Automatic Upgrades
7.10.2017 posted by jadendreamer13@gmail.com
Hey guys, I have been working on getting automatic upgrades back up and running again. My main server has been having a lot of availbility issues while I was testing out a new server setup when we were having server issues. Long story short, that server has been reverted to what we were using before and seems to be more stable now. This means you should be able to automatically purchase and get your upgrades again. I have a few emails from people having trouble with racetracks still that I'm looking into and hope to have fixed by the end of the week.

If you have any trouble with your upgrade please email me so I can get it sorted out. If you put in a dispute in PayPal I can't fix the upgrade right away, I have to wait for the dispute to end (ie give you a refund) before you can get your money back and try to upgrade again.

Server Issues
6.16.2017 posted by jadendreamer13@gmail.com
Hey guys, I spent the morning trying to figure out why we've been having so many issues with shows and races not running. It looks like there were a few things going wrong that I've made changes to in an effort to fix the problem. I also restarted the server to make sure that wasn't causing the problems either. I'm sorry for the lack of updates, my work has been super crazy and we have a major deadline in 3 weeks that if we don't meet it could mean loosing my job, ugh! I'm hoping things will finally settle down after that.

Spring Time!

Hey guys, spring is in the air and it's long past time we got warm weather and sunshine again. I have still been super busy, running the farm and working at a new job so you'll have to forgive my lack of updates. So here's the state of things:
  • Email is still hosed, I'm about to give up on it. If you need me you can use my gmail account jadendreamer13@gmail.com
  • New server seems to be working much better. I added RAM and CPU and I haven't seen any issues with shows running since.
  • Crickett is helping out with making sure shows run and special pics get posted. She is also going to be reviewing and picking our new newspaper managers. If you're interested in applying for newspaper manager you need to fill out an application. Applications are due on April 30th
  • We have be having an issue with upgrades going through because the server we use for payments has been going down a lot. I'm testing new server software on it and it's been pretty unstable. If you want to upgrade and it doesn't go through or you get an error message please email me at jadendreamer13@gmail.com and I can send you a PayPal invoice.
Server Upgraded Successfully

Hey guys, I wanted to let you know that the server has been successfully upgraded to a bigger and faster server with more CPU, RAM and disk space. Hopefully this will fix a lot of the issues we have been having with the CRON not running at night and the new shows not being created like they are supposed to. If you notice any big issues (horse photos are still missing right now) please email me and let me know. I took a backup before I upgraded us so I can restore it if anything is missing. Thanks!!
Server Memory Issues

Hey guys, we've been having issues with the server lately because we're running out of disk space on the server we are currently using. That's one of the reasons that shows haven't been running consistently or have been hanging up at night. So, I'm going to upgrade us to a larger server on Wednesday 22nd. That will mean the game will be down for some or all of the day during the server change. You wll also notice that your pictures on your horses may be missing - this is because I've removed them for now to make sure the server has enough space to keep running until wednesday. I will have the game re-generate them after we move to the bigger server. Thanks for your patience and understanding!
Email Not Working Again

Hey guys, my email has not been working again so I'm going to give out my personal email until it does. If you need to contact me you can use jadendreamer13@gmail.com.

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while I've been really busy at work and trying to find a new job again. I'm hoping things will settle down soon. In the meantime, I've fixed some shows and races that were stuck on December 31st and I have a new feature coming for the racing register that will allow you to reset your brand. I should have that up sometime today.
Hello Stranger

Wow, I can't believe it's been 3 months since I last wrote a newspaper post! So I wanted to fill you all in on my brief haitus. At the end of June I found out that my company was closing down our building and asking us to move to a new state. Which of course meant that I had to find a new job ASAP because I had no intentions of selling the new farm I bought recently. At the same time I got an assignment at work that was 10 weeks of working with another company which meant I was away more and had longer days than normal (I'm talking some days with a 5 hour commute!!!!). On top of that and looking for a new job my computer is broken (mousepad is stuck in right click mode), one of our servers is being email bombed and I had to shut down the email service completely, and I haven't been able to use anything other than my phone which is horrible for trying to update this newspaper on our servers. Long story short, I've found a new job and things are starting to settle down in my crazy schedule and I'll have enough money for a new laptop soon. That being said, I'm sorry for the delay in email responses and I'm working my way through them over the next few days. We had a few weeks where PayPal was not creating upgrades properly so if you paid for an upgrade and it has not appeared on your account please let me know so I can get that corrected or refund your money if you'd like a refund instead.
