This is a great hypothesis, arfarf, and makes pefect sense. I hope that you're right.

Re: What's with Hungercity again?




I haven't read this whole thread that started in '08 but now wonder how many times in this threads life has HC gone down like this?

Re: What's with Hungercity again?

I was thinking the same. I suspect that HC may be in line for Guinness record for tracker down time. At least one very extended outage is undocumented during the life of this thread, at least 4 outages are documented here, and at least one protracted downtime is alluded to in early pages of this thread as happening before this thread was started.

I can confirm this, at least in part. I know when the does go through my garden they cause a lot of damage. One can only imagine what a few does could do to electronic files!

It's a good thing that there won't be any bucks going through.

I hope he gets it back online soon.

already looking forward to HC's next big outage - but can't do that until it's up & running again....

Beer City (Portland, OR) is more fun than HungerCity. Having a great time up here.

Re: What's with Hungercity again?

Is there any recent talk of a new site run by the old staff to replace HC yet?

Re: What's with Hungercity again?

Sacredtown is back up, so it looks like at least part of ShaReeF's new server is working.
