Stellar Forces is back up!

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.
Despite all that,  Stellar Forces is now back up and running, and now that it's in the cloud, it should stay that way.  The cloud never fails....?

Stellar Forces is currently Down

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.
