withgusto is done - the end
« on: April 01, 2015, 12:30:43 am »
The End :'(

Officially, withgusto will close down starting today. Unofficially, it was shut down a few months ago, right after the DDoS attack.

We no longer have the resources nor time to write code, manage the server, run our services, and purchase server capacity. This is evident with our downtime for the last 3 months.

For those who have data on our server, we are providing a request form for backups:
http://withg.org/backup/

Please submit a request as soon as possible, and our backup script will create a backup within 24-48 hours.

Data will be permanently erased within 7 days. Backups that are not made are subject to data sale to 3rd party advertisers, as a way of recouping the costs of the server.

In the mean time, air forces rcfreak0 and Eeems are available to help transition your move to their servers.

Thank you to those who decisively flew withgusto. It has been a great ride, but as the captain, we must come to a landing and to an end.

Thanks everyone for a great 6 years!

Sorry for the troubles,
Captain alberthrocks


EDIT: APRIL FOOLS! Though it looks like many people took it seriously... :p

If that's an April's Fools joke, that's a pretty terrible one. Oh well.

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

APRIL FOOLS! It looks like many people took it seriously... and actually added their name to the backup list! :P

Sorry for the terrible April fools joke - but in a sense, I feel like I sorta had to joke about it on April 1st to affirm that indeed, we are NOT going anywhere... even if we like to play elaborate pranks about it!

In fact, it's quite the contrary! There a sentence in the original post that has negatives. Logically, if it's April 1st, the opposite is true - at least one of those sentences is true! I won't confirm nor deny which one is correct, but indeed - there IS work being done in the background to make everything happen!

Again, I continue to apologize for the massive delays - we're working to get the move started as soon as we're ready!

This. Also the fact nobody but me replied is equally as terrible, come on guys, nobody bothered to say something?
