Crikey, it's been one problem after another:-
- My new router wouldn't port-forward on port 80, making hosting a website impossible.
- The wifi on my server gave up. I set up Network Sharing on my Windows PC so I could access the server, but that didn't allow for outbound internet access for the server. In order to get the code off it, I needed to turn it off and drag it across the house so I could plug it directly into the router.
- My cloud PC didn't have enough memory to compile the Stellar Forces server.
- My cloud computer doesn't have enough memory to run Stellar Forces, Sorcerers and Nanowars at the same time, so unfortunately Nanowars is no more.

The wifi on my server was up and down like a yoyo, so I've turned it off. I'm now in the process of moving all the code and data to the cloud which will take a few days (or rather, a few hours, but it will be a few days before I have time) and that should solve all the internet problems. It should be back up-and-running later in the week.

I've just had my Broadband upgraded. Unfortunately, the new Router (a Zyxel VMG3925-B10B) doesn't want to let me port-forward on port 80, because that's the port that the router's own control panel uses. There doesn't seem to be a way to change that which seems very strange, and inconvenient for anyone who wants to run a web server. Until I get it sorted, the SF server will be unavailable. Apologies! (on behalf of Zyxel).

I've currently got the bug for creating card games, and one that's been at the back of my mind for, well, a few years now, is a card game based on Stellar Forces. But is the demand there? Does anyone even read this blog?? Let me know, and also any ideas you might have for Stellar Forces - The Card Game!
