Whew -- sorry about the outage! My last webhost shut Craftster down for using too many resources (which is some limit that they don't even define). I thought for sure they'd warn me first and let me put up a message about it ... but no dice. So now I've moved Craftster's to it's own swanky Virtual Private Server. Post here if you see any problems or want to comment on whether it seems slower, faster, etc.

I was so thrilled to see it's already back -- I'm on cable so it was always fast, but it actually does seem to be even faster than before.  Woo woo!

It does seem to be faster.  Never thought I had an addiction problem, however when I couldn't sign on I felt like I was going to have withdrawals for sure. Smiley Sooo glad to be back on.

Wow! It's a little after 3:00 am...and it occurred to me that Leah said that we might be back on Monday....

With Craftsters down...I actually got other things accomplished besides art...I organized 2 bookshelves...and entertainment unit...a bedroom hallway cabinet....decided not to attempt the closet yet, considering when I threw a few things in there...it threw a few things back at me.

P.s. I am on dial-up...and the site loads much quicker now than before.

It definately seems faster to me on my ol 'fashioned standard dialup modem!

Uh-oh. I just got the dreaded "page cannot be found" page.... (which is in itself a "page" -- how's that for an oxymoron!)  Wink

I've gotten the "page cannot be found" page a couple of times today, too.  But it has gone away on a reload every time - so I don't know if this is better or worse than before....
anyway, *so* glad to have craftster back!

Works for me great.. Just a suggestion though.. I hate how the news section at the top blinks Sad I can never read it fast enough and when I'm done it always shifts the page up and down.

Okay, I'm a web designer, too, so excuse me if I'm being picky Cheesy

I'm glad that everything is back up and running, and I like the re-organization that I've seen, too.  the only problem that I've had so far is that the clock was showing the wrong time. this isn't a big deal, except that when I tried to make the correct time changes and update them in my profile I was told that my avatar was too large, which was never a problem before. anyway, I just made a new avatar... hope you all like it as much as I do!

Your new avatar is cute Wink
I have the exact same problem, I used to be on -3 but now I'm on about +6 I think. But I get the message that my avatar is too big so I can't change the time...

Edit: well...I changed the size, and it turned out my time is now + 18 and used to be - 3... really strange

I'm working on a bunch of suggested improvements to Craftster. I think I just made it so the news blurb doesn't flash anymore. Let me know if you see any problems!

I had a couple of problems accessing this wonerful site last night (bout 7 - 10 pm UK time).

It has happened to me once before too (since the time it went down completely) I manage to get to the index page (with the centre button) but then when I click through I get 'page can not be displayed'  Angry

Is it only me that this is happening too  Huh
