gMONO Review posted
OCmodshop :: Thursday, October 24, 2002
I have just reviewed the AMS gMONO case from www.case-mod.com. I noticed lately that a lot of sites only do little one-page reviews for cases, that just say “Oh hi here’s a case it looks nice the end.” I can’t stand that, so I got inside and got the whole scoop on this case. Hope you enjoy it, if you have any comments please email me at spamsk8r@ocmodshop.com

Server back up and running
Wednesday, October 23, 2002
Well OCmodshop has been switched to the new server and hopefully everything will be better. I have taken down the left nav menu as it was really slowing down page load times. I will probably put it back later when the code is made smaller. Also the custom 404 error page still needs to be put up along with the 500 error pages, hopefully that will be done tomorrow. The contest is still going on so add your case. Also please head on over to the forums and chat. I took my finals today in college so I can relax a little and work more on OCmodshop so check back all the time!

Apologies for the downtime
OCmodshop :: Monday, October 21, 2002
As you may or may not have noticed, OCmodshop was down from around 4pm Saturday until noon today. I apologize for the downtime and am not very happy with my hosting service. They are in the process of moving me to a better server which should decrease the downtime here. If I continue to have problems with the hosting after that time I will be chaning hosts and letting you know who they are so you can stay away.

Update on the hosting situation
OCmodshop :: Friday, October 04, 2002
Well you are probably as frustrated as I am with the slow speeds and downtime that has been going on here. When I upgraded to the new site which runs off .NET everything went to shambles because their server could not handle all the traffic. Tomorrow I should be upgrading to a better server which will make everything better. In the mean time please don’t give up on OCmodshop were just at a kink in the road.
