Happy 2010 + Server updates + new backup system + january competition

HAPPY 2010. Another decade gone...

I heard that the server was down a lot yesterday? It's funny that the day when I'm not home everything screws up haha but it's okay, the guys are just doing some IP migration, so there shouldn't be anymore downtime, sorry about that! There are 1 or 2 more software problems they're looking into over the next few days so things might be a bit bumpy but it should be okay.

Alright, now for all of your piece of minds, I have paid for an advanced backup system for RoB. Basically it'll backup the entire disk of both servers EVERY HOUR without any downtime. (I say no downtime, but its done super fast so there server is down for 0.01 seconds, but you wont feel it). The way it does this, is the first time it backups the whole server, then every hour it only backups the changes on top of what was originally backed up. So its not backing up the same data twice. Pretty cool and convenient huh? So if anything ever does go tits up we'll only have to backup from an hour ago. It is expensive... and as long as things are going as they're going I can keep this awesome system.

JANUARY COMPETITION
As i haven't had much time to decide on a decent January competition so I'll be running a "DarkAsh sig" competition. Basically, to get ready for the new forums I would like a new avatar and sig image. Includes:


100x100 avatar
400x60 signature

They don't have to be animated, but they can be. Must say "DarkAsh" on the sig. The winner will get their work on my forum posts. There can be only 1 winner, (which will be 50 plasma). Post your images here: http://reignofblood.net/forum.php?brd=gen&step=read&msg=245826

As for the theme its up to you! You can submit up to 5 versions each (make sure they are all on your one forum post). They must not include any copyrighted material/images. Good luck and thanks to all that enter! Ends 25th January 1010

Lets have a great 2010!

Ash

I've been wondering... Do you get paid for this Ash? Like, every time a person signs up do you get paid? What about page views? Because, if so, you must be rich. :)

I don't think it's worth trying for. The winners have won way before any contest is completed.

The comps are rigged anyway, so no I won't enter.

What benefit does it give me rigging contests?

Donovan said...

Nice Ash, sounds like a good choice. Not that it has happened in awhile but hopefully this means no more lost turns and such mishaps. Keep up the good work. Although I'm not the artist, always nice to see contests up for people to put their talents to use. Happy New Year thats finally started and looks to be a good one on RoB.

Actually The contest are not rigged people I won once and half of the people on this game hate me it is in your creativity and how much effort you put into the contest that's who wins so give it a try you never know you could win too seriously what could it hurt if you don't win oh well there will always be more of them.....

Thanks for the constant updates Ash, very much appreciated. It's nice to see a site owner taking the time to keep members informed.

Btw on the new survey, the last question should have had a "anything BUT coven wars" option. That's the one i'd have chosen. =p
