Default STATUS: New server up and running

Hi everyone -

As you may have noticed, we had a major server malfunction this week which resulted in some fairly severe data corruption. Our only option to move forward was to set up a brand new server and do a complete system restore from our most recent set of complete backups. Unfortunately those backups were 4 weeks old. This means we've lost all data between roughly January 30th and February 27th.

If you're reading this message, it means you're on our new, upgraded server. You should be able to play normally again from here on out, though you will notice that any points/trophies accrued over the past four weeks are now gone. The good news: the new server is a major step up from our last one, and should provide much, much faster response times and fewer needed maintenance outages.

I sincerely apologize for the interruption and the headaches involved. Its been a rough week, but I'm hoping we're now through the worst of it.

Thanks as always for playing!

Stephen

Default Time out

Actually, I am timing out constantly. I cannot play more than 2 games before it starts timing out for up to 15 min.

We're working on this issue now - there's some fine tuning we need to do with Apache since its a brand new setup. Sorry for any interruptions!

Thanks for all the things you do behind the scenes -- it can't be easy dealing with all this.
