News Reel

The news roll has several advertisements with links that are no longer functional.

References to u13.net, tms.jrgp.org, and http://realsold.org/ are sadly no longer relevant.

For u13, you can probably just remove the mention of it and leave G&S, which still seems to be functioning.

Actually http://tms.jrgp.org is quite relevant as my mapping site still gets maps every few weeks. It seems down now because FliesLikeABrick's server that hosts it, Lion (which incidentally also hosts http://u13.net), seems unreachable/overloaded/hung but that should be resolved in a few moments (I just called him and he's looking into it now). It's back online. I feel kind of bad about removing U13 since FliesLikeABrick will still host servers for people if they message him directly. As for G&S, that link was added a few months ago as the service is still very new.

I'm going to look into the other ones though.

If at the very least I've gotten a few sites back up, then I am happy.

u13.net seems to be having a lot of database issues, and unless I am mistaken the server status results are incorrect. I miss the resource it used to be. :/

You're right. The resources it pulled from and the servers it hosted went inactive a long time ago. Technically speaking, in 2009 FLAB kinda left me in control of the site with the opportunity to revamp it and make it good again, although at that point the userbase was gone, and I never quite finished the bugfree rewrite: http://u13.net/revamp/

If demand pulls for it, I can bring its servers back online and get it into a somewhat lively state again, at least to the extent of having servers that are always online and stats that update automatically.

The revamp looks very sexy. I nostalgia'd in my pants.
