USOOG IRC Migrated to Freenode

The USOOG IRC Network has been migrated to Freenode this evening. Freenode is an IRC network that is commonly used by many free, libre and open source project. The migration is carried out to ensure that we are able to reach a wider audience than at present, and to provide a way to chat with other people in cases where the USOOG server is down for any particular reason.

The IRC channel remains the same as with the previous server we used before migration, as #USOOG, so you can still chat with us on IRC using your favourite IRC client.

USOOG IRC Network Maintenance

Greetings to all members and site visitors :)

The Swedish Tower (TST) is currently performing maintenance tasks on the USOOG IRC network, so you may experience some technical hiccups while maintenance is taking place. The main purpose is to eventually integrate the IRC network and services into our games, so gamers can chat with each other while they play.

We apologise for any inconvience that the maintenance work may cause you while you visit the site, and our IRC chatrooms.

Creep Attack Downtime

As some of you noticed the site has been very slow and sometimes even game gateway timeouts!

All these problems should be solved as of now as I have changed host. Site should be much faster and gateway timeouts should not happen anymore.

If the site is still slow please let me know!

Site done!

As of today Creep Attack has a website! Here I will post about progress made in Creep Attack as well as screenshots, features and many other things!
