MRC Downtime

For the second time since we moved to dedicated webhosting, we suffered from a long period of downtime due to technical diffuculties. But, we're back!

So what happened? After a harddisk crash, a new harddisk and Debian Sarge were freshly installed on our webserver. It took us a while to get the server fully configged again, so we decided to introduce a couple of tweaks as well. The most noticeable of which are the new topics in the news section. You can now also browse for MSX in the Media and Photo shoot newsposts. We currently have several other updates in development at the moment and hope to introduce them in the relatively near future.

And thus, once again, we're back in action and here to stay! We have some fresh MSX news waiting for you and our ever active forums are just waiting to be used again. If you think we missed out on a bit of MSX news, don't hesitate to send it in to us. Happy MRC-ing!

Well, as soon as we can afford a second server, we will load-balance the whole shebang, ok? Smile

Noticing the new URL format in most of the MRC they really shouldn't whine about traffic costs... Smile

At our current location, traffic isn't really the issue anymore. An extra server/server upgrade still is Wink

I'm afraid a couple of e-mails were lost-in-space. As for the T-Shirt preorders: We will contact everybody of whom we did recieve a payment, yet lack sufficient addresses. If you sent us an e-mail and had no reply as-of-yet, please try and send it again.
