FSpaceRPG article

One of the biggest problems I’m now facing is that the Filemaker 6 unlimited database powering the FSpace website is now freezing up twice a week. This means the site becomes non-functional for long periods.

It’s happening because the product is an old one and the Server OS has moved on significantly, resulting in incompatibilities.

My Filemaker is 3 versions behind now. It will cost close to $3000 to get the latest version, something I can’t afford, and even if I could the site needs to be recoded because the CDML web engine has been dumped in favour of an XML based one.

Anyway all this means is that I’m in the crap, and FSpace may soon loose it’s nice content rich website.
