This site will be closed down on Friday 4th March so that the administration can perform an OS upgrade to resolve some (unnoticeable to the public) issues that have arisen recently. Apologies for the short notice. Service should be back to normal by Saturday morning at the latest.

We request that all site owners preferably back up their databases locally, or alternatively if this can't be done, e-mail myself with your cpanel access details and I will perform a Full CPanel Home backup and Database backup for you.

The board will be unavailable for this period. Please bear with us during this OS upgrade.

Has anyone ever used teamspeak ? Saves all the typing... :p http://www.goteamspeak.com/news.php

I've used teamspeak a lot, but then I'm a computer gaming nerd :)

trouble is you need someone to run a server that everyone can connect to, and when its busy you cant hear grapefruit for everyone talking at the same time.

Ahhh... we have gamers about do we?? In which case, check out the Game Servers running from www.over-clock.com (look down lefthand side of front page & in gaming section of forums) that currently run large multiplayer public servers for Desert Combat, Call of Duty, JointOps, CS, CS:S and JointOps:UO, new clan starting up for Battlefield2 soon too... as well as www.thefragfactory.co.uk who are running a 120 player LAN event the weekend before April MMRA Racemeet that my company sponsors... There is also a public TeamSpeak server running on the GameServers.

The Geek crown has already been claimed....

Scheduled timeslot for the maintenance is 8pm thru 1am, however, it generally can be a few hours either way so am expecting Manguish or one of the admins to close the forums at around 4pm ish so that I can begin backing up this and all the other sites that are affected.

http://www.skype.com/

Here is a free communication tool if you need to keep in contact with your m8's. The quality is very clear and you can have conference calls on it so your fri night chat can still go ahead. It leaves both your hands free for drinking as there is no need to type ! ;) Best of all, it's free !!

We use this in my Call of Duty clan (www.bandofmercenaries.net) along with Teamspeak but find Skype to be better quality.

Dunno why or how long the forums have been down for, figured one of the Admins had done summat but seeing as not online by today I've taken it on meself to attack the MySQL database and fix the problem... which I've done and the forums are now back online... so.... can anyone fill me in on any more info as to what happened and when??? What was getting done at the time? Or was it a case of "woke up this morning and site was down" and not had time to do anything about it yet?

Chute

As the only moderator left in the country you should carry the can for this Chute, and incidentally, I find monkeys the most attractive of all animals.

Trying to get me banned.... tut tut tut

A wondeful trick: remove members' ability to change sigs and avatars, then go on a rogue sig & avatar changing session... cos they can't change em back once you've disabled it... :D
