    Back up after about a week's outage, sorry. Clearly I need to check this more often, like every day. I'll try to do that going forward.

    The extensive outage recently was due to the VPS host, CloudAtCost. I'm done with them. I've just opened an account with a new host, VirMach.com. So far, it seems better than C@C ever was -- maybe a little slower, but more consistent.

    The pointer is already switched over, and users shouldn't have to do anything special to make it work. Some of you may lose your usernames, because I'm not able to get the current list off of C@C; but you can reenter them, and there's no impact except for what name is displayed, which only matters in dual-player mode, which nobody seems to use anyway. :)

    So, this looks like the end of the line for HME apps, including Reversi. Shame, since I finally got a stable host for it. Anyway, for those who are still able to use it (older model TiVos that don't get updated), I'll leave it running for at least the next year. But it'll be even more on autopilot than usual, since I won't be able to play it myself.

    My web host just got bought out, and the new owners are going to change my IP. Up until now, Reversi has (after going missing for a while) continued to work on systems where it was already added; but IIRC, on newer software, it's no longer possible to put in a new IP, so those boxes will lose it. It may still work on really old TiVos, or, you may be able to access it through David Blackledge's app, if you've put that in.

    I'm not sure when the change will come into effect; I'll post when I know.

    (Note that this is all about the host for wmcbrine.com, not the VPS hosts I talk about above. The only part of Reversi that's on wmcbrine.com is a silly little index file and an icon, but that's where the IP points.

    The whole history of HME might've been different if TiVo had allowed domain names instead of IPs...)

    I could add it on a Roamio Pro, but not a Bolt
