Hey folks,

I just wanted to apologize again for the server being down the other day. Thank you for all your patience while I got it back up and running again. Seems like the return of MO:UL was just too much for the little sucker to handle, and it gave up the will to live. :lol: What happened was that the CPU actually burned itself out. Literally. It smelled to high heaven in here, and there is a tiny hole in the processor where the metal burned and melted. Eeks. I'm not sure if the cooling fan died or if something else happened, but in the end, I had to replace the Motherboard, the CPU, and the memory. The motherboard that was being used prior was so old that I had to upgrade the memory because they don't make motherboards that use that old stuff any longer. Hehe!

On the bright side, the server is smoking fast now. It was booting the OS before my monitor even kicked in with signal. :8 However... the not-so-good news is that it cost $160. Ouch. All things considered, that's pretty cheap, but its still an expense I was not budgeting for. Several of you have offered to pitch in to help, and I dearly appreciate that. I would normally not take you up on it, but this time I will humbly ask for help... so if you are able and willing, please do donate, but don't feel obligated. I've posted a PayPal link on the main website and all the funds will go toward the "medical expenses" for our dear GoMa server.

Thank you all. Each of you is truly wonderful and I am so glad to call you fellow Maintainers!!!

*hugs*
-Nyn

Gotcha, Nyn. Glad to help, and I hope this one will hang in there.

It's a good thing nothing burst into flame, but it sounds bad enough as it was.

Trust me, if I could donate, I would. But unfortunately, I don't have a PayPal, much less a credit card. So, guess I'll need to be donating... Uhh... My support... Yeah, sorry. Wish I could give more (heh heh heh. Completely intentional*.).

Thanks Nyn!
