Unexpected Downtime

Upgrades and Updates

Well, that didn't go quite as planned! Being 2020, that 5-10 minutes of downtime I mentioned in the last update turned out to be much longer...If you visited the site in the past few days, you may have found some pages not working or the site down entirely. Everything should be back online now, and I'm working on upgrading and updating the backend as well so it may be a few more days before I'm back to adding new content, but the good news is it should be a while before I have to perform a large update like this again and next time I can be prepared for some of the snafus that occurred....

Scheduled Maintenance and New Platforms

Fall 2020 Site Updates and Cool Stuff 3

Fall is here, Halloween is just a few weeks away, and because it's 2020 life is keeping as all on our toes! Coming up on November 5th PixelatedArcade will be undergoing some scheduled site maintenance; you may find the site intermittently unresponsive that evening, although (hopefully) downtime should be pretty minimal. Additionally, I've begun quietly adding some Nintendo Entertainment System games along with plans for the Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum, and MSX coming soon. There is an impressive catalog of games for these systems individually, let alone combined, so like everything it will be a slow work in progress...

Missing Events and Photos

The Coronavirus Cancelled Events

Under normal circumstances I would have spent the past week at Dragon Con and then a few days afterwards editing all of the photos I took. Unfortunately, the event was cancelled; I can't say I blame the organizers, social distancing is quite impossible there and given the current situation with Covid-19 it had the potential to be a real disaster. Instead, I spent the week tending to real life obligations; if you would like to see my past photos, check out the set at PixelatedImages Dragon Con Gallery. I also just learned today that MAGFest (The D.C. area Music and Gaming Festival), originally scheduled for January 2021, has also been cancelled for the year. Same story, and again it's hard to blame the organizers for having to make this tough decision. Other events, while not officially cancelled yet, are (I'm sure) watching the situation closely. Not much of an update this month, but I do have a lot more to add to PixelatedArcade and PixelatedImages, so until then thanks for checking in and please stay safe, stay healthy, and take care!
