You may have noticed NG was down for a few minutes this morning, so down we didn't even have the maintenance animation up. This was because we were COMPLETELY DISCONNECTED FROM THE INTERNET. We were swapping bandwidth lines.

Until this morning, NG was connected to two 1gbps lines, each capped at 500mbps (1gbps total) with the ability to burst up to 2gbps and pay overage fees, which we did regularly.

As of today, NG is connected to a 10gbps line, capped at 5gbps.

To summarize, we have quintupled our bandwidth and are ready for big things in the future.

If you have Flash submissions here on NG and you haven't updated to 140x90 thumbnails yet, please do so! Our courageous icon mod team has tackled over 20,000 thumbnails but they need all the help and support they can get.

Monthly voting ends in three days! Check your account page to see if you are in the voting pool to select the Best of July. The best original movie (no commercial characters or music) will win $250!

Nathan is $1,500 away from his KickStarter Goal of raising $12,000 for his documentary! Please donate if you have the resources.

If you are in or near London, don't miss the London Meetup this weekend. Over 50 confirmed attendees!


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

You probably had some audio file triggered to play once it was done.

UPGRADE COMPLETE.

no commercial characters of music? I guess video game characters still count since the Kirby Collab made it on the ballot. But why not the latest Underdog of the Week Yoshi's Brawl? How do flashes get up there in the first place?


I usually frequent the VG and collaboration Forums. If you find me anywhere else, I'm lost and can't find my way back.

I tried to sign-in during that time. I thought my computer failed. I think it shaved a few months off my life.

I am happy to hear about the upgrade. I am eager to see what you do with it.

I think you mean "stop reading threads and go make Flashes reminding people that 100,000 icons is a friggin' lot."

Those can still win monthly awards but the cash prize goes to the highest ranking original submission.

Aha. I thought my computer was being gay again.

That seems like a pretty big improvement. Can't wait for the 'big things' that are about to happen.
