly. We purchased more bandwidth twice in the past few months, only to have it bloated with spam, so we apologize for something that is currently beyond our control.
Bear with us as we attempt to bring some speed back to the site's webpages.
