Updated Info on Server

I’ve got some good news at least. First, I’ll start off by saying that the HDD is indeed failing. I was informed that it had about 4% health remaining. Here is the actual good news.

When I had the drive swapped out, this also updated the OS and we’re starting fresh on that. The data is still intact on the old drive, and copying data as we speak. (metaphorically speaking) Configuration files and such appear to be in good condition and are not lost, so we’ll be able to get it back up and running soon enough. Read more

Luna and E-D|Mashiro

I hate it when stuff like this happen. But I guess that’s the nature of hard drives apparently…

Anyway, Luna, the alternate server to connect to in case LoliFox ever went down, is.. well, down. How long is out of my control at this point because the hard drive that crashed was the OS drive. This also had another casualty as well, E-D|Mashiro. Due to that, both services are offline and may not return for a few days until things can be sorted. Mashiro will be the first to re-appear, Luna will be second as I need to reconfigure everything.

I believe the most important data may be intact, but config files appear to have been lost. I won’t know this until the next day or two, assuming anything can be saved. I’ll keep updated on this as I’m able.

Updated Theme

It was a long time coming, but I updated the theme, with a few more tweaks coming later on. Most of you won’t see much on the outside as most of it was in the admin side of things. I have some ideas that I think would be good, just don’t have time right now to get to them. Expect more updates on the later on.

OMG Donations!

Holy crap on a stick, there’s a donation page?!?!?!?!

Matter of fact, yeah. Its mainly for hosting my bot which I use for other things too. As some of you know, I run an XDCC bot for Exiled-Destiny, which I encode for and am staff for. Been that way for roughly a couple years now actually, with the bot hosting beginning at the year. Read more

Glitch With Luna

Ok, so I had forgotten that when the firewall was installed on the server, I totally forgot the fact that it would block the ports used for the IRC server, so.. that kinda kicks it out, sorta.. for connecting to it.

Soon as I get a little bit of info, I can add the necessary ports in and get it back to a connectable state. My fault for forgetting such important things.. but oh well, I’m only human… and a busy one at that.

[edit | May 8th]
Got a friend to add the necessary ports, so Luna is connectable again. Sorry for the inconvenience. At least LoliFox was still available just in case.

Big FAQ Update

I’ve done some major changes to the FAQ to better reflect how the ShadowHime Network is structured. With the introduction of two particular bots, E-D|Flandre and E-D|Remilia, two bots with anime on them from Exiled-Destiny, I’ve went ahead and allowed, to some extent, XDCC bots on the network. Bots and fservers do still have to get some approval from a staff member, but we’re more laxed about it now than what I originally had in the FAQ. I’ll give the relevant block that was changed in a big way.
