Quotes from Gotti and Autoload
"Just got the official (and unfortunate word). XDrive is off the grid. They're trying to get back online, but it doesn't look good.
So the ride has ended for us and for lots of sites and servers.
Anybody who wants to pickup a serious bandwidth hog in exchange for massive advertisment let me know, otherwise I'm history.
"Will Work for Food"
RavenShieldMod.com has left the building.
"They are trying to get stuff back online. Right now they have the web servers running on a 4MB DSL line (instead of that fatty OC-12). FTP and SQL servers are unreachable at times as the network is FUGAZI. Game servers are offline completely.
If they get back online I and others will be back, but if they don't then I won't unless I can find another game host willing to flip the bandwidth necessary to run my server (210+ GB per month).
They have been good to me..no ill feelings at all. That's the way it goes"
Then from Gotti
"Ahhh... finally a way out of this game... thanks to all who visited the site. Been a fun ride..
Don't know about the of you, but this hits the community hard,IMHO. Another nail for the coffin. Both sites will be missed.
