I shall take the most minimal care of the unimposing Pashtuns.

Thanks edrim :*

That map looks like it would be a lot of fun to play.

I'm not sure about this rule change: "Upgrading a unit will cost it 2 veteran levels" - upgrading already is an expensive business. This would probably kill it completely. What is the reasoning behind it?

Kudos to akfaew, who maintained a thorough and current offsite backup. After firing up a new instance, it only took him the time it takes to upload the backup.

ifaesfu: under warranty, they usually just replace the disk and the data on your broken one is lost. That's the thing. And the guys who can rescue the data let you reward them handsomely (they also have to feature extreme know how, a clean room, a huge reserve of disk controllers/magnets/jtag/flash programming tools/reflow soldering workstation/...)

Ok, so remote hands says the disk is dead. I believe it could spin up again if the stars are aligned correctly, but it will take me at least a week to try that. And if it doesn't spin up with my magic hand waving, I will perhaps send it to a friendly forensics company that will most probably be able to restore the data - however, this will not before three weeks time, if at all (depends on how much of my code I haven't backed up/checked in and whether the hefty fee for professional data recovery is warranted).

Now I hope that akfaew has a recent savegame offsite, if this is so, we should be back up soon.

edit: I missed akfaews reply, that's pretty awesome that we have a recent backup! we should be able to make this happen shortly.

Why yes, it is a seagate, how did you know wink

I hope it recovers. I have several thousand loc for two projects on it that I didn't check in to git because of rewriting stuff ... and data rescue for this kind of calamity (changing the on-disk controller and re-programming it) is in the 700-1000EUR class.

Sorry for the downtime, an employee at my hoster rebooted the server in error and now, after a year of uptime, the disk seems to have had a panic attack or something and won't register with the bios ...

I have a feeling that this is a disk controller problem and not a disk problem (in which case I should be able to fix that today), but in case it is a disk problem, akfaew already told me that he has a backup, and if I can't get the hoster to restore the disk, we'll have a backup running on one of my other machines within a day or two (depends on how fast akfaews line is and when he has time).

We apologize for the inconvenience.

I would also support raising the turn limit to 250.

Uhm ... so how do I "confirm" for the game?
