    We're changing servers (might have to change again some time soon)
    so if you notice something wrong please report here.

    Known problems:
    - wiki down
    - friend codes database down
    - slower than usual
    - ?

    I've been getting some IPS Drive errors during the last few hours, but I'm sure you already know about that [​IMG]

    Yeah there was, and there will be more in the coming weeks for various reasons.

    The site is loading abnormally slow for me, though I assume this is only temporary.

    Yeah I noticed.
    To be completely clear with you we ordered a new server which runs on a SSD drive, supposedly a lot faster than regular HDDs...
    However this doesn't seem to be a viable solution for a large website!
    We'll switch again to a regular server configuration very soon.

    I can't get onto the site in general at presumably busy times.

    Perhaps your Cookies expired? If you delete your Cookies or if they expire, you'll be logged out of GBATemp.

    Win XP - Firefox
    Mac OS X - Firefox

    I've noticed that no matter what machine/browser I use, if I log in, after a short time the cookie will be "forgotten" and I won't be logged in GBAtemp anymore -- even if I have the 'Remember Me' option checked.

    It's been like that for a couple days now. I tested on three computers and got the same result of being logged out. Does GBAtemp have some bad cookies?

    I would just like to thank you, Costello, to making a great site even better.

    Is this supposed to be the server change to c|net?

    I don't know if you're being serious or not, but that was just an April Fool's joke.

    Same with DeMoN. The speed is fluctuating quite weirdly, i find myself closing the window and coming back, only to have the speed back to norm
