As many of you have obviously realised… FROM THE HUGE AMOUNT OF FRICKEN SPAM IN MY XFIRE FROM LIKE 5 DIFFERENT PEOPLE!!1!~, the website has been dropping out.

The fault was with the server itself, and the hoster has promised it is now fixed. They have a 99.99% uptime promise or something like that which in reality allows for quite a bit of problems.

After they had initially admitted the server had a problem, I got another chap stating the problem was my end. I then blasted them for such crap (as their own server status was showing the problem) and told them if they took 5 seconds to check their log, they would have noticed the piece of bullshit slipping from their tongue.

A supervisor then later apologised for the problems and the previous dicks response.

The hoster is one of the biggest in the world and has a good record so I’m not having any plans to jump ship. THink this is the first time in years this site has received a problem from them anyway.

I love it when websites are down, always reminds me of the webguy videos

http://www.thewebsiteisdown.com/

Also apparently you still have an unterminated string constant on the homepage.

Thanks for that poopy pants.

That small error has been corrected.

I may start working on the stie again in the near future but it’s hard to find the motivation with so much inactivity.

We probably need to keep the recruitment drive in overtime and recruit some younger players (eg teenagers have no life… or games=life for them). That way there’s always life that other players can comeback too (after experiencing life) and find an active clan.

The sql error was part of the site going down. It even corrupted the session part of the forums.
