OMG!! News!!!

Yes that’s right… I waiting exactly an entire month to post news here on purpose :-) Pfft… let’s see what I got to share with you this month errr, today ;-)

I don’t think I’ll be bringing back the Hardfought game server as you all knew it anytime soon. It’s just too expensive… and the way the economy has been the past year, there’s quite the shortage of free rides and special deals. Just a lil FYI on that in case any of you were wondering :-/ I am however, prepping a box for Neverwinter Nights still… word is, it’s due out early this summer. I’m actively trying to get onto any kind of beta program with that as much as possible. This is something I can run off my DSL line and still have things run smooth (at least that’s what Bioware says…) so I’ll give it a shot and see how it pans out running something like that publicly.

Since the original Hardfought game server has no use anymore since this past Fragwire event, I’ve decided to turn it into our webserver. That’s why the site was down for most of the day today… rebuilt the hardware and OS from scratch. So now instead of the webserver being a lowly P3-500, it’s now a beefed up dual P3-900… w0oT!! Been wanting/needing to upgrade the webserver for quite some time, figured what the hell. Gives me a chance to brush up on some stuff as well, keep me current :-) Msgboard and voting poll should work as usual… if any of you out there were using my exchange service for email, get in contact with me, I’ll need to re-create your email account.

YES… I will update the voting poll soon, I promise… nyah! :-P

DAoC news – our guild is now pretty strong with a very solid base of high 30’s and low to mid 40’s level characters, and just about all of us have started 2-3 extra players to boot. We have also just recently joined the All-Father Alliance on our server/realm (Guinevere/Midgard) so hopefully we’ll start to make our presence as a guild more well-known out on the RvR battlefields. We’re part of the Northguard longship in this alliance. The Albions took our strength relic last week, and we had plans to get that back, except the Albion frontier zone server couldn’t handle the load and crashed on us :-( Back to the drawing board I suppose… oh yeah, I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, to the right is a DAoC server monitor, specifically for RvR happenings on the Guinevere server. It updates itself every hour, on the hour.

Gonna wrap up this post for now, I wanna get in some DAoC time before I gotta hit the sack… work at 6am on the weekends kinda sucks :-P Oh yeah before I forget… in the pictures section is a new link for every picture I’ve ever taken of my pets, Scout and Ed. Feel free to drop by and take a look. See you online gang, I’ll try to find reasons to post more often. Until next time…
