Scheduled Maintenance

A King’s Castle is expanding!

We will be switching to new servers tonight, and will be down for a few hours starting at 12:00 AM EDT to make the move. Once that is complete, things should be faster and more responsive.

Thank you to all our readers who have made this move necessary!

UPDATE: We have successfully changed servers and migrated everything over. Thanks for your patience.

    Movin’ on up!

    (Hopefully not to the West Side.) 🙂

    • Nope. Pure vertical. Got some big plans for the future of this site.

        theres the name for your new server- Weezie 1

        • We should name all the servers after rappers. “Yes I need a critical update on 2Pac and Biggie has reached full capacity”

      YES!!!
      I had one of them. The Old Man said “computers are the future, boy!” but I showed him – I used that shit for ‘Choplifter’ and little else….

        I liked Karateka.

        amazing how cheap these things were compared to apple. then the 90s came along, and peeps were financing $2,000 desktop packages- cost more than my first car

        • bem

          right?
          I nearly passed out when I learned my broke-ass dad dropped like 5 bills for that C64…
          My first FOUR cars didnt add up to $2000…..

          • cheeseburgercheeseburger

            LOL
            look at this! apple was a bargain! at least they built their stuff here in the 80s

            that replaced THIS beast – https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b765af5b81dd2461b0934ae8f0f8bb986cbe713d320367d5a210992f744135bf.jpg
            I remember wheeling an AV cart with one of these on it down a stairwell….I almost got a hernia laughing so hard.

          • cheeseburgercheeseburger

            it had a handle like a briefcase, right?

          • bem

            I dont remember – that whole day was a little……foggy.
            Got some serious air under that cart!

          • L’UltimoConservatore

            Oh man, I remember those. Of course, they were dead ancient when I got to play around with them. Some old stuff at the university. Fun times!

            The few that I played with where I think a few versions after that one. They had their own built-in crap screens. 🙂

          • bem

            ….and that was a few months salary back then!

          • cheeseburgercheeseburger

            thank god the folks back at the home office had the wisdom to give everybody credit cards back in the 80s…my parents didnt even have one until the late 80s

          • bem

            wisdom indeed….with like 1500% interest!

          • Art

            Whoa, Jobs got the company him and Gates stole the ‘desktop’ concept from to sell his shit, far out…

        • Consolation_of_Philosophy

          I am amazed that I remember what Karateka was…

          • bem

            I’m disappoint that I cant….

          • cheeseburgercheeseburger

            it was like double dragon, except there was one guy not two, and he wore a karate outfit and was orange.

          • bem

            oh I see. I hated those fighting games. I mean, I could go outside and get my ass kicked in real life if I wanted. I wanted to drive a F-15!

    • What are you talking about? That’s what we’re upgrading to!

  • Had to get new servers because of the rock star guest columnists that will start being published

  • CEO of Kratom
  • Murdoc34

    Almost missed this one. Not accustomed to having to scroll down slightly on the main page to see what I’ve missed. One refresh a day usually does the trick.

    Anyway, awesome! I’m pleased to be a part of the reason you need to replace your servers.

    I’d be interested in seeing some of those fancy stat graphs showing the ramp up in traffic, and whatever other interesting visitor statistics you are willing to share.
