It has come to my attention that Dreamhost is moving HARP from a server we've used for a while to a brand new server.

I don't know if this will affect our service sometime over the next seven to ten days, but if it does, that's why.

For more information: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Server_Moves

OK - it looks like my server has now been moved to a new server.

The page is working correctly... but the screenshots are not showing at this time. It's probably a new programming error because of this move. I will look into this as soon as possible.

(this is more of a note to self)

OK - this might be it:

Server Paths:
Please make sure you don't have anything like "/home/.SOMETHING/username" or /mnt/local/home/username as the path in any of your sites' scripts. Instead, it should just be "/home/username". If your site brings up an error now with something between /home/ and /username/ in the error message (or starting with /mnt/local/), then the path in one of your configuration files is incorrect and will need to be updated.

Little request:
Could the text for the random top score be placed beside the screenshot, rather than below it? It takes up too much space otherwise, on lower resolution displays (1024x768 or lower).

Yeah, you're right. I'll take a look at it as soon as I can. Thanks.

Just the right size for me. 256x256 shots, I think, would overdo it.

you mean if you add 128 more pixels the text will scroll off to the right? I'm assuming it's already scrolling because of the 256 images below, but 1024 should handle one 256 image and some text (768 pixels) to the right of it.

No, more that the news drops off the bottom of the screen on smaller displays.

Perhaps another idea if you must have the larger shots shown, would be to stick it on the right hand side of the page, with smaller text and a limit on the description, with the news text starting to the left of it.

there seems to be a 256 image issue on the info page.

Pages like:

http://www.homeactionreplay.org/gameinfo.php?gameid=407

used to display a 256 sized image now they dont display any image.

OK - I finally took care of this problem. Yup, related to the server move.
