site outage, dragon update

Friday, June 18th, 2004

sorry the site was down for so long. i forgot to pay the hosting fee for this month, oops! anyway, your pets should be safe and sound.

i have a huge backlog of entries for the adopters list. i will be updating that later tonight. thanks for your patience!

speaking of patience, work on the dragons is going slowly. i want to make the dragons really special, and i plan to have advanced customization for them: multiple colours, changing the size of wings, different backgrounds, stuff like that. i will probably have to be a little less ambitious, though, if i want to actually want to get anything done!

however, i seem to have hit something like writer’s block. i need some more dragon inspiration. i will probably watch some dragon movies, and read some dragon books. if anyone has any recommendations, please post them here! thanks!

virtual pet catalog

Thursday, May 20th, 2004

the adoption centre now has a small catalog of virtual-pet-related products available from amazon. it’s just barely started, check it out. any purchases you make from that page will help support the site, too!

some site tweaks

Monday, May 17th, 2004

first, biggest change is that the home page has been revamped, woo!

second change: there’s a new tech section, which doesn’t have much in it yet, but stay tuned…

in pet news: work on the dragons is proceeding slowly. thanks for being patient!

you can now adopt puppies from the adoption centre!

yes, i know that dragons were #1 on the poll. not to worry– not only are dragons on their way, but they will get their own special adoption centre! this partly because dragons have their own very special needs compared to the other pets, and also to make sure that none of the other wee animals get eaten by the dragons!

building the dragon centre will take some time, though, so please be patient! and thank you for all the adoptions!

missing adopters on adopters list

Friday, April 16th, 2004

due to technical issues involving the web hosting move, if you tried to sign the adopters guest book during the last day or two, you’d get an error. sorry about that– if you adopted a pet and got that error, and would like to be in the adopters list, please email me directly.

pet images – back up temporarily

Friday, April 9th, 2004

hi cyber pet adopters–

the pet image hosting is back up, at least temporarily. i am working on a more permanent fix– probably involving getting another host to serve the images. while i am getting that in place, there’s a chance that your pet images will go missing again for a short while, in the future. i promise to keep any interruptions as brief as possible.

thank you for your patience, and thanks for being such good pet adopters!! the animals are so happy!!

site was down

Friday, April 9th, 2004

i don’t know if it was excessive resource utilization on my part or not, i haven’t found out yet. so, temporarily, the image hosting part of the cyber pets will be broken. sorry! i’m working on making it more effecient right now. thanks for your patience… and thanks for making my cyber pets so popular!
