Kukla's Korner Hockey
I spent some time dealing with a medical issue late last night and this morning.
I am OK and will be posting in about ten minutes.
Sorry for the delay.
Well we are running pretty smoothly with the new host and server.
If you are seeing this message, that means you are on the new hardware and should see KK loading quicker.
Do remember it may take some time for rss and twitter feeds to catch up with the new DNS. But all should be well in about 8 hours.
One note to KK bloggers, you can now post.
added 3:19am, Right now any post from any blogger besides KK Hockey is not showing up on the homepage of KK. It will be worked on first thing in the morning.
Sometime in the 11:00pm ET hour, KK will be migrating to a new, shiny server and host. Although this may not be big news to you, it is to me since KK will have a bit more flexibility when it comes in dealing with those days KK becomes very busy. Like trade deadline day, UFA day, or an Abel to Yzerman rant or live blog.
You will know you are on the new server/host when this message is no longer at the top of KK. It may take some time, 2-4 hours for you to see the new server after you have visited KK once the migration is complete.
Also, I suggest not posting a comment until you are hooked up with the new server and host, if you do post a comment, it will be not be seen when the new hardware is up and running.
I thank you in advance for your understanding and continued dedication to Kukla's Korner.
I need a little bit of sleep, been up since 6:00am yesterday.
I know I will sleep a little more peaceful now. The lockout has weighed on me, not only because hockey is what I do, but because I love this game so much.
I will not forget the lockout but will not dwell on it, for I do not want to be known as a sour man. I will move forward and enjoy the game on the ice once more.
On another note, KK had a failed move to a different host during the night so rss feeds, twitter feeds and such are messed up right now but will be corrected in a few hours.
Be back soon along with the players.
We will be moving to a new hosting service this evening so you may see a little KK down time, probably no longer than a couple of minutes between 10pm ET-midnight.
Also, comments you make from roughly 9pm ET-midnight may be lost and I apologize inadvance for that small issue.
I will update this post when all is good again.
added 12:59am 1/6/13,
The transfer is taking longer than expected but the good news is, the NHL and PA are still meeting at this late hour.
Really no news at all, slowly moving along with some bumps still in the road.
The switch is complete but it may take some time, maybe up to 2-4 hours for the DNS to switcn.
So probably not best to comment unless you want to take a chance of it disappearing.
Well, we found some errors when the new host went online, so back to the old host until we try again. You may see posts and comments disappear for the next few hours but hopefully everything back to 100% in a few hours.
According to the reports I have read today, the NHL and the NHLPA have no plans to meet before Christmas and I would not be surprised if they do not meet until the new year.
I am pretty beat up right now, I will admit covering this lockout is much harder than covering the NHL on a daily basis when games are being played.
Everyone has the some story so I pick and choose very carefully what is posted on KK. That means delaying at times, passing on the first to report story and gathering one with all the details, so I do not have to add to a story later.
I will be in relaxed mode through Christmas, meaning I will post a story when I am available. But do understand I will be monitoring things and if any big news breaks, I will post it ASAP.
I am sure some of you are traveling this weekend so stay safe and everyone enjoy this glorious Holiday Season.
Hanukkah- A tradition of freedom, courage, and peace.
A time of renewed faith and hope. Have a Joyous Celebration.
Time for me to put my feet up, enjoy a little of the holiday spirit and clear my mind.
If anything newsworthy needs to be posted, I will, if not, see you Saturday morning.
Normally on Cyber Monday I would list the numerous affiliates I have which are associated with the NHL, such as apparel, sweaters, hats, decorations, etc.
But during the lockout, I personally don't feel it is right to advertise any of those products until we have our game back.
Yes I am taking a hit, so call this my own personal stand against anything NHL related until the NHL and NHLPA can sign a new CBA.
In the meantime, I just ask if you do shop at Amazon.com, that you use this link to make your purchases. I also want to thank those who continue to shop at Amazon.com using my affiliate link, it has really helped out.
If you are a Detroit Red Wings fan, keep reading, if not, enjoy your shopping day.
Yes it is slow and for once I an thankful for that.
I have been fighting for the last 18 hours symptoms that appear to be flu-like but I don't think it is the flu.
I have improved enough to type this and not feel drained of all my strength, so progress is being made.
All liquids today, Gatorade and Vernors, and maybe some dry toast tonight.
Hopefully I will be back on Sunday morning.
