GDC got a new server. Sorry about that downtime.

We're back. We've upgraded GDC to a new more powerful server, that just so happens to (more importantly) cost us less per month.

If you saw a white page for a little while as you tried to load GDC, that means you were looking at the old server. Internet providers have to log IP changes when a site changes from one server to a new one, that process (called DNS propagation) can take anywhere from a few minutes to 48 hours. It just depends on each provider and how quickly they realize the change.

If you're reading this message, that means you're on the new server and everything is cool.

There may be some unexpected downtime over the next few days while we make sure everything on the server is configured correctly. I'm hoping there won't be though. You should be able to enjoy the site like normal.

For those of you who had no idea the site even went offline, well, fine, we don't care about you either.

I'd like to congratulate the mod team on doing this while I was asleep, thereby not affecting my GDC experience. Top quality service!

Aww I love when people thank me for doing things that I had no part in and had no idea it was going to happen.

Chat mods don't count. Sorry.

I'm not sorry.

I want to feel sorry for Liam, but I fear the cool kids will shun me if I do

I felt so lost yesterday without GDC. All of my computers, phone and Kindle took forever finding the new server. Glad that's over.

So now that Liam is chat mod, I can be media mod, right?

Sounds pretty fair to me.

Can I be a chat mod? I promise not to call all the chatfreaks niggers as much as I already do.

Hmm. No one has nominated you yet. Weird.

Somebody needs to fix the active forum topics thing on the main GDA site.

Thanks. Got it fixed.
