I will be making a number of changes to the MMN website over the coming weeks. This stems from the problems I had with the BBS machine when I was away in Paris in May.
I noticed that between the home broadband connection and the traffic GATEWAY was taking to handle non-BBS requests, it was best to move that machine away from the main domain and split it off.
This does not mean anything will change with the BBS, which is at the heart of what MMN has always been. The email domain will still be @mmn.on.ca and telnet/wcNav will still be on bbs.mmn.on.ca. The only change is the support portal/HTML interface website which is now on toronto.mmn.on.ca.
Why toronto.mmn.on.ca? Because I am moving “back to where it all started”. When MMN was first set-up I created it on the only domain I had access to at the time mmn.toronto.on.ca. A year or so later I was able to become a Sole Proprietorship at the Provincial level allowing me access to mmn.on.ca.
Since moving away from our VPN’d IP address Jabber has been moved to the sub-domain @im.mmn.on.ca so there is unlikely to have any concequence of service disruptions in this change.
What will be happening to mmn.on.ca? It will now be a cross between a portal site, my personal site and a project site. I have invested seventeen years in to MMN and mmn.on.ca since I started it back in 1996; and I have always meant to merge my personal projects in to the MMN name.
What about the Twitter account @mmn? I will be trying to move or at least mirror my personal account over to this; much to the displeasure of whomever is constantly requesting password changes. It’s still not for you!
I have questions! QUESTIONSQUESTIONSQUESTIONS! Don’t we all, but no matter you can email me here (select CS from the drop down) and I’ll come back to you; or leave a comment on my LJ post.
