If you're reading this message on the website (not via email), you're on the new, NEW server. Will probably take a few hours before most people start seeing it.

Default New server issues

Okay, I saw no message when I came to the site so I logged on. I was logged off in the middle of a game and now I'm seeing the message about going to a new server shortly, again. Even though I logged backed on I can't find the puzzle I was solving when I was kicked off. The tequila offer still stands and there is also some gin, rum and triple sec.

This can happen if your computer is still caching old DNS data - a few things that might help:

- rebooting your computer
- clearing your browser's cache
- manually flushing your local dns
- try using a different browser

..... but in the main, this sort of thing will resolve itself after a few hours. Unfortunately there's nothing I can do on my end to alleviate it. Sorry about that.

Angry Server issues and warnings

Okay, I was logged off for an hour or so and logged back on about a half hour ago. I was playing on the old server then lost my puzzle and I was on the new server. It seems I've lost somewhere between 30 and 35000 total points. I happened to write down my points earlier today. Will this correct itself or am I stuck.

Hi damsel22 -

Unfortunately most everyone's lost some points in the transfer, there's no way to avoid it, at least without shutting down the entire site during the 3-4 days it took to migrate everything over.

But now that the new box is up there should be no further problems.

I lost most of the puzzles I played yesterday, too. I had kind of figured there was a 50-50 chance of that happening. Whatever. I do love the points and contests, but I also love to learn about new quotes and authors. That's why I've been playing logged-out all week. Thanks for the site, Stephen.
