Hi all, was there an issue with the server recently; I had tried to visit the site but it kept returning a cannot connect error, every day for almost a week. It may have been my sucky Internet, but I was just curious about the event.

I hope everyone is doing well.

Yup, just some outages on the server. My girlfriend and I have been cleaning out some problems with sites running alongside vrpg to try and stabilize the issue.

Also, hm. How can non-admins post to the front page now? ;)

Maybe it's linked to the forum category?

Who runs this place?!

Blaster Master?

Blaster Master runs Bartertown.

(But we all know Auntie Entity is the true puppetmaster.)

Hey, M_Dragon! Sorry, I didn't see this earlier on account of Grue letting the site blow up again the unfortunate events of the past week with the server. How's it going?

It's going...I just started senior year so now I have to worry about college applications :|, but thankfully my classes are good. How's life on your end?

Christ. That's where I was when I was using VERGE 1.

In 1997.


Also: is it worth it to go to college? Are you going into programmery?

I sure hope college is worth it, otherwise it's money wasted. I am going into mechanical engineering and computer science.

Your #old comment made me laugh, and makes me feel wicked young, even though I feel old relative to the rest of my school.

Side comment/question: How did you change your profile picture on here? I don't see any setting for it.

login to and set the email address you use at vrpg to have an avatar.

I think I should tell you that making games with Verge definitely first piqued my interest in programming. I want to thank you and everyone that helped to create such an awesome intro to game programming type of language.

Glad to hear it's still doing that. :) I think a lot of us, even if it wasn't our "first programming", it was one of the things that cemented our interest and love of making games.

Sorry it took me so long to respond! Life's been pretty hectic lately. Things are mostly pretty good though. I've even got a thing that Grue wants me to write about on the front page but... posting is a little busted right now, so we've got to get that cleared up first.

The Phantom of The Verge is at it again?
Or maybe it's just Grue?

Nah, at this point I think it's just 10+ years of PHP finally starting to collapse under its own weight.

Just post it and tell me and I'll fix it in the database.
