14. Re: Alt text on logo Apr 2, 2002, 12:29  Frans 
 
I think, in the light of the downtime, the Alt text should say "I find your lack of News disturbing".
Actually, that one's pretty funny too, but we really don't want to show that all week long, while we're updating again.

And Hazard, the Rave_n_ typo was fixed a while ago, perhaps you have the pop-up cached?

Sounds like you don't have JavaScript enabled, it's needed for the pop-up window to appear that has the real download link. Uhm, well, a Gigex link anyway, which produces a pop-up of its own.

I guess the direct download link is more convenient then: http://gigex1.com/Q0045300003/

Oops, I prepared this logo last week but couldn't think of an ALT text immediately so I put it aside, and then forgot it still needed to be updated. Excellent suggestion, mind if I borrow that?

Uhm, duh? We were down since Thursday evening, in case you hadn't noticed. The retail patch was released on Friday so we caught up to that news, but the beta patch is new and doesn't seem to have been picked up by other news sites yet.

Hang on guys, we've queued up a ton of stories but there's a database problem so they don't appear on the frontpage right now. Furn is looking into it...

I believe this part in the diary pertains to the delivery of the trailer to publisher Fishtank Interactive. When it'll be released is up to them.

It wasn't just you, unfortunately Apache died at 13:44 EST, and I was out all afternoon so I didn't get to restart it until 18:29. Sorry about the outage.

The question is, was mine or indiv's post that clued Blue to fix it? Probably neither.
Precisely, because Blue wasn't even around to cause that little mishap, or fix it.

Normally I check the frontpage a minute or two after posting a new story, but I was distracted for a while longer, that's why it attracted so much attention. Apparently.

Any official website or screenshots for that carnivores game?
Sunstorm mentioned there's no official site for it, but some screenshots were recently posted at various sites, check our news archive.

5. Re: IM really confused. Mar 7, 2002, 08:36  Frans 
 
I mislabeled the day because:
a) It was already Thursday in the Netherlands.
b) My cable modem was down all evening and working over my old 28k8 modem threw me off.
c) I just didn't think.
d) All of the above.

No link to the developer?
I'm not aware of a developer site, here is the publisher's product page:

31. Re: .plan files Feb 28, 2002, 00:19  Frans 
 
Define "crazy .plan updates"? The tracker is generally well-behaved given sufficient disk space, but it will produce an occasional fluke update if the pertaining person eg. cleans out his .plan (that's still an update to the tracker but there's nothing new to read), or if the company's finger server has a hiccup (which I initially assumed was the case today, as I couldn't manually finger one or two servers). It doesn't happen frequently in my experience though, most updates can be explained from the changes a tracked person makes (even though they aren't always obvious when you can just see the new 'version' of the .plan).

looks like id and ritual are having problems now too
Well, those actually made a little lightbulb go off over my head and quickly lead to the cause and solution of this problem: the disk on which the tracker runs was full All cleaned up now, sorry about the mess.
