That's a hella lot of people in less than a day. Hope the server likes it.

Henceforth this time shall be known as the Dark Age of Portent, and with the arrival of the new server the time shall be deemed the great purging, entering into the Golden Age of Portent.

Or, so I hope. At least we don't have all those random unused accounts any more :D

I would imagine it will slow down rather quickly and become slow and steady.

Probably... Let's see how much the new servers can take :p

All I can say is...

Nick's basement & Giant hamster wheel.

Make the connection. :D


Seriously iirc it's an old 800mhz machine Nick found somewhere...

It was said Nick built it from spare parts (okay the spare parts is a rumour by me), and he sleeps curled around it and strokes it all day, so it doesn't get any funny ideas...

But isnt there a good chance of a new server crash if the members keep pouring in?

Since portent have been down for a while people has alot they want to share :D

Not only will many return, but they will also experience 'young puppy' syndrome, whereby they start pissing recklessly in any new rooms.

I'm sure the parallel to net posting doesn't need to be underlined.

Yep.

*pisses*

Seriously, I miss a lot of good posters, so I hope for the return of many, many more in the next few days. As long as we, for the time being, keep up the restricion of which forums that are activated, let's hope the server doesn't crash again. I expect people are spreading the word at all the other websistes they have frequented the last few weeks.

Later,

Good to see everyone is back! Ah deary me, those were dark days in the #portent irc room. That NaT is a dirty chap, always humping my leg.

Anyhoo, to celebrate this new begining, I put the question to you chaps -

Is the warhammer world part of the 40k universe? ;)


Why in my day, that sort of question got well over 100 replies! You young whipper snappers! :D


Good to be back!!

This increase in numbers is worrying me a tad.

Ive gotta say Im pretty optimistic, but v1 went under for a reason, so we're gonna have to try very hard to keep this one from the same fate...

Should be simple enough. With the restart there won't be as many members for a good long while.

Last night approx. 9pm (CST) Portent went into slow, slows, slower. Then AOL claimed it wasn't responding anymore. :confused: Who knows, it was 6hours later in the UK. It could have been world wide people on it??

When It's up, I'll hope to catch it before another attack of the slows. I guess it's working well now, because this is still my wife's PC playtime of day. Hey, it was her idea to get off and let me on.

durring the time it went down last night to about right now I found this little 'Refugee site' as well:

http://portent.proboards31.com/index.cgi

It's a proboard portent clone ran by Fugazi, to Mourn portents demise and fill the Void. Better than the liferaft imo, but nothing quite like being back here.

Check it out when you have time, and if this place falls again, from time to time, we can meet up again there.

- Cheers
