Posted by Data in Cortex Command - June 3rd, 2008

As many of you have noticed, the data center in which our server lives has had some severe problems the last few days. First a transformer exploded and knocked down three walls around it, plus all nearby electrical equipment and cabling! Luckily no one was hurt. Or killed.

The techs brought in a generator, but a breaker on it failed last night so they had to bring in another generator today which just went online. More details here.

Hopefully things will keep on humming from now on, but if not, at least you know what’s going on. This doesn’t affect our webstore or licensing server, so don’t worry if you just placed an order.

However, if you did send anything to or since Friday, and didn’t get a response yet, you might want to re-send as it likely didn’t make it though!

    Oh wow the bastards think another explosion will happen because the transformer of the OTHER-SIDE will make it kablew, more like tiddly wanks are too careful, which should be done in more fatal jobs, like Alaskan King Crab Fishing, or Walking on live Power Lines, not like neighborhood ones, the Large Menacing Ones, and fixing them.

    Well atleast URealms Episode 4 coming out tommorow …

    Also, let’s start up “I shot a man in Reno”. I’ll start.
    I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die. The next ones have to end in a rhyme with die; ex. ‘I shot a man in Reno, and I didn’t even cry’.

    W0000t Post 150!!!!!!!!
    Also, let’s see.

    B20 release : 1/4/2008.

    Estimated B21 Release : 7/9/2008

    Estimated B22 Release : 10/18/2008.

    Estimated Full product release : 12/25/2008

  12. Hellfire999 - # June 26th, 2008 at 10:44 am

    Full product release will probably be early 2009

  13. Octyl - # June 26th, 2008 at 11:36 am

    Post 250, you mean.

    Do you really think that Build 22 will be the last before the full product? I don’t. I just hope releases will be more often. I think it was build 15… it was really buggy, and there was a fix within a few days. I just want a bit more Devlog action.

    Estimated Full product release : 90/02/5221

  16. aspect - # June 26th, 2008 at 7:55 pm


    Roy, We can only hope the full product will be released by Christmas.

  17. Thorpey - # June 27th, 2008 at 5:58 am

    @Lord Time
    That would have been more amusing if “90” was possible as a day or month (I use dd/mm/yyyy)

  18. brinlarden - # June 27th, 2008 at 6:19 am

    dont ever release the full project, just keep making to better.
    thats the fun part!

  19. Thorpey - # June 27th, 2008 at 9:16 am

    I meant Lord Tim, just to clarify :-p

    That’s me yawning…

  22. Tea - # June 27th, 2008 at 12:44 pm

    Roy-G-Biv, I doubt the FULL thing would come as soon as that.
    And even then I’ve heard talk of different add-on things you can buy separately.

  23. Hellfire999 - # June 27th, 2008 at 4:30 pm

    I said what what…

  24. The Advisor - # June 27th, 2008 at 6:16 pm

    Well I have finally found a computer during my camping trip to some french town. Oh and Lord T. you do know there are only 12 months, not 90+. Besides my estimate on the full product release is 3­/21/1337 A.S.(After Spore).

    P.S. I hate french keyboards.

  25. Azukki - # July 14th, 2008 at 3:29 am

    This would have been much less believable if it had knocked down the forth wall too.
