Funny, how there's a couple folks still around here. Love you guys.

So Ryan pointed out a snippet from Tor.com, it says
quote ::
A science fiction and fantasy site not quite like any you?ve seen before, mixing news, commentary, original stories and art, your own comments and conversations, and more. A place on the net you may find yourself wanting to visit?and participate in?every day.


We had a good laugh. Because long before everyone else, that's what we aimed at. And we did it. For a couple months.

Anyways, fucked that in the end it's Tor that's taking a shot at the target we painted. (Yes, fully aware no one knew we existed, but bear with me).

So anyways, as per Ryan's post, we have a new host now. I still have the framework of the iniquity engine, and have learned a lot - doing backend work for a living (yes, this is an awesome joke, someone draw a picture)

We've always started good, the only issue with DGN has been when I leave, it just falls apart. So, it'd be nice to actively recruit.

Whatever, let's give this one more try. I'm pretty sure i'm talking to Ryan and Mordeth, maybe a couple others. Might as well fire it back up, we have software, hardware, and now money to spend.

We can make this work.

For a couple months. I have a nuts work deadline for mid June, and then I kinda wanna get back into this.

We need a new name, and new ideas. So whoever's in for one more swing at it, shamirnandy@gmail.com

This will end badly, but it'll be fun for a bit.

Take it easy
Ish



edit: also pretty impressed this homemade board still works, mysql errors nonwithstanding. Pretty sure cause i'm levelled up so badass :)

The mysql errors on login/start of session are a side effect of the issues I had migrating the DB. Several tables were corrupt and wouldn't translate.

The mysql errors I get when I post are all you though, Mr. Ishamael.

I've got to give credit where credit is due; Linthos pointed the tor.com update out to me.

Yeah, i think our levels got too high, and it's mucking things up a bit. Had thought i had more time to fix such things. Weird things with user levels and all.

Don't think it's happening to anyone else... i hope.

I don't seem to have any problems logging in. Or posting.
