There are now dedicated forums for discussing GDC related topics. There's a forum for bootcamp planning and discussion, one for the roundtables, one for sessions, one specifically for social gathering planning, and lastly, a forum to post links, videos, and slideshows from previous tech art talks at GDC.

Site is back up

Feb 28, 2013 - 9:36 PM - by Rob Galanakis
More unplanned problems. Basically, vBulletin is awful software and was creating endless temporary files which eventually caused Windows to fall over and die. In fact, I still can't delete the temp folder because Windows chokes on it!

The great news is, our backup system was working just as intended, so nothing should have been lost.

The bad news is, Windows hosting sucks, our Windows host sucks, and PHP sucks even worse than those. Maybe something we can do about that.

See you at GDC!
