Domain Changes Complete
Alright, our nameservers have been moved successfully and everything appears to be work from our end. To make sure things update for you, please clear your browsers DNS cache. We also fixed the Song Updater (oops!)
To do this on Chrome (which we recommend), go to chrome://net-internals/#dns and click on the “Clear host cache” button.
Skaianet Domain Changes
We are currently in the process of changing Nameservers for our domain(s). We’re moving to DigitialOean’s NS because not only does it localize everything in one spot (with a much cleaner and easier to manage CP), but it also supports all domain features including IPv6 (which we now support).
Web Pages MAY fail to load. This will probably last for 1-3 hours, especially if you do not clear your browsers DNS cache. We’re sorry for any downtime that this may cause.
We’ll make another post later when NS’s have moved over successfully.
Skaianet DL Servers Moved
We’ve recently moved download servers. They’re still hosted on DigitialOcean, but we’ve started hosting them on Ubuntu and optimized/secured it a lot more.
You shouldn’t notice any downtime or interference, but if you do have any issues, please let us know!
There is currently a severe thunderstorm warning in the area. My internet is currently really spotty and may cut out. If this happens, we’ll try to get things back up as soon as possible, but we wanted to give everyone a heads up.
Rust Apocalypse by William Ascenzo is now on Skaianet!
We know a lot of people are huge fans of the coloUrs and mayhem albums, so, why not have some more music by the person who made some of it? Ascenzo was kind enough to give us permission to play this, as well as their remastered version of Rust Apocalypse on SNR.
Unfortunately, this will NOT be downloadable through our DL site. Please visit her official bandcamp to purchase the album for yourself and help support the her! :)
soooo the IRC isn't showing up on skaianet/radio or skaianet/webchat also on espernet. ""The operation timed out""
Everything is still up. I used multiple tools to check if EsperNet’s webchat was up and is Skaianet was up and they all said things were fine. Make sure you have cookies enabled and that the connection isn’t being blocked (sometimes happens on public networks like schools).
EDIT: EsperNet was messing with some servers last night and I think it carried on to this morning. That might be one of the issues. Only thing to do is wait. :\
You could always download an IRC client and connect through that instead. Also, it’s skaia.net/chat - not /webchat.
Would you be interested in a Skaianet Charity Event?
Basically, we want to hold a huge Skaianet charity event (through something like Child’s Play) so we can raise money for those who really need it. As great of an idea this might be, we want to gauge what you all think first. If we get enough people interested, we’ll definitely start planning things out!
Keep in mind, this will probably be a gaming marathon stream with other smaller events on the side like giveaways, talk shows, special guests, etc, and we do have some people ready to be involved.
Click here to vote. It’s really important that you vote so we can keep a tally of what you all think. The more votes the better!
*PLEASE be sure to reblog/share this post! (not as a link)* We want to get as much feedback as possible. It’ll really mean a lot to us if you do.
If you have any questions, please feel free to send us a message and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
1000+ hours straight. Mission complete. Pass “Go!” an collect $200.
TeamSpeak back up and running!
We finally got a Non-Profit License from TeamSpeak, so we could finally set up our TS server again. Everything should be good to go and back to the way it was before.
- The server now holds up to 64 people
- Donators will be given an icon of their choice next to their name.
- Fan projects/groups can be given private channels upon request.
- TeamSpeak is still better than Skype.
A better guide on how to use TeamSpeak will be written again later. Anyone is welcome to join, but be respectful and please… have a decent microphone. (Not everyone wants to hear tons of background noise or the sound of someone talking through [or eating] a potato.)
Skaianet GISHWHES Team
Attention all Skaianetters!
We’re forming a team for the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen.
Here’s how it works:
On August 2, they release a list of things they want things to do. These things can vary from making a dress made of cheese to ordering a burger in Shakespearian English to hugging people. Teams of 15 people submit pictures and videos of these to earn points.
After a week, the team with the most points wins and gets to meet irl on a pirate ship in Croatia with Misha Collins. We’re probably not going to win, but it will be a lot of fun just participating.
If you’re interested in joining, the website is here: http://www.gishwhes.com/
Also hop on the irc to let me or Dirk know so we can get you set up with the rest of the team. It costs $18.99 to sign up, but if you can’t afford it right now I might be able to help. Registration ends tonight, so hurry!
You should all totally join in on this! We already got quite a few people so it should be a lot of fun! :D
