Server host outage

by on Apr.15, 2014, under News

Yup, we have had a major outage over the last few days. We’ve worked with Art of War Central for years, but they dropped off the planet a little while ago, unknown to us, apparently leaving bills unpaid. The company that actually owned the servers had suspended their account and it has taken a few days to unravel the mess left behind. But here we are – frustrated, but the websites are back up and running. And not before time – we’ve got plenty of news coming at you over the next week or so!
