    Okay... we're back! Word is Pete spilled his coffee on the server while... uh, browsing the internet.. and wiped out BU for two days. Not sure if that's true or not, but good to be back live all the same. ;)

    Nice to see BU back up :)

    My bet was on Raptor trying to overclock the servers ;)

    just a thought

    my normal admin practices include remote administration. ssh, vpn with remote desktop, eh anything. browsing the web at the server is dangerous in itself let alone drinking coffee. :) oh by the way i thought maybe the headline provided to me via rss had something to do with a revamped darkmatch mod, like in unreal 1.

    It was accurate, just late. If you had any problems connecting to BU between Wednesday to Friday then it was the Level3 vs Cogent issue.

    Weird, I have to scroll down REALLY far to get to the news. The top part has the background and menu, but no news, until I scroll down.

    I think the gay robots attacked the server. Can we try and overclock the server? I want this text to download .001 seconds faster damnit! :D
