Server Maint. Work

Sorry for the server being down for so long.
This was essentially something unexpected during a routine maintenance upgrade.
Between having a raid issue and upgrading the entire system, as most of you saw the effect, we were down for a few days until we could find the time to figure out exactly what was going on.
This has been fixed and everything should be back to normal, once again sorry for delay.


More Maint. continued

The server will be going down for about an hour or two this morning. This is not during peek hours so hopefully everyone won't be too pissed at me. I'll bring it back up shortly, thanks for the understanding.


SOLDIERX Now Hosting Public Blogs For All Site Members

I have an important announcement to make regarding the SX Member Pages. They have been changed to Blogs as you can probably see by looking at the navigation panel to the left of this post. Aside from a name change, the major change is that we are now hosting blogs for all registered members of this site. It seemed like there should be more benefits to membership other than just forums and the increased amount of available content. We are in a testing phase so as long as everything works well (minimal abuse), the public blogs will stay.

Firewall/Server maintenance

Just an FYI....
We are currently working on a new firewall project and will be taking the website/server offline for a couple of hours tomorrow morning.
We will be down from 0830am CST Feb. 8th until 1130am the same day.
This should not affect anything other than the site being down for a little while and no data will be lost.
We really shouldn't require this length of time but are accounting for the unexpected.


We Need Content! New Operating System Tutorial on the Horizon

My biggest complaint with the new so far is the lack of a substantial amount of content. I see that there are new areas and I really dig the new framework, but I still see there is little content for people to read and learn from. I am going to be compiling information as rapidly as I can and adding it to this site in the tutorials section. My first tutorial will be over Operating Systems and will be a focus on Operating Systems from a computer science standpoint. It's not going to be a "how do I copy files" but more of an understanding of how operating systems work.

Bandwidth Upgrade

The bandwidth upgrade has been completed as of 2am this morning, I would personally like to thank RaT and Blake for all their help and efforts making this go as smoothly/fast as possible.
There were some issues in the begining but luckily we were able to overcome them fairly quickly.
I've waited almost a day to make this post because we wanted to ensure that we all got some sleep afterwards and that everything was up and running successfully without error.
I hope everyone is able to notice things working a little bit faster now.
I'm looking forward to hearing what everyone thinks.
