I don't use it but it's there, the latest version. Usually I rock firefox but I'm getting the same blank screen lately. Sometimes it works.

It might be wise to start considering a new host. Donations have brought in $126 from which we have expended $68 for two years of hosting. We have about 6 months until the end of the period we have paid for, so it might be wise to change hosts before that time arrives.

Does anybody know web hosting providers that provide cheap webhosting for a site as niche as UnrealSP? We have received about 13 million hits in the entire past year. The host servers should be able to handle the relatively tiny load UnrealSP puts on them.

I have heard very good things about BlueHost from people who know what they're doing (dedicated hosting I think, shared pretty much sucks balls as we have seen), but don't know how much it would cost or if it would be worth it.

Bluehost is a well known provider, but can be slow at times. But I dont know how much this forum would need in processor speed, so.. it may be worth it. (and yes, I'm talking about dedicated hosting)

A newsletter I've received from Arvixe states the following:
Hello,

We have started migrating customers on your server Dove including yourself to a new, better, stronger server Newt. We are proud to offer this top of the line, industry leading, configuration to the long-time clients on the Dove server. Benefits of the move include:

1) The new server features a RAID SSD array for MySQL and OS partitions. This allows for the fastest possible access to your databases, files, and more.

2) Redundant 10 Gig hookups allowing for the least amount of network disruption possible in case of attacks or abuse.

3) The new server has three times the amount of ram than the older server. This would allow further caching of IO which is generally the bottle neck on shared hosting services.

We look forward to helping you out in making the move as painless as possible. Please remember we are doing this for the overall betterment of services and the improved network and performance of your hosting account.

Maybe our pain will be finally over!

It's much better, I've not had a single general error at all yet.

Damn, the forums have gone all slow again :(
Is that just a one off or is it going to continue?

Must just be a connection problem then: I can't get Google at all and lots of other sites are pretty slow.

I take it I'm not the only one who has found the site down a ton over the last few days?
