DOSGames.com is back ...

Post by emmzee » Mon Feb 24, 2003 11:48 pm

Apparently the dedicated server that hosts dosgames.com and a handful of other sites needed more RAM, cuz it was behaving VERY BADLY the last day or so :no: ... sooooooooo ... one expensive 512meg RAM upgrade later, everything should be fine again. :D

Dosgames.com worked fine. Then when I clicked on the forum, it was as slow as slow can be. Then 2 hours later ALL of DOSGAMES.com woulnd't open.

Yes, the server was running very slow. I mean <b>very</b> slow. Like 10 minutes to display a forum.

Ain't Mississauga and Shitby, say, 8 miles apart? If so, you should be in the exact same timezone as Emmzee. (FWIW, it was posted at 10:48 Central)

Ah ha ha! Shitby! :D


Ahem. I didn't notice anything, probably because at the time it happened I was drifting through the world of dreams.


No, not wet dreams.

I had a message here and decided it was in the wrong forum. Tried to delete and found the delete box gone. Tried to backspace it clean and it said I had to leave a message. Went to other messages I'd made and found the same thing. I hope you haven't removed the delete message function. I am logged on correctly.

If somebody posts below you, you can no longer remove it. You can remove it as long as there's nobody posted below you, I think. This is a good system so that the rest of the threads make sense.

I'm not sure, though.....I'm a mod on most of my forums. The ones that I'm not a mod on, it's not phpbb.

Nope, I can delete before they post after me, only in some forums.
