Re: [Ark] Christmas Event 2018-12-05!

The first event will be a building contest. The player who creates the most realistic personal house/getaway both inside and out will win one of the first two rexes I tamed. The rex was 150 in the wild and I perfect-tamed it to 224 and leveled it myself. It currently has a bit over 15k HP, 1.68k sta...

Re: [All Services] Unscheduled downtime

As of 0030hrs EDT service has been restored. Given that this went from zero-hour and was down for exactly half an hour, my bet is that Spectrum did some kind of maintenance. Everything is online again!

Re: [All Services] Short downtime to move servers...

TS3 is now online again. Took a while to locate but I had a brand new 5-port gigabit switch in hiding. As a bonus, I upgraded all connections to shielded Cat6. I found I had a bunch of STP Cat6 laying around too!

Re: [All Services] Short downtime to move servers...

Problem. My 8-port gigabit switch will not turn on. Power supply tested bad. It failed after seven years of constant uptime. I grabbed a 5-port gigabit switch and will be home soon to restore services. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I am pushing this back half an hour. Outdoor work kept me out too long.

Re: [All Services] Downtime due to hurricane...

As of 2018-09-18 at 2300hrs the USGS has the river at 61.41ft and there is no flooding on any of the roads near my home. Well, there are a few roads where they go through low areas several feet lower than the rest, and they are flooded, but my road and the connecting roads are dry. As such I decided...
