Chess server downtime on Friday

33 posts in this topic

Unfortunately looks like the "Red Hot Pawn" site will be down for up to 24 hours starting tomorrow evening, the following message was issued on their site:

Due to some recent technical issues, a site outage will be occurring on Friday (20:30 GMT) for up to 24 hours. During this time you will not be able to access this site.

As a result, game timeouts will be suspended for the duration of the entire weekend.

Hope that doesn't mess up the UM chess matches too much.

As long as the chess matches stay there and don't get wiped out, i'm okay waiting 24 hours to continue.

The matches won't get wiped out, so it should be ok.

It's 3 AM Saturday morning here. Is the site still down, anyone know? Before I was getting the site, but getting a message that it was down, but now all I can get is a "cannot find server" page. hmm.gif

Oh, well. I can claim that I lasted for days in the two practice games I'm playing anyway. tongue.gif

2.28 AM - Maybe not long to wait, I'm now getting this 'We will be live again shortly. Thank you for your continued patience.' as opposed to 'The page cannot be displayed'

Well, the fact that they took the time to make something to say they'll be back soon, probably suggests we have a long wait in store. Otherwise, why bother right?

Sure, on PHP, Practice or Official?

Although I'm currently playing 6 people, I think thats the max amount of matches you can play, so you may have to wait until I finish one.

Practise might be good for a start since I haven't played in many years. blink.gif

Whenever you are finished let me know. Chess is after all a game of patience. original.gif
