    Apologies for the downtime lately, I have upgraded our server back to Linux. Everything seems to be a lot snappier!

    I don't know, what "snappier" means (my Translator sucks), but I'm glad, to use SSRG again! I was shocked at first, because I was on a Trip for the last 5 Days and now: "index test" holy shit! But, it's okay!

    Aww, now I can't make jokes about the SSRG on Windows Server 2003. :eek:


    Oh well, at least stuff that couldn't be done on Windows (such as CGI:IRC) can be used now.

    Qjimbo is essentially saying that SSRG is more stable after the downtime Selbi :eek: (I think).


    P.S. I noticed there is a slight bit of a pattern for the site background, as I havn't noticed it before

    He means the server will be faster in response times.

    So, that's why server was down, or what? it said "Database error".

    Look at the date and time the posts were made (January 2009), it may not be related to this most recent one.

    We've been having problems with hacking attempts against the server (probably just script kiddie/bot stuff) however we've now locked everything down to the best of our ability so we should have less downtime.
