Server crashed again. Unfortunately because of an ongoing problem that has affected the server for months, the backups stopped running. This made it to where I had to restore it far further than normal. All I can really say is I apologize for this.
I have informed Brian that I need to distance myself from administrating the site. When I originally took over it was because the previous guy had to leave the country and gave rather short notice on needing to find another solution. I picked up where he left off, and then moved it to a server that was hosted somewhere where I have had good luck with customer service. Then about 6 months ago I got a new job and moved out of my parents house to my own place. This caused not only a lot of stress but also a lack of the time I used to have to dedicate to working on the site. Also, originally I had a lot more disposable income (was paying about 200 in rent to my parents, now paying 600 + utiltiies which comes out to about another 200-300 depending). Tho I got a raise in the new job, it doesn't quite offset that difference at all. Luckily many people here have stepped up and donating some money to help out on the server costs (which I appreciate much).
That all being said, I feel that I can't dedicate the time and love that the server needs. Brian, Kelly and Rook (among many others) work very hard and for Brian, Rook and Kelly this is pretty much what they do for work (certainly would be completely if that was possible at this point, and its getting there). However I don't have that same kind of dedication nor time.
I felt it necessarily to explain some of this so others can hopefully see a little bit where I am coming from. This all being said, again I apoligize for todays issues. Also, Brian and I will be looking for people to take over some of the backend tasks (like checking to make sure the backups run, optimizing mysql tables and what not). If you have experience in mysql and/or linux (especially command line stuff) please let Brian or I know. As always you can find me on skype as gizmoiscariot or you can email me at .
