January 28, 2005: Testing Unit and Race ChangesIt's been a good week. We have a backup of the UC drive, and it seems to be working fine; we have restarted Alpha and it's ticking from the backup. And we believe that we have identified and cured the server's restarting problems (power fluctuations thanks to an interestingly wired switch).
The firewall is up.
We have updated the database with a lot of changes to racial and unit stats, based on player input on the forums. This weekend we'll run a "blitz" game (ticking every quarter-hour or so) with a dozen players. Next week we'll report on how that went and what it means in terms of progress toward letting YOU play.
