Just a quick update: the 2013 Salary Reports have been added. Sorry it took so long. I had most of them finished but had to re-check them and then sort of forgot about them. They are now all up and can be accessed from the NPB Salaries page.
Apologies for the delay.
I've been working on a little section for 2013 Summer Koshien Stats. It is still far from done, but I thought I'd go ahead and open the section up to anyone that might be interested. It contains stats from the start of the tournament through to August 15. The index page will give you the full list of players that have appeared in tournament. Clicking into the team will show the roster for that team. Clicking into inidividual names will give you their stats for the tournament. You can also click into individual games for hitters to see more information about their at bats.
If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please feel free to either post it down below in the comments, or drop me an e-mail at gen [at] yakyubaka dot com.
I apologize for the recent server issues. I'm trying to iron them, but it's taking me a lot longer than I thought it would. Hopefully I'll have things fixed soon. Until then, please bear with me.
Apologies for the inconvenience.
UPDATE 1/21 @ 9:05pm
Things seem to have stabilized (knock on wood). If any of you notice problems, please let me know, either by posting a comment below, or by dropping me an e-mail.
This site is currently running on a server that is a bit outdated. While it is good enough to run the site, there are some security issues that can only be addressed by moving to a new server. The physical move should not take very long, but getting the new IP address mapped to the domain name can take anywhere from 24 to 48 hours (sometimes a lot less, sometimes a lot more). That means Yakyubaka will not be accessible during this time.
I have already backed-up most of the data on this server for the move. I still have a few more things to do though. Assuming I can get it all done within the next few hours, I plan to begin the move to the new server. The IP switch on the domain name will be made once all the files have been uploaded.
I will post another update within the next few hours to let everyone know where I am in the schedule and whether or not the server upgrade is going to happen.
I know it is sudden, but unfortunately due to my schedule, this is the best I can do.
UPDATE @ 4:36am - The upgrade will take place at some point this weekend, but I'm not entirely sure when yet. I'm waiting to hear back on a couple of things with my webhost and once everything is settled, the new server should go online.
Since it is past 4:30am though, I figure I'll hit the sack now, get some shut-eye, and resume when I wake up.
I'll post another update when I have more details.
UPDATE @ 11:32am - Just a quick update: still waiting to hear back from my webhost. It's probably taking a bit longer for them to respond because it's the weekend.
UPDATE 1/14 @ 2:56am - Another quick update: the new server is still being provisioned. Not really sure how long it's going to take. Hopefully it'll be up before the end of the three day weekend here in Japan.
UPDATE 1/14 @ 11:49am - The new server is up and running so I will be spending time setting things up and transferring files over. Once that's done, I'll be updating the IP assigned to the domain name. I'll post another update when I do that.
UPDATE 1/14 @ 5:03pm - I have begun transferring data over. I have also modified portions of the domain and plan to go through with the full changes shortly, which means the site could become inaccessible at some point.
UPDATE 1/14 @ 8:31pm - Ok, transfer/upgrade done for this site. Still have a couple more to go.
I hope everyone had a Happy Holiday Season and is currently having a Happy New Year.
For those keeping track:
- Yakubaka.com opened on September 1, 2009.
- Since September 1, 2009: 19,634 posts and 186 pages.
- Since January 1, 2012: 5,423 posts and 62 pages.
I want to thank everyone for a nice 2012 and look forward to another 5,000+ post 2013.
Just wanted to let everyone know that I'll be out of Tokyo for most of the day today. I will most likely not be able to post any updates while I am away, but will once I return in the late evening.
Apologies for the inconvenience.
Happy New Year!
Wishing all the readers here a safe, happy, and healthy 2012.
I plan on live blogging as much of this year's draft as I can. Unfortunately, I won't have access to Sky A like I've had the past 2 years and will instead be relying on TBS (TV). That means there's a good chance I won't be able to provide results as quickly as I'd like once their coverage ends (4:53pm - 5:45pm). Fortunately, there's also Nippon Hoso on the radio (5:00pm - 7:00pm).
In any case, this is just a general heads up that while I will be blogging the draft, there may be some slight delays in updates in the later rounds.
Just a quick update: I'll be locked away in recording studio again for the entire morning and most of the afternoon on Thursday (9/1).
My apologies for the inconvenience and the interruption.
A quick heads up: I probably won't have access to a computer for most of the day again today due to work. Fortunately, the NPB has the day off today so I won't have to worry about box scores and game updates. I will post whatever news updates the occur during the day once I get back in from work.
My apologies for the inconvenience.
