MP Server temporarily 'gone'!!!!
« on: May 12, 2011, 02:42:40 AM »
Dear all,

after the server went off-line again a few days ago, like it has done every month for the past 5 months or so, the server host told me the OS (32-bit Win Server 2003) had become corrupted. Don't ask me how, ask Bill Gates.

Anyway, we decided to install a brand NEW server, running 64-bit Windows Server 2008. They are setting things up for me now.

It costs more (of course), but most of all, we (that means Darryl to a great extent) need to re-install the LOT ! I know Darryl has a full time job again, so he will not have much time. And my dear wife is coming home from 3 weeks in the Caribbean (and with Dengue Fever) so my spare time will be extremely limited too for the next week or so.

Apologies for this, but it is a little beyond my powers..... I will keep you posted about the server's status here.

Thanks for listening,
Francois

Thanks for the update - now I know why I can't connect!

Francois ... we could put up a sticky that went to a PayPal so folks could contribute for the new Multiplayer server ... any little bit would help.  You could set it up on your end, and I'd put the link on a sticky in the Multiplayer area of the forum ... happy to do it.

All little bits help indeed, especially in these troubled times. That is a very kind offer, Doug.
I already have a 'donate button' on my MP server page over at FSAddon: http://fsaddon.eu/wpfsaddon/?page_id=14

You think we can use that, or do you want me to make a special one?
