The NHL Is Dark Tonight

And so am I.  My mind needs to get away from hockey for a night, my body needs a comfy recliner.

See you in the morning unless we have breaking news tonight.

KK- Things

If you are having a problem logging in, it's not you, it is us.

I will update this post when a solution comes about.

Also, KK 2.0 is in early beta, the developers are doing their checking of the site, then it will be turned over to me for a final check.

update 11:08am, You should be able to log in on KK.  The problem was related to the hacker we had about 6 weeks ago.

KK- KK 2.0 is Getting Close

From our developer...

Getting close, finally!  After a lot of work I've managed to get the KKH (Hockey section)  posts (the many, many thousands of posts you've made, 86,000) to import, although not entirely correctly yet.  Getting through that import is the challenge, and the current run takes ~8 hours to get through the import.

Yes it has been longer than expected but I would rather have everything right before KK 2.0 is launched.  There is nothing worse than having issues at launch so it is best to hit the ground running.

KK- A Progress Report on Kukla’s Korner 2.0

Our developer supplied an update on the progress KK 2.0 is making.

All content imported except the posts from the KKH (the hockey section) channel - you have posted so many over the years that we're trying to work around memory issues to get the content out of the old site.  As a bonus, any time you've used an email address in a post, the old site used javascript to prevent spam.  The javascript used there can't import into the new site, so we have to scrub it from all the old posts.  Still working through that challenge and hopeful we'll have it solved soon.

I'd rather all the bugs and issues are fixed before we go live.  Parts of KK were held together with spit and glue so I did expect a small delay but we are close.

KK- Update On Kukla’s Korner 2.0

Our developer said this last night regarding KK 2.0- Hoping to have it ready for your review by the weekend.

He's had a few minor issues with the conversion and content so it's gettig close to real.

I did the first status update on February 16th stating testing would hopefully be ready "early next week".

KK member Hippy Dave who I believe is in the IT field left this comment then, "That’s developer speak for three weeks".  He was right.

KK- Hopefully The Last Post On The Donation Drive To Keep KK Alive

We are short $1685 of reaching the goal of $12K after KK was hacked early last week.  

It has been a whirlwind week and what has keep me from being one very nervous person is the generosity many of you have shown by donating to the cause.

I am confident the goal will be reached, it may take some time but we have some time (4 weeks or so) before the new build is ready to go live.

You can find the previous post here which includes a running total of donations from day 1.  I will add any further donations below.

Donation information- Money will remain in (direct links to PayPal or GoFundMe or Zelle, the email address to use is pk at kuklaskorner dot com) until the goal of $12K is met. If it falls short, money will be refunded to you.

Thanks to all who have supported this effort.

update 9:57am on 1/13/22, $885 short of the goal!

KK- An Update On The Donation Drive To Keep KK Alive

update at 10:47am on 1/10/22, we just crossed the $10K mark in donations

The donation drive to keep KK alive is at $9765 with the goal being $12K, so we are getting close.

Not only will this keep KK/A2Y working properly, there are numerous upgrades being made behind the scenes.

Altough KK will look about the same, you will notice how much more snappy it will be, plus a different look and options to the commenting section.

Donation information- Money will remain in (direct links to PayPal or GoFundMe or Zelle, the email address to use is pk at kuklaskorner dot com) until the goal of $12K is met. If it falls short, money will be refunded to you.

Below find a running total of donations.

I am still in awe of the generosity many have shown by donating, it means so much to me.  I am still waling around with my head in the clouds.

KK- The Donation Drive To $12K Continues

Wednesday morning around this time we were sitting at $1179 in donations.  24 hours later on Thursday, the donation total was $5980, today the grand total in donations is $8850.

From being told KK was breached early this week to getting close to achieving the goal of $12K to rebuild Kukla's Korner has certainly played with my emotions.

Work is being done on KK to at least get us up again which would allow KK members to comment again.  But when diving into all the hacking of the site, you never know what is going to be found so t is a slow process.  If fixed, it would allow KK to at least be in the game until the new build is ready in about a month.

Donation information- Money will remain in (direct links to PayPal or GoFundMe or Zelle, the email address to use is pk at kuklaskorner dot com) until the goal of $12K is met. If it falls short, money will be refunded to you.

Since comments are not working at this point, if you want to chat, feel free to email me.

Below find a running total of donations.

I will put up a new post if there is an update on being to comment again on KK.
