Up! | May 27, 02 | Posted by Sett
Alright kiddies, she's back up and
running full speed. Here's the message I got from 'The Hamster'
aka Jeremy our tech god:
"I apologize for the server
being down today. Something in the data center
flaked out, and the NetGS servers went down. Your server
is back up, with
totally re-worked configs. I did that during the down time
we had. Let me
know if there are anythings we need to hammer out from this
So, it didn't happen like we planned
it, but it happened none the less. Brand new configs. This
means that if you see anything abnormal you need to pay
a call to your local EFH forum and let us know what the
beef is. We've also got a supah sekrat undacuvah agent working
on a Flash intro for us. Ok, well it's not that scret. Discombobulator
is going to attempt to meet the demands of this site, and
we'll all bear witness to his successes and/or failures.
I've given him the idea of what I want for the site, and
hopefully he can deliever.. we shall see.
By the way.. anyone catch Star
Wars: Episode II? If you haven't yet, your on
your way to becoming a loser. Yoda owns you. I'll bet he

Well it looks as if the guys at NetGS
took us down for maintenance, which is just as well. Most
likely it's going to be a full-reinstall like we requested,
with from-scratch configs so there's no deviance from the
norm. By the way, don't be afraid to test out the maps we
have on the voteable list. Most folks like them so far,
but we need input from everyone on what to keep, what to
pull, what to snag for new ones.. yadda yadda. We also need
you guys to tell us what maps have bugs so we can either
get a fixed version or pull the map entirely after review.
On a lighter note, CSNation
have the results from the "1.3 V/S 1.4 Jumping"
poll as the promised, and are now asking for a second poll
to validate the results, since we've all had a month to
play around with that ludacris pause after jump (sorry,
I'm jaded). Basically 1.3 won the first round, and again
is winning the second round, so don't forget to go and vote.
When all is said and done, I do believe I remember a promise
from rizzuh that they will cover the issue if the responses
are good enough. As influential as CSN is within the entire
community, here's to hoping they will have some weight to
get VALVe to change it back. If not, I, like the rest of
you, will adapt and overcome (as most of you have already,
myself included) for the long haul.
Expect a post from either myself
or Yobobobolubage as soon as the server is back online.
Overhaul! | May 25, 02 | Posted by Sett
Well, as some of you have noticed
the server has been performing less then optimal for the
last week or so. We've noticed it too, and that's why we
got on the horn with NetGS guys. Basically we're going to
go for a full re-install of all software, and brand new
configs done fat-finger. So if you should see that the server
is down for any length of time, that's probably what's going
And again, I'm gonna show some EFH
love to Jeremy, who some of you know as 'The Hamster' (he
runs on the wheel that runs the mapchanger, and moonlights
as our techie). The dude works at home sometimes fixing
our stuff, if he doesn't get to it at work. That's dedication
to your people.
Now if we can just get everyone the
same ping as liqshot and elf.. I think we'd be straight.
On a lighter note, if you have something that you want to
see introduced to the site, let us know. Got some CS artwork
that you want displayed? Got a screenshot that's mad silly
and you want to submit it for our pic
of the week? Hit us up.
You guys drive the train, and point it in the direction
you want the server and site to go.
Blasted on CSNation! | May 21, 02 | Posted by Sett
If you didn't see it, we got hit
Now, ahem, correct me if I'm wrong.. but isn't that.. completely
bad ass? Check it out. CSN lookin out for the little guy.
We also seem to be getting some static
on their response posts, so I had to step in and say something
else. Basically, some are jealous that we got blasted by
CSN, and some just want to cause trouble and defame anyone
they can. Just remember, there are very few Hawaiian servers
that run high-capacity and run fast, and aren't lan-cafe's.
We're just trying to stand up there with a handful of others,
here to give you dynamic gameplay.
In commemoration of this completely
wicked event, we've changed the mapcycle. Ok, not really,
we didn't change it just for CSN, but there was a bug in
the Rats3 map that we were running, so we took it off the
rotation. In it's stead, we put awp_snowfun,
which seems to be a hit anyways.
Speaking of hits, cs_mario_b2
seems to have quite a large fan base. Seems we qued a sense
of nastalgia in you guys.. just to add to the flavor, I
went and added an extra perk to my game. I added the goomba
skin for the chicken, so now cs_mario_b2 is complete for
me! Ya, so now all my chickens are goombas, but hey.. it's
a new game when your shooting goombas instead of helpless
chickens.. I always got killed by those flying goombas..
Make sure you regulars check out
the new forums.
We need feedback to give you guy what you want (I know,
I know.. stats are coming I swear!!!). Yobobobo's been
doing some crazy things with the colors, and it's looking
pretty good. Got some goodies from CS Net we're trying out..
mixed with some Yobolubage style. As always, we're the ever-evolving
EFH, so check us out for changes everyonce in a while.
