You can also do this from your google account as well, it has lots of space

Hi all,
Sorry about the web site being down, the domain name expired and I had intended to simply pay it on the same date that it was scheduled to expire, however I didn't realize that it meant it would go offline first thing in the morning of the expiry day instead of having until the end of the day. I renewed, and here we are back online, I will make sure not to do that again next time  :o

Hope you all had great new years!

My highlights:

(1) I've played more Carcassonne this year than I have in my last 3 years put together. It's great to get back into the game more often, with my wife and I both splitting out time between Carc and her favourite game Catan.
(2) I've introduced a few more friends to Carcassonne. Sometimes as we get older we're always looking to save money, but at the same time our thoughts are that in order to have fun we have to go out and spend money. I've made more of a point of staying home, inviting friends to come play some games.
(3) Last but not least, I am so very glad that our community continues to flourish with the help of so many of you. I am thankful that we have each and every one of you, the authors, moderators, admins and most importantly community members here. I'd also like to thank kettlefish especially, she is my anchor and keeps me up to date on what is going on. Unlike most other social media platforms, this one is generally low on drama (although we have our occasional share). So from the bottom of my heart I'd like to thank you all for yet another good year here on Carcassonne Central!

We draw from a cloth bag, so once your turn is done you pass the bag.

Glad he finally got his gift! Excellent job all around, looked like a good time with good people, good food and good music. OH and a good game that brought it all together!  :yellow-meeple:

Very cool !   A video section for the forum is a possibility, but only if it is used on somewhat of a regular basis. I'll let the moderators decide

I've given the go ahead to increase space. No, we won't be spreading files or anything else across multiple servers, bad news all around once you start doing things like that.

The forum time is set via the server's clock. Sent a note to my sysadmin to take a look, thank you for the heads up

Yes it's odd. Time for web sites, software, forums etc are usually GMT with a checkbox for daylight savings time. This forum software I just noticed has a pick list for the location (nearest me is America/Vancouver) then an offset in hours, which was zero. So I left the location as is, and changed the offset. Let me know if it is working for everyone outside of Pacific time.

This is what I like to do, exploring in my 4WD Toyota. That photo was taken in Moab Utah in 2014. We travel all over western USA and Canada.

The domain doesn't expire until next year, it had nothing to do with that, the text at the bottom that said it was going to expire was just more phishing BS. Again, the problem wasn't on our side, it was likely a DNS attack that affected a bunch of infected computers (otherwise we'd all have the same issue, and only some did), or perhaps one of the higher tier DNS companies got attacked and fixed it.

2. Your internet provider's DNS service is suspect. If you know how, change your ethernet card's IPv4 DNS entries from auto to and which belong to google. Then try the address again, it should work normally and not be directed.

You could of course google this, but this might help. Making it sound like you need to change the ethernet card makes it unnecessarily scary. It can be done via the standard windows interface (say I writing this on a linux machine).

Ah nice tutorial! thanks!
