November 11, 2004 08:51 UTC - Firefox 1.0 released Get Firefox - Rediscover the web Hellou,

Since there's been nothing of interest happening in AO lately I decided to post news about something else to make this site look less dead ;). And the news is, Firefox 1.0 has been released! Around 88% of visitors still use Internet Explorer.. but you really should switch to Firefox, reasons for that are numerous, see the Firefox web page for details.


Update! (Dec/13): If you are running Firefox you can add as a search engine for it (along with Google and the others that are available by default). To install the - search plugin, click here.
September 01, 2004 11:19 UTC - Alien Invasion - Version 15.6.1 Alien Probe Hello!

I've just patched the website to the current Alien Invasion version, patch 15.6.1. There's quite a few new and updated items ;) I also updated the layout a little, it has some bugs and has only been tested with Mozilla Firefox so you might run into some bugs with Internet Explorer. I'll try to resolve these issues as soon as I can.

Update: The server is peaking at 1600 concurrent connections at the moment.. I set up another database server to handle some of the traffic and the response times should be at 5 seconds or less now. Oh, and thanks for all the donations I've received so far, maybe they'll allow me to replace some of the aging hardware on the primary box :D

Update: The XML dumps of 15.6.1 are now available.

Update: The servers opened some hours ago and the load on the webserver has eased a little, so everything is running on the main server again. Also I would like to note that the version I patched was indeed the 'real' 15.6.1, not a patch from the beta servers.
