swfchan is back online after the longest downtime in several years: 11.5 days!
What happened was I decided to restart the server's connection like I've done many, many times before. But for some reason it got stuck this time and stopped accepting connections. So I contacted support. No response, eventually I got back the emails due to them being impossible to deliver. So I tried other emails. Eventually I managed to track down the company owner through a different company and all I got was "we're working on getting the support mail up again". I explained my problem but there were no further communication and nothing happened, even though most likely all that was needed was a manual force-reboot by them. I can't really remember how long I've been a customer of theirs (six years maybe?) but with all the recent minor connectivity issues this was the final straw.
So after looking around for something suitable we're now online with a different company. I have no idea how stable these guys are but on paper the site should actually be faster than before. I hope their hardware can handle the site's traffic just fine. We'll see how everything works out, for now I'm just very happy to get swfchan back up in time for Christmas! Merry Christmas guys!
(Threads and flashes were archived like normal during the downtime.)

|/f/ here, thank you very much for working so hard to get the site back up and running. Here's to hopefully not having any issues with the new company, and you not having to worry about this shit anymore for the holidays.|

|I wasn't even hoping for swfchan to made it back this year. Fingers crossed on the new host to solve problems faster than the last one.|

No, but seriously, thanks for everything you do, Ants. The flash community couldn't be where it is today without you.

|Thanks for the news! I was kinda worried, hoping there wasn't some takedown shenanigans or something, all I was able to find on the internet was "Welp, it's down." Glad to hear it's back up and running, and thank you so much for your hard work in keeping the site running!|

|Got some issues, I think it's on swfchan's side ... Hard to tell around newyear.|
Get a lot of cloudflare connection errors, or just regular timeouts, the site seems slow overall. It's very sporadically though. Some of the time it works just fine.
Tried uploading a 40mb flash to /gg/, but I get a connection timeout everytime.
Looks like a rocky start with the new server, or people just now noticed swfchan is back on and start flocking in en masse.
Here's to a new prosperous year on swfchan. Cheers!

|I've noticed the site's been slow too. Just restarted the new connection and that seem to have done the trick? Have been hesitant to do it during the holidays since it's what got us into this mess in the first place on the old conn but now that I know it works I'll try to do it more quickly whenever I notice the site is sluggish.|
Happy new year people!
Edit: Made it so that it auto-restarts every day now. Happens during the time when swfchan usually has the smallest number of users online. Sucks for those downloading a flash right at that moment but I reason that 30 sec of downtime every day is a small price to pay for non-diminishing speeds.

Thanks dude, happy new year to you too.
