    Hi everyone,
    We have been down for the past 24 hours due to a hardware default on our server. This is caused by a known kernel issue that crashes the server and its remote control hardware (making it impossible to reboot without a physical intervention). The issue occurs when our uptime is too long... oh, the irony! Hey server, you might want to reboot every now and then...
    I will remove this message from the homepage in the next couple of hours.
    Sorry about the inconvenience caused! It's good to be back!
    Costello

    Temp downtime for the temp?

    I must admit I was worried for a while. Afterwards, I just assumed that the Wii U, 3DS and PS Vita had all been fully hacked and the down time was caused by a massive surge of users flocking to the site to download the hacks. Imagine my disappointment when nothing of interest actually happened yesterday. :tpi:

    Glad you're back. I know a bit about servers and it sounds like you need some better remote control hardware. You can get kit that allows you to remotely control and view the screen of a server, even when it's switched off, and see all the BIOS screens etc. Such hardware should be completely immune from any software problems.

    I am glad it was a simple thing such as that and not a compromise in security.
