The site should be faster & better so stay tuned for the goodies (as soon as I return home).

Worthplaying Site Maintenance Complete ...

by Rainier on Oct. 19, 2003 @ 2:10 a.m. PDT | Filed under News

As you may have noticed ( judging from the many emails! :) the site was down for part of the day. This was due to performing maintenance on the Worthplaying web box as well as one of the fileservers. Weekend is usually slower in news & updates so we took the time to install some new (and much faster) hardware as well as adding more hd space to one of the file servers. Upgrades never go as smooth as one would like so it all took a bit longer than we had hoped for. Either way, things should run a lot faster so it was worth the sweat. Njoy!
