Flamingcube Archive

edit: I think I figured out the dynamic redirection issue. The flamingcube.com domain was redirecting to www.boshdirect.com for SEO (search engine optimization reasons). Now it points directly to the home directory and should accept names as if it were boshdirect.com – you should see the changes as soon as the information propagates across the internet.

I checked some of the logs and noticed that I was getting a good number of hits from some old links on flamingcube.  Because of this, I've decided to upload the old content to the site.  I'm working on getting some URL redirects setup, but some of the links are having issues that I can't figure out. On that same note, I guess I should probably get a site search up and running again. 

When I originally moved boshdirect to the new host, I started using new software and archived the old boshdirect blog posts.  However, I never archived the blog posts and pictures from the flamingcube software. Luckily, I could still access an archive of the files and was able to upload some of the articles and images.

Here's a link to the photo gallery archive:

flamingcube – back online

Our sister site, flamingcube.com, has finally been restored. The data was lost during a transition from one host to another and the most recent backup was corrupt.

An old home-directory backup was found, allowing us to save most of the files. However, a recent database backup could not be recovered. The site had not seen many updates (to the DB) recently, so it wasn't that big of an issue. An older copy of the database was found and flamingcube was restored to it's normal self.

The forums have been locked down due to a recent outbreak in phpBB script attacks to the version currently being used on the site. flamingcube.com will now serve as a reference version of the old site.

Check out the site: http://www.flamingcube.com

—edit——————-
I really need to update the site to the new phpBB forums, as a new hack has been released for the version I have on the site. I think I may just take the site offline temporarily and forward the URL to this site.
