OCMS News December 2002

Happy New Years Eve!
Tuesday, December 31, 2002
Well 2002 is almost over and 2003 is right around the corner. For some of you in other time zones it is already 2003 but here in California its still about 13 hours away. 2002 has been a great year for OCmodshop, a lot has changed and been improved. There are a lot of people to thank for this years success here, which include: all of my sponsors, supporters, friends, family, and many other people. There have been good and bad times this year with everything like there always is but that’s life. Come the new year I may be looking for another reviewer who can do Intel stuff so stay tuned to that. Everyone have a safe and fun new years eve!

Checkin in
Monday, December 23, 2002
I just wanted to post and let everyone know ill post something new as soon as I have time. With the holidays it’s hard to find the time to sit down and get things done. I am also trying to relax because this is the only real break I get from college until I graduate. Happy holidays, be safe, and continue to visit OCmodshop

OCmodshop is back up and running on the new server!
Tuesday, December 17, 2002
OCmodshop is back up and running after being down. The reason that the website was saying “You are not authorized to view this page” etc…. is because my hosting company suspended my account because they don’t know how to run an ASP .NET server. I got my server that I built up and running and is using a T-1 right now. My server is much faster than the hosting and I am able to do much more with it because I have total control. I apologize for the downtime and you weren’t banned from my website everyone including myself had the site saying my IP was blocked. My hosting company is www.nexpoint.net not only are they incompetent but they are also rude and unhelpful. I would suggest you never host with them or ever recommend them to anyone. Feel free to email them and let them know what’s on your mind if you are inclined to do so. They will be receiving a call from me on Monday and be hearing some unpleasant words and me saying you’re fired. Please let everyone know that OCmodshop is back up and running so we can get things moving once again. Hopefully my server will do well and be nice and stable, if there are any problems feel free to email me, PM me, or IM me and let me know. I will be writing a guide soon on how to build and configure a server but until that’s done here are the specs of the new OCmodshop server.
