Well, I can't really express how angry I am in text. If only you could see my flailing arms. When the site went down Friday, I was under the assumption that it would be back up later that evening. It's now 1 am on Tuesday, and the site has just gone back up.
Anything that could have gone wrong with the new server installation did go wrong. What should have taken a few hours took 3 and a half days. The entirety of the blame goes to my hosting, who did the most spectacularly awful job possible. Even in the last 24 hours, there was not even the slightest hint of urgency in fixing my problems. I will be finding a new host as soon as I return from Berlin. I regret the timing of my trip as well as the fact that these are servers that I have purchased, as I will most likely have to sell them. I have lost a good deal of ad revenue as well as wasted money on hardware purchases. I am looking into how I will be compensated.
Adura, my server admin, has done an amazing job and is in no way to blame for the downtime. He's the reason the site is working at all now, and did a large portion of my host's work for them.
Unfortunately, there seem to be previous issues with my host's firewall popping up... most likely because we are now using a new set of IP addresses. This could mean some connectivity issues until they get their shit together.
I get into my office tomorrow morning, and I will update the game as soon as I have a chance. Hopefully the firewall issues won't be too bad. Sorry again and thanks for being patient (if you were).

By fuzzyjred on Aug. 5th, 2011 7:34PM
And once again, Jim you need to make it so when you log in you can press enter instead of having to click login. It's just a useful feature.
By trotterski on Aug. 5th, 2011 7:44PM
@fuzzyjred, it works in firefox. Just not chrome. And I haven't tried internet exploder.

Do we really need to know that? And why did you crash your computer purposely? According to the
"without playing happy wheels so I crashed my computer"
