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. :)

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

Man all hetic

Response to Hosting Stuff 2003-10-13 09:41:09


as long the site is up and ready, its ok

Response to Hosting Stuff 2003-10-13 09:43:37


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: :(

Response to Hosting Stuff 2003-10-13 10:47:39


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).

Well okay if you say so.
I've been wondering about the bandwidth a while now and I've realized it's not like I've done anything to help. Sorry for all the complaints!

But seriously, you need to call the bandwidth people and ask them what's up because whenever you tell us about a bandwidth upgrade, something happens on their end that delays it for weeks and months.

Oh and thanks for the warning on a hectic month coming up.
