The site was down for about twelve hours in Sunday - sorry about that. Remember that bandwidth upgrade I kept talking about? It still isn't final. The problem is either with the hosting facility not hooking it up right, or our hardware. Whatever the case, we are making plans to move all the servers from NYC to Philly within the next month... If all goes well the site won't be down for more than 12 hours. I'll have more updates as they come... It's gonna be a hectic month. :)


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

Are you gonna host it yourself, like in the good old days? I remember a picture of a tower in a corner of a room, and THAT was Newgrounds!

That was an internal network server, not the NG webserver. It just connected Tom, Wade, Ross, and anyone else in the old NG HQ.

Agreed! Sundays is like the day i usually rack up the most blam/prot points, but i'm not one to complain for such an entertaining, interactive, free service of this NG domain you provide us with

While we're still on the subject of racking up points, I don't understand how I get blam and protect points. It says I'll get em if the movie is either blammed or protected. Once, my vote was the blamming vote, and I didn't get anything at all from it except some targetting animation. <_<

Now to get back on topic... I miss the days when Xiao Xiao was something I drooled over. Life was just so simple back then. :sad: :(

I didn't get to deposit... but I guess it is worth it.

I'm looking foreward to see how fast NG goes when the new server comes.
Keep it up (the server).
