Christmas update is live. Let us know what you think about the new design!

Interesting. I hope we would like new design more then old one.

How about redirect from /test/?

UI seems interesting, though it will require some getting used to it, with all the new icons etc.
Overall it seems to be targeted more on small screens. In UHD (or even 1440p) seems somewhat condensed, especially the Forum section. As is most part of the whole web these days it seems.

Anyway, it's in a good direction I think.

It is possible to define display rules for screens of various types. I guess most places don't bother. I expect that the current appearance will be refined over time.

My apologies for the outage that lasted from 2021-07-23 until 2021-07-28. A server upgrade malfunctioned and made it inaccessible, and the operator was either unavailable or had minimal time to investigate, plus it took several attempts to locate the cause. It really shouldn't have taken this long (the upgrade downtime was supposed to last 10 minutes...).

(Details: do-release-upgrade from ubuntu 18.04 to 20.04 caused the virtio network device to be renamed from enp2s1 to ens1 with no warning, which then resulted in ifup: Cannot find device "enp2s1", which then resulted in the server not having an ip address.)

Glad to have you back! I was worried, particularly since I'm not on Freenode anymore and I couldn't exactly remember the e-mail addresses for either of you two. I have those recorded now, at least.
theultramage on 14:50, 31. Jul, 2021
You can always fish that information out from the wayback machine. It visits us every now and then. I'm also glad I finally got it resolved. One more day and I was about to redirect the site to a second server with a placeholder message.

[placeholder post until change tracking services are up]

2023-02-16 Recovered website after host server failure. Unfortunately only an old off-site backup was available, and the entire system had to be reconfigured from scratch, which took a long time.

2023-02-16 Fixed an incompatibility with IPv6 addresses, which the site now supports.

2023-02-17 Fixed replays not being viewable due to a php incompatibility.

2023-02-19 Fixed broken links on webpage, updated link to irc channel.

2023-02-25 Corrected 'Emissary of the afterlife' failing to play due to a php incompatibility. Verified all other cards as well.

2023-04-24 Restored functionality for svn and trac development pages.

Restricted crawler access to svn and trac. Likely caused a memory exhaustion failure on the host, leading to a website outage. Adjusted settings to hopefully avoid a repeat.

It did repeat. Apologies for the downtime. Added much stricter checks and rate limiting to deal with the sudden huge volume of bot traffic.
theultramage on 11:11, 1. Jan, 2024
2023-12-31 Locked trac access due to heavy bot crawler activity still overloading the host. Added prevention against further crashes but had to do the abovementioned change because it also affects access to the main site.
