HLP moved to a new server - summary
As you probably noticed in this topic, HLP moved to a new server. This same server hosts both hard-light.net and game-warden.com. MatthewPapa owns the server and pays the expenses. Both communities admins will do their best to ensure that financial situation stays on green and proper running of the server can be ensured. Both communities had a donation drive earlier, all the donations we have received will be used to pay for the monthly expenses.

The main techical admins will be MatthewPapa and taylor, with HLP admins such as me backing them up whenever necessary. Give MatthewPapa your thanks for providing the server and taylor for setting up majority of the server. Before the move both HLP and GW admins were well aware that hosting both communities on the same server will hurt redundancy in a case of technical problems. But the truth is that we need to minimize financial risks and improve stability that way.

As for why we had to move, this topic was heavily discussed here. To sum it up, our earlier server was unrealiable and plagued by a myriad of technical problems and our host did not even reply to our inquiries. That's right, not a single reply regardless of what channel we used to contact them. Avoid Servelocity at all costs if you ever consider getting a virtual private/dedicated server. Our new host is Layered Technologies and this new server is not virtual but a dedicated server. I hope our experience with the new host will prove to be a smooth and pleasing one.

The move itself went quite painlessly, now we need to wait about 12 additional hours to ensure that DNS has fully propagated around the globe before we will change the forums, etc. to use hard-light.net instead of direct IP-address. Until then you might need to login twice and may encounter some problems when using hard-light.net instead of IP-address.

Majority of the hosted project sites are working as they did before, a few such as The Apocalypse Project, Cold Element, Skippy's Campaign List are not working properly and these sites will have our attention as soon as possible.

Also, hosted project download links that refer to http://downloads.hard-light.net are not working at the moment.

Re: HLP moved to a new server - summary
uh oh, that sounds bad...
Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made
Were every stalk on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky!

Jeez, people. Such worry-warts. :p It's all taken care of - it never was bad per se, just urgent, time-wise. :)

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill
