If you see any administrators online today, you may ask for a V-Day present. :) You must be single and don’t have anyone to spend the day with in order to qualify for this.

Scheduled Server Maintenance

February 3rd, 2010 No comments

We will be performing some maintenance work on the server this Thursday, February 4th between 11:00 PM and 11:59 PM ET. The server will be closed and unavailable during that time. Please plan your schedule accordingly.

If the maintenance is completed ahead of the schedule, we will make the server available before the maintenance period is over. During that period, please check the server status or IRC for latest updates.

Update: This has been completed successfully.

Massive Updates!

January 21st, 2010 No comments

Good news everyone! Here are the recent changes made to the server:

  1. The server is now back up and running from the power outage we’ve experienced recently. The power was out for a full day, due to an underground wiring problem. Fortunately for all of us, no data seems to have been lost. (No, you didn’t lose 500 million zeny)
  2. We’ve transferred everything from the old server to the new server. This was required because we were not able to perform any additional updates on the old server due to an OS/compiler compatibility issue. Luckily, this move ended up being much easier and painless than we anticipated.
  3. The server is now completely up-to-date and contains all the updates we’ve missed from the previous few months. I was going to post all the updates, but there is quite a bit, so everyone should just check them out! ;)

Service Interruptions

January 18th, 2010 No comments

Due to prolonged power outage, some of our services have been affected. The following is a list with ETA of affected services:

Grinder – All servers down. ETA: 2 days to restore server files. No rollback is anticipated.
File Server – Down. ETA: Late tonight.

All other servers are located elsewhere so they are unaffected. :-)

Happy New Year!

January 11th, 2010 No comments

Happy new year everyone! (well, actually, some of us are still waiting for the Chinese new year…)

We have started the new year with some updates. Here goes:


  • Minor updates (too minor to report). We do plan to make some noticeable changes in the near future. Please stay tuned.


  • RSS feed announcements have been moved to the #feeds channel.
  • IRC games such as our infamous Black Jack have been moved to the #games channel.
  • Some of the bots may have their features transferred to another bot. This is to ensure that all the bots will have all the resources available to handle requests.


  • A new server is still being worked on and tested. Only critical updates will be included on the current server. Once the new server is ready, expect a flood of updates.
  • We do not have any plan to close the server down, so do not feel that you will lose all your work on the server. Even though the game is aging, we hope to see and obtain more updates soon.

Patch Server Fixed

December 10th, 2009 No comments

The patch server is now back online. You may get onto the server normally without needing to bypass the patch server anymore. Sorry for the inconvenience.

On a side note, we are still in the process of moving the server to a different computer (as the latest server code has not been building on our OS/platform for months). I’ll let you guys know when the transition will take place in advance. We will do our best to minimize the downtime.
