|A new server was installed last night. The old one was upgraded to its limit and crashed when overloaded, particularly on weekends. Its replacement has more power and room to expand so Vimm's Lair should be stable once more.
The Redump refresh continues in the PlayStation Vault and each game from A-J is now Redump verified. Server upgrades and troubleshooting has slowed this effort so now it can kick into gear again.

|Vimm's Lair is back online! A disk error on the server corrupted the OS and it took a while to re-install everything. All should be back to normal now.

|As many have noticed downloads are still slow or not starting at all. While more bandwidth was added this week, now the disks can't handle the strain. Last night the main server was moved to a new box which holds more disks and has better cooling. Now data's being shuffled to even the strain and mirrors are being made, and this process will continue for many days. In the meantime download speeds will be kept low so downloads should work, but may last a while.
