Since launching the new version of the site, we've had over 20,000 file downloads (several hundred GB of bandwidth) so the site is getting used and serving it's purpose as an archive :)

Re: Goodbye to FreeSpace 2 Sector
I just tried to access FSFiles but I always get a "Server not found" error. isup.me also says it's down.
What happened?

Re: Goodbye to FreeSpace 2 Sector
We had a hard drive failure. I'm now in the process of changing to a new host - but stuff like backups and raid have to be setup first. It should be back online in 1-2 days. :)

For those that care, our forums are (again) back up and running @ http://sectorgame.com/forums/   - Not that anyone uses it anymore :P

I checked yesterday actually.
Karajorma's Freespace FAQ. It's almost like asking me yourself.

Still a few bugs to work out with the new theme (and new software)... But it at least looks something like the old forums now.

Re: Goodbye to FreeSpace 2 Sector (& hello to FreeSpace Files)
Hi Hunter,

I don't seem to be able to upload anything to Freespace Files -- the progress bar always dies out a low percentage of completion.  At least one other person mentioned the same thing in IRC.  Is there an issue presently with file uploads?

Thanks!

I've been seeing the same problem with downloads.
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

Hi - What were you trying to upload, and how big was it? Did you get any error messages?

Looking into it at the moment... So far I can't see any issues, could have been network congestion on that particular day? Please re-check.

Expect random downtime today, doing some switchovers.
