Servers Down (Temporarily)

Post by sinewav » Sat Jun 26, 2010 5:00 am

:P Hello to the 5 people who frequent AoT servers.

I had to shut them down temporarily due to financial troubles. And because server hosting is so cheap, you can trust that I'm in a serious jam right now. Here is a quick breakdown of what's been going on...

I haven't worked a steady job in a while and this depleted my savings. With no money for rent last month, I got evicted from my apartment and had to move into my friend's basement to save money. Then, the day after I moved in, there was a big storm and the basement flooded, making it unlivable. I was lucky; most of my stuff survived the flood and I was able to move it into another friend's garage for temporary storage. But now I don't have anywhere to live until I get a job and save money for a new apartment...noes!

Be assured as soon as I get back on my feet financially, I'll put the servers back up. The good news is, I won't waste my summer playing games on the Internet. I'll be spending it with friends (as I convince them to buy me food and let me sleep on their couches, haha!)

I'm going to use this thread to feel sorry for myself, ha!

:x Goddamn I miss AoT.

So, after looking for full-time, permanent work all year I finally landed a job. But as it turns out, it was temporary too. The good news is, I got a little more money in my pocket and I have a few odd jobs lined up next week.

I was staying in my friend's disgusting basement, but apparently my presence in the house was affecting his sex life, so I got the boot. Now I'm back to living in my van and sleeping/showering at people's houses when I can. But if I can't get some steady income and a place to live before the cold weather comes, I'm probably going to head south for the winter, literally. Probably Texas or Southern California. It's hard to sleep in a van when it gets below 10 degrees centigrade.

:) Someone please play the world's smallest violin for me.

I feel for ya, dude. I've been there before, and it's NOT a fun place to be. But I'm sure you'll get things straightened out. Just takes time.

Good luck, man!

I knew you would know that I would know what that link was before I even clicked it. The question is, is your van down by the river?

I was thinking you could PM me a config for AoT and I could stick it in Bebop's var to /include sometimes, but then I realised you tweaked a lot with the AI and so forth as well. Same goes for 'Classic Arcade' too, doesn't it? Hrm....
