Post subject: Docking Station Servers Online For Testing! YAY!

Docking Station Servers Semi-Up Again!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
06/07/2003 - The following was posted to Docking Station Aftermath by Sparky, 'one of the Gameware Europe guys' - the following is fantastic news, and is hopefully the sign of things to come! Please read the post in full before trying to connect to the DS server. Happy

Ladies and gentlemen, at around 23:00 hours localtime, here in the UK, one of the Docking Station servers was switched back on to make sure it would work.

Currently we are *not* running a full system, hence there is no redundancy to cope with any system failures or overload. That said if you would like the chance to once more enter the Warp then now's your chance...

To do so you will need to delete (or rename) your current server.cfg file, if you are unsure where this is then please ask. Doing this will force Docking Station to seek out the root servers and will connect. Assuming the machine survives Wink

Please note: Currently the following services are *not* running

- New registrations (sorry)
- Forums
- League tables
- In fact anything that looks vaguely like a webpage

This is purely the core Docking Station system being tested.

Also note that until I say otherwise the system *is* still under test and is subject to disruption from time to time, especially as I need to replace half a dozen cooling fans that have failed horribly in the machines Sad That's what happens when you switch things off that have been running for so long Wink

On behalf of Gameware Europe and Gameware development I'd like to thank you for your patience whilst we've been getting systems working again, it all takes time, but I can assure you that our commitment to Creatures and the Creature Labs brand is both very real and very strong. Normal service will resume as fast as we can manage it!

Sparky

No, in America it was Weebles, and they were toys.

'Weebles' were toys that were popular in the 1970s. They were small human-like figures that had round bottoms. They had a theme song that went "Weebles wobble but they don't fall down!" They wobble because they are weighted on the bottom. So, through the physics of a counterweight system, they pop right back up when flicked around.
