General Chat / Shameless Plug

OK, so some of you may know that I'm a game dev student (or have been for a couple years now).  So a few friends of mine have graduated and went on to create an indie team and realize their dreams.  While in school they made a wildly popular survival racing game Nitronic Rush.  Their game went on to become probably the most successful student game in history.

Well, long story short, they're attempting to get the funds together to create its "spiritual successor" called Distance.  The primary reason here is that our school actually owns Nitronic Rush, so they can't really do anything more with it and stay afloat (we game devs need to eat, after all).  Due to this, they have turned to kickstarter to raise funding for Distance.  I'm simply trying to help spread the word.

There's only 3 days left on their kickstarter.  Having played the hell out of Nitronic Rush, I can ensure the game was a blast, and Distance has a ton of promise.  I urge anyone into these sorts of games to check it out, maybe throw a small donation their way, and help spread the word.  They're almost at their mark, but lets push them well over it!!

The reason it hasn't been seen in the web is because doing it is a bit more intensive than simply rendering a web page.  It required technology that the web has, until recently, been sorely lacking in "browser power wise".  But now that we have hardware accelerated graphics, JITed JS code, and things like WebGL, this has become a possibility now.

Yeah, we've got things nailed down around here.  So unless your server blows up it's all good.  :)

For my steam account, please ask over messages here, as I kept getting a bunch of invites from people who I can't identify and aren't bothering to list themselves.
This particular tutorial is somewhat dated now.  I'd suggest using a program such as Putty if you need SSH shell access or WinSCP over SFTP or SCP if you just need to transfer files.  Though I haven't got time to put together a tutorial for either of those at the moment, they are pretty straight forward.

As for your issue, look for your keep alive settings.  It's possible that they're causing your issue if you have a stable internet connection.

APC is a bad idea for a shared host anyhow. :)

It's an mmo server Xeph.  Consider this:  A private RO server (which is a relatively simplistic game) with approximately 80-100 players online will chew up around 800GB of bandwidth per month.  I've only ever seen minecraft, as I refuse to play another mmo while in school.  But from what I've seen, it looks like a relatively simplistic game.  Seems to have some changeable world stuff, a few enemies here and there, and very few actual things the player can do (mostly it's the same repetitive thing over and over).  It's also a bit faster paced than something like RO, meaning that it's probably sending/receiving data, or expecting to send/receive data at a faster rate (being this is a first-person game it'd likely use UDP).  Because of that, as well as the need to send all that world changing data to any nearby players who can observe it, it'd probably be at least 250GB+ / month for around 12 players.

Right, something like this is a program error, not a service error.  There's something wrong with the copy of WinSCP you have.
Any spammer who manages to get by that we'll hit with a stick of banning +5! :)

Did you want to meet up for a drink or something while here in the Seattle area?
Glad you talked about that, I now have some things to frack with them if I ever go.  It'd almost be worth it to video cam it on my cell and YouTube it later on once back in the U.S.  Especially if you could keep an eye out and get names of officers.  :P

After hearing an experience from a friend of mine who went to Canada and ended up in a whole lot of legal trouble over absolutely nothing (as in, both their prosecution and defense can't even classify it but are still proceeding with shit), I think I'd just plain avoid that place.  >.>;

He's using a self-signed certificate, which just means he didn't pay out the ass for a real one (cheapest ones are at godaddy though).  If you really want him to use a trusted cert, he probably could get one, but they aren't cheap.  People would need to donate up to around $100+/yr more if it's outside his budget. :P

You know you're a nerd when you already know that it isn't really possible without a micro-soldering kit and a lot of time and patience (unless it's a large loose solder joint, then maybe). :P
