Chicken Smoothie is not expected to go down anymore :)

Postby Nick » Mon Oct 29, 2012 12:00 am

Thanks everyone, it looks like Chicken Smoothie made it through the storm without a problem, so we've closed down our down.chickensmoothie.com backup site for now :)

Hurricane Sandy is closing in on the East Coast of the US, and we hope that everybody is staying safe and is prepared!

Unfortunately, the Chicken Smoothie server is also stored on the East Coast, right in the path of the storm. That means that it's likely that this website will be (temporarily) knocked offline sometime in the next few days.

The last time this happened to CS, we ended up having to restore a backup which was a day old, meaning that all of the forum activity and pet adoption / trading for that day got forgotten. But this time we're prepared, and are using a new backup strategy that we hope will lose nothing at all if CS gets hit by a storm! So you don't need to worry about your activity being rewinded by a day :). Our backups are safely out of the way over on the West coast of the US, and tend to be only a couple of seconds out of date.

We have set up an alternate website so that everybody has a place to chat while we work to bring CS back online :). It has a forum and an Oekaki to keep us occupied. Registration of new accounts on the site is disabled, but if you have a CS account here then you will be able to use that account to log in on the temporary site. When CS comes back online, the posts and drawings you made on our temporary site will be moved over to the CS main site :).

So please bookmark this address, which you can use if CS ever goes down:

Here's a weather map:

I am a wolf,
running through the trees.
Following the scents
on the midnight breeze.
I am a wolf,
standing with my beautiful mate.
We must stand strong and ]brave
and face any callenges sent by fate.
I am a wolf,
hunting with my pack.
With the young and old wolves waiting
for meat to be brought back.
I am a wolf,
wild, fierce and free.
Living in forests and mountains
s t r e t c h i n g as far as the eye can see.
I am a wolf,
I'd never want to be anything more.
And I hope that even after I'm gone,
there will be wolves forevermore.

Goodd luck everyone, and bve safe
Let your colors burn and brightly burst

And illuminate a world that'll try to bring you down
But not this time

Thanks Nick, that's a good idea.
I have a question though; If the site goes down during the Halloween event, would the event be extended slightly more than planned to give us more time to trade in tokens?

Thank you Nick! I do hope that we won't have to go through that mess again xD If we do, it'll be fine. Good luck everyone on the East Coast! Please stay safe and be alright.

Oh cool, extension. That'd be lovely <3
