Syphernet News

[Update] Migration has been finished, nameservers have been updated. Sites on the network should load faster, according to the host.

I have just received an email from our webhost informing me that we are being moved to new hardware, in fact, a full upgrade it happening.

Only problem, I haven’t really been given a date other than they will contact me again in 48-72 hours.

So, what does this actually mean? Right now, I need to do nothing, but when the upgrade is complete, I’ll may have to updated ALL the nameservers, so, at some point, all the Syphernet.com Network sites will be down until they are moved.

Today, Syphernet.com is 10 years old!
Really, 10 years today I started Syphernet.com. And well, its not really grew much since them.

There have been lots of Ups and Downs in these 10 years, projects have failed (Dopetopia, Skaters UK), ideas that haven’t taken off (Games Eclipse, Gonzo Local) and projects that just keep on going (Pure Boredom), but, its been a fun 10 years, even with the stress associated with running something like Syphernet.com.

So, what’s in store? I have no idea. Another 10 years hopefully, some old projects coming back to life and Pure Boredom being the Entertainment Hub its should be.

Until then, here’s to 10 Years, Cheers!

Update 16/01/13: All the sites are moved and setup, faster than expected.

Greetings! I have some news, some good news!

Syphernet.com, and its Project sites, are on the move to a new host. And the move is happening this week, Wednesday 16th Jan 2013.

So, why is this happening? Well, my current hosting, who I have been using since about 2005, doesn’t offer any growth, there is a 1gb space limit and a bandwidth limit, it also doesn’t offer Add-On Domains, which is something that will help alot when it comes to the project sites.

Add-On Domains will provide better links for the project sites, as you see them now, it could be written as “pureboredom.net/link” but will re-direct you to “pureboredom.syphernet.com/link” (The Avanta Files also does this too). With the Add-On Domains, that re-direct wont happen, even though all the sites are in the same place.

Now, with good news, there is always some bad news – While the move is happening, Syphernet.com will be down for upto 72 hours (3 Days) and its possible Pure Boredom and The Avanta Files will be down a little longer, I will probably need to wait until the DNS records on Syphernet.com are updated before I can update the records for the Project sites.

Cya all on the other side!

Things have been quiet on Syphernet.com lately, not because I haven’t been working on anything, but because I haven’t really had anything to post about. But, I sort of do today,

As of a couple of days ago, I officially gained ownership of the Dopetopia name, only part ownership, 50%, but its more than I had before. We have a few ideas floating around to re-launch the site, but there a little outside our technical expertises. I’ll have more news on that, probably next year.

I have also been working a lot behind the scenes of Pure Boredom, getting things in place to start getting some regular content out and expanding that into something bigger. There is still a bit of work to do getting it all locked down, but hopefully, soon(TM), you should start seeing something regular coming out of Pure Boredom.

That’s all for now folks, stay classy internets.

Welcome to the All New Syphernet.com!

Syphernet.com has been through a lot since its launch in 2003, most of it a fail because, well, goals where far to big. This Syphernet.com, is a lot smaller.

Its a home for all of my little projects, from Pure Boredom to The Avanta Files and all the defunct ones in between. Its sort of a shell company type of thing.

If you want all the latest news for any of my projects, this is the place to be. You can follow us on twitter @Syphernet

I hope you enjoy what you see.
