Times out here too.
Hope it's not a permanent thing.

Loading ok albeit a little slowly.

But that has to be the slowest Wonder Boy I've ever played!! Maybe it's undertaking site maintenance or something.

Hi everyone,

A few things happened recently.
First, I ditched my dedicated hosted server to go the self hosting way since I have an unused Raspberry at home.

Also, I changed my ISP recently to go to a cheaper one.
It was all fine and dandy except that I wasn't aware it doesn't provide a fixed IP address. :(
I'm trying to fix that problem using the DynDNS service of my DNS provider.
We'll see how it goes.

Seemed to be working for a while for me, until the last couple of days & the site is timing out again. :(
* Using some of the hardly used Amstrad compilers :D
* I use Firmware in my Assembly code :P
* Have interpreted some BASIC 1.1 programs for BASIC 1.0. :)

Damn, I thought I had fixed that problem once and for good. :/


Edit: The network interface on my server wasn't responding at all anymore. I searched but haven't found any configuration issue whatsoever. Simply rebooting the machine magically fixed the problem...
