My Webspace is Gone
« on: June 01, 2008, 11:42:23 AM »

So, apparently, my web server exploded.  Like, knocked down three walls exploded.

Okay, not MINE, but the one that I've been using for a few years.  I got it back in my days with Operation CWAL, for whom I wrote several hundred short stories about horrible violence.  I guess that means "free webspace for life" somehow.

Aaaanyway, everything I had up there is gone, and I have no reason to expect it to come back.

So, here's what I'm getting at.

I'm pretty poor.  And I kinda got used to having webspace for stuff.  Not just for personal use, but for forum stuff.  I was planning on putting together a ton of stuff for the Worst Pyolympics Ever (which I will be starting up soon), aaaand now I kinda can't.

Sooo, if anybody's got any space anywhere that I can bitch off of, that'd be above and beyond exemplary and I'd abuse my admin powers to suck your dick somehow, but I don't expect anybody to do that.  So what I'm really asking is, what does everybody use for image hosting that I never found out about because I never needed it until now?

Thanks for your pity.  It feels so warm and soft.

That was your server that took down Shortpacked & Blank Label Comics?
www.shortpacked.com

Because if it is, the server is still there, it was the power room that ass ploded.

Schlock Mercenary says this:
On Saturday, May 31st, the EV1 H1 Datacenter in Houston suffered a transformer explosion which took out three walls and all power. Nobody was hurt, fortunately, but comics went offline.

Transformer = Server ???

The impression I got was that the hard drive was in tiny pieces on the floor.  That could just be my assumption.  If it comes back, great.

Fun Fact. I use the most bandwidth on pyoko.

.... By a lot. D: Unstable furries love me.

Anyways I always thought the contents of Kazz's homepage could of been summed up as a YTMND page. I assume it grew since like 20 years ago :(

The front page was a placeholder featuring a dancing godzilla.  The space was mainly used as storage for images and other files that I shared on the boards.  Tons of accumulation over the past five years, but honestly I don't mind losing it, because I don't remember what 95% of it was.


edit: it's back nm thx bai
