    ÂGBAtemp is back online

    ÂOn our real host, the one we pay for



    After several days of hosting on our personal computer, GBAtemp is now back to Powwebs servers. We have fixed the PHP scripts and hopefully everything will be OK now!

    And soon, a new surprise for your GBAtempers! A nice portal hack that you will surely appreciate.
    See you on GBAtemp!


    Edit: the little new portal hack is now enabled. Only 10 of the latest posts are now displayed but a new smart box appears below, listing the last five GBA releases (release list to be updated soon). Soon this should also include NDS releases.

    sorry about that, hehe
    I had to host the website on my computer, in france, with my DSL2+ connection.
    It was very constraining, because the hosting used a lot of bandwidth, cpu and hdd load... and for several nights I've had to sleep with my noisy computer on [​IMG] its near my bed...

    Yes, of course, Shaun will update the release list as soon as he gets online, I'm confident about that [​IMG]
    and gOnline works back like a charm!

    actually we had too many mysql_connect instructions...
    some 'while' loops contained such instructions which would result in 200 connections opening/closing per second... (2 connections per news item, 100 users browsing, 5 news items to display...)

    So after all of our name-calling at Powweb, it was OUR fault? Embarrassing!

    Good to be back though -> and Costello, that's one MEAN internet connection you've got there -> we'd never be given that kind of upstream/downstream capability at home here. Wow!

    well how could we know it was our fault?
    It has been working fine for the last 6 months and suddenly they closed our website and sent an email afterwards. Also a lot of people had problems with powweb at that time... and we also had that "bandwidth exceeded" error message... nothing to do with SQL connections...

    About my DSL2+ connection well it's a 110 kbyte/s upload speed and 1200 kbyte/s download... nice [​IMG]
