we don't need any .of that.  we have tiger already up and going for a long time.  Hannes has been keeping it going.  all we need is a tourneybot there and people.  there are already other bots to play with.  to get there, just change your fibs.com to ti-ga.com and you're good to go.  ;)))  in fibszilla, go to preferences, then change fibs.com to ti-ga.com.  also change in the connect box that comes up.  it's very easy to do.

if and when fibs is back up, we can change back.  I don't know if this is a permanent condition with fibs or not, but we do have an option, so see you all on tiger. ;)))

of course we are thankful for the years Patti has put in for us and hope the reason is not a personal one like health, but this is a solution for now and thankful to Hannes that we have a backup.

F.I.B.S. general support / Time to get FIBS out of the closet? (attic)
« Last post by BackBurner on August 05, 2017, 05:12:18 PM »
It has come to light that FIBS runs on "a server in Patti's attic".
I run a server in my attic and it uses $20-30 of electricity every month. And then there is the hardware maintenance cost (hard drives, fans, upgrades).  I need to have a physical server for my consulting business but, for something like FIBS, a virtual server (Amazon, Google, Azure) might be cost effective.

I expect that Patti is on holiday and that the server, which lives in her attic, has gone down for some reason. It's a reminder to us all how much we value it and should appreciate that Patti has supplied and overseen a free server for us all for many years. Thanks Patti.

Socksey suggests using ti-ga.com for the server.  I am using fibzilla.  Does anyone know how to change the server from fibs.com to ti-ga.com?
 
Very easy.  In the little box that shows your username and password, there's a line for fibs.com
Just delete that and enter ti-ga.com
BUT you have to be aware your FIBS username & password won't work at TigerGammon, you have to create a new account there.
I am not 100% sure if when you leave your username and password areas blank and then hit Connect, you can create an account.
An easy way would be to use the TigerGammon browser client, create your account, then enter that info into FIBzilla.
Here's the link for the browser client:

You don't miss your water till the well runs dry.
I hope Fibs still has a pulse.  Maybe we need a backup.
Or someone with a durable power of attorney.  Anyone know, if
there's anything that can be done besides chasing down Patti?
