New Server!


2021-12-31 18:11:27
Another update on Jan 4 - Xu-Fu is back! Server upgrade successful :D Sorry for the unexpected downtime but lets hope the "page not reachable" is a thing of the past!

Update Jan 4 - The transition is happening today (some time around noon EST), and it's gonna be a downtime again but should be a short one this time.

Update Jan 3 - I've ordered a substantial upgrade for the server that will be applied within the next 3 days. Apologies for the timeouts until then.

It's done!

Xu-Fu found a new home. Now let's see if this is better! I've tested everything I could think of but if you run into any errors, please do leave a comment or message me directly.

One thing I've already noticed when load-testing is that the page reaches a "Resource Limit" at some point. I will have to wait and see how this works out but the good thing is, this new server structure is very easy to upgrade. I just didn't know what to go with so the current setup is probably not fast enough but I'll increase that when necessary.

Oh and one more thing, collection data is still copying over but I didn't want to keep the page offline any longer. You can easily reimport it - or give it a day until I've moved everything over.

The default for displayed language is russian. Can't be toggled by chrome on the front page, is this meant to all be in russian?

Pages load very nice and fast. Good job.
I get a note on many strats that my pet does not meet the requirements. It is a rather anoying message, that covers the arrows to switch pets in the strat. The message used to only come on mouseover on the yellow bar for the pet (which nicely indicates, that requirements are not met)

Hey :)
Glad the server works fine again!

I've added the popup of the disclaimer so it's a bit more visible. What do you think would be a good solution?
Perhaps showing up for a shorter time before it disappears?
Or not at all?
Or only the first X times a user encounters it and then it doesn't anymore?
Or.. .an account setting to have this On or Off?

Just throwing ideas out :D

Maybe the long time the first 2-5 times for new users and after that only on mouseover. The account setting is also a good choice, so it doesn't accidentaly load on mouseover, if the user don't want to see it.
I think the color coding on each pet is easily understandable on its own. (edited)

Alright, I've removed it again for now. Having a setting for this tiny thing seems a bit overkill to me. The default would be off (as it's the preference here) and I doubt anyone would go into the settings looking for an option to switch this particular tiny thing *on*. Doesn't make sense, so I'll just leave it the way it is now.

Magpie is no longer updating for me . I get a red triangle on the page , when I follow it I see "last update 5 days ago" at the bottom of the page I see "Auction data is very old. Probably the Blizzard API is not working. You can check out the API status on TradeSkillMaster site." when I check there it shows up to date. any suggestions ??

There is an issue with magpie but work is being done on it at the moment. Hopefully fixed soon :)

This should be resolved now!

Thank you for the server upgrade! For me, everything is working very nicely now.
Happy new year, all.

Solved! My bad, sorry

Happy New Year, Aranesh! I appreciate YOU! This site has been saving my sanity for years now--and I only use it on the most basic level. I still use so many of your original (name stamped) strategies and I say a little thank you each time. Thank you for everything you do for US (essentially free-loading strangers)- all the time and energy (and love!) you put into saving all of us so much time and energy. Cheers!

Hey! Happy New Year!

I really struggle with words right now. Thank you so much for your words of appreciation. They mean very much to me. I am very proud of Xu-Fu and how much I've learnt and built thanks to those learnings - hearing from people like yourself how much of a difference it makes in your own hobby, pet battling, and by that confirming that what I created works, is so, so wonderful. Thank you!

received this error when going to the daily active legion quest tab: Loop Detected

The server terminated an operation because it encountered an infinite loop.
Additionally, a 508 Loop Detected error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


wrote on 2022-01-03 10:29:32

That's new. Error 508 would be the timeouts that I'm working on to resolve.
Infinite Loop sounds different. Can you reproduce that? If so, which page exactly is that happening on?

I was using edge and went to the legion quests box to see who was up for leveling a toon and thats what came up, cant duplicate it today as there are no leveling toons up. the page with that error would bring up the toon and I believe it was something in Stormheim.

It seems that lots of people are getting those forgotten pet achievements, and are pushing hard on the server width. I guess next week all will be like always.

I keep getting an 503 error "Resource Limit Is Reached
The website is temporarily unable to service your request as it exceeded resource limit. Please try again later." I have to close the window wait a few minutes and reopen it.


wrote on 2022-01-01 18:05:40

Hey! Yeah, working on that. Some of the setup (cloudflare) is still missing. Once that's done it should be better. And if that still comes up, I'll increase the traffic limits for the account, which is now something I can do easily thanks to the new server setup :-)


wrote on 2022-01-02 17:13:28

Hey Guys, issue still happens. But instead of closing window and wait, just refresh the page (maybe multiple times) and you're done :)

It's working fast for me, cheers!

First of all Happy New year,
Hope it all works out as you have expected.

Congratulations on the new site! Looking forward to it!
