During the maintenance our Dallas machine got stuck in an infinite rebooting loop. Without actually being at the server I'm not able to diagnose the problems. For now I'm moving those servers back to the old host in Quebec. The servers will probably be down for a few more days because without the harddrives of the Dallas server I'll have to manually read every single file.
As many of you know for the last few years it seems like Swoobles has been moving locations a lot. This has mainly been due to us trying to find a host that can actually take a good beating from a DDoS attack. We started out colocating in Chicago, then renting from two different hosts in Dallas, and finally renting in Quebec as a last resort. The current Quebec location is a great host and they can certainly stand up to DDoS attacks compared to the previous hosts, but there is a major problem being in Quebec.. our west coast players have horrible latency. I knew this was a problem before moving to Quebec but we had no choice.
