Well, we’ve been down awhile, haven’t we? For the sake of filling in those that didn’t know, I’ll copy the updates I gave in our semi-pseudo-faux-forum.

We’re being moved to a new server to fix a problem with our Ensim control panel that was preventing us from doing much of anything, such as backups, uploads, etc.
It was supposed to be a seemless transition. I suppose it is not.

What happened was that our ENSIM control panel just died, along with many others at Fuitadnet, back in mid-May. The support staff decided the quickest and most painless way to fix the problem would be to simply migrate everyone’s data to a new server with a properly working manager, rather than try to fix the old one while keeping everyone up. This was supposed to be a seemless move.
However, for whatever reason, our DNS record did not update. I’ve had fuitadnet refresh it three times, and the third time is the charm. If you check right now, Jux is finally functional again. Part of the problem was that I couldn’t receive email while Jux was still down, and part of the problem was…I have no fucking idea.
It’s going to be another day or so until everything is back up and running. The main page is fine now, but our subdomains still aren’t, and this is likely something I will have to reconfigure by hand (or else is a further problem with the DNS servers). I’ll have the new IP address of our ENSIM manager by tonight, but the staff page isn’t working yet, and that means it’ll be at least another 12-24 hours before I can update the website itself.
This is not something I took lightly, nor something planned.

Staff subdomain still down. If I could get in touch with Kenny I’d try to restore old /staff/, but I can’t do that right now. I think he’s reformatting his computer for linux or some shit, and I don’t really want to call his house unless necessary.
I’m optimistic about being able to update by tonight, still.
And that’s where we are now. Our main domains aren’t up yet, but we do have some access to our news and feature poster scripts, as you can see, so we’re back in semi-business.
Lots happened this past week when we were down. The first real kickball game of the season was held, despite nearly being stopped for rain. A feature on the outcome is coming. Team Hannah won by 5 points, 19 to 24. Team Hannah consisted of: Hannah Bobo, Samantha Boylan, Travis Rosenbaum and Peter Rosconi. Team Graeme was Graeme Hefner, Scott Hankinson, Kelley Sosebee and Vivian Rath.
Given another full inning, we would have trashed them.
Also, when it comes to WoW, I now roll with an epic mount. Just thought I’d mention that.
Finally, my school assignment for the summer is to watch Rear Window, Vertigo, Psycho, North by Northwest and the Birds. Lucky fucker = me.
