Hi,

Last evening I got an e-mail from dimman telling me that something was wrong with pangela.se

It seems that this old hardware have found bad blocks on the HDD and was not able to write anything to disk. Unfortunatly I don't have access to this datacenter no more, and aren't in the position to change the drives. As I needed to force a reboot a few minutes ago, the server won't come up.

I think I've mentioned this before, but if this shows to be a hardware failure that the server can't repair by itself, pangela.se will be dead. This server is held in my old employeers datacenter (no more access). If I'm fortunate to talk my old workbuddys to do me some favours, the server will be replaced, but don't count on it.

I would like to thank everybody that have used pangela.se. It has been an honor to replace the old IoP server that stood in the same rack.

Until further notice, pangela.se won't be coming back.

Yours truly / pangela

The moment Persuader realizes he should not have shut down his own servers.

Sad story Pangela, thanks for years of great matches on those servers !

While i'm not playing qw anymore these days, i also saw how popular the pangela servers were, so thanks for the service for our community and who knows, maybe your workbuddies can revive the server after all..

Update!

The old server is dead, another way of looking at is that its 2013 now and cpu's are cheaper and easier to install and that makes this conclusion:

EB (dopezkillz, duelmania) and I have both Raspberry Pi ( http://www.raspberrypi.org ) that cost around 25 euros, we will try to install qw on it tonight and see how it handles QW server. If that goes out well, then we might put online 3 new servers:
1 Malmö
1 Stockholm
1 Göteborg

Any other ideas?

EDIT: 14:49 < pangela@> Atleast pangela.se #01 hit the 3.5 million frag mark.. :E

A total of 8.844.425 frags - 827837 minutes (95.5 YEARS) of play time - a total of 129718 matches.

I'm sad to hear that pangela.se might be down but there are still lot's of servers in Sweden -> http://www.quakeservers.net/quakeworld/servers/c=2/. If none of those are suitable it's also possible to rent cheap VPS for QW. For example Edis rents capacity from their servers at Nacka (Portlane.com). How's your ping to 46.246.93.1? 12ms from northern .fi.

Unfortunatly yes. Data was saved last in /demos from 2013-10-07 I think. But all was untouchable.

Sorry sir!

Anyone can put up a server in a few minutes with nQuakesv so this isn't such a big deal really.

Not everyone has access to a fast connection in an ideal location though. So unless someone actually does put up an equally good server, it could be a big deal.

Most people in the Stockholm area have pretty decent connections.
