Surviving a Server Crash (this is not a game!)

Categories: Site Stuff

As you may have noticed, Freegamesnews server was down for around 20 hours, due to a very bad crash disk after a server reboot (actually, the two drives mounted in Raid 1 on the server died and were replaced by new disks!). I feel very sorry for the lack of posts during the past 24 hours, but things went far beyond my control and I was just too busy working with my host to keep the server back on track.

Things are improving now, and should resume to normal soon. Please let me know if you spot anything wrong.

Thanks for your patience!

    I know this isn’t really a game, but according to the posts it is, so here’s a made-up walkthrough for this made-up game!

    Wow, that “fake-game” walkthrough was better than most of my “real-game” walkthroughs!
