All Bad Things Happened Today
Today was not a very good day. Early this morning, we had a DNS
server crash and all the domain names were down for a good part of the
day. I apologize for this issue, but it seems that the DNS is
slowly, but surely coming back online. Everything should be fully
functional by this evening. Also, we are cutting down on accounts
and not accepting anyone. The server is EXTREMELY over-crowded and
members are abusing the server. Accounts will be deleted without notice
tomorrow. So, backup your files just in case.

Image Galleries Banned, Accounts Being Deleted
After a few weeks of extremely increased bandwidth usage, I have
determined that numerous image gallery scripts are to blame. They
are slowing down server resources and are no longer allowed to be used on
The Zack Network. If accounts continue to use image galleries, they
will be deleted without notice. I am also cleaning up our
network, so accounts not following the rules or just using our services
mainly as storage space, will be deleted WITHOUT NOTICE. The network
has been somewhat over-capacitated and congested and I have to clean this
up in order to keep our services stable and reliable. Thank you.

E-Mail Server Outage Fixed....Other Updates
First of all, let me apologize for the severe lack of updates these
past TWO months. The site has been running incredibly stable for the
past two months and nothing new has come up that I needed to update you
on. The 48-hour problem with the E-mail server has been resolved
now, some of you did not even notice it, but most of you noticed that you
weren't able to send emails. That has been fixed and should not be
an issue anymore. All the emails that you tried to send during the
problem have been delivered so you don't have to resend them again.
And about account applications. I know I have not been accepting a
lot of you, I've been called the "hardest host to join." So this
week, Monday-Friday I will be accepting a total of 20 applications.
So your chances, if you make your application especially good, are looking
pretty good. Granted I do get over 8000 applications a day, I will
still be able to recognize the good from the bad. So if you tried to apply
in the past and did not get accepted, reapply again and you will have a
good chance of getting accepted. Also, mention in your description
you had applied before and did not get accepted. So that's all for
today. Next update will be in 5 years ;-).

E-mail Server is Back Online... Problems Still May Occur
The E-Mail server is online and running at the moment, but the server
is still not stabilized. You still may get errors when trying to
send email. But at the moment, you should be able to send/receive
email. We're still working on the issue.

E-mail Server is Down
We are having issues with our email server. At the moment, you
will not be able to send/receive email. We are working to resolve
this issue as quickly as possible. However, the current ETA of the
E-mail Server is more than 24 hours due to major complications.
Please bare with us!

Signup applications are now opened. Keep in mind, the same rules
to get your application accepted still apply. We aren't accepting
everybody still. Thanks for sticking with us. We look forward
to a great 2004!

I hope your having a wonderful Christmas. I have a little
Christmas present for my hosted sites and people who are looking to sign
up. Tomorrow afternoon, we are upgrading our connection! This
means that there will be no more time-out errors! We will also
reopen applications and begin accepting immediately on December 27, 2003.
We're gearing up for 2004, it's going to be a great year for The Zack
