Upgrading MadMappers server …

Maurizio 06 Feb 2009 | : Uncategorized

MadMappers website has just been temporarily moved onto the Free Earth Foundation  servers so that MadMappers server storage capacity can be upgraded. 

This move may result in weird thing happening due to broken links: please report faults by mailing us the page url in question.

For some years now the Free Earth Foundation  have unconditionally supported the MadMappers initiative providing bandwidth and server support. A big thanks in particular to Nowak (Adam), f0urtyfive (Matt) and Bull_[UK] (Daniel) who have dedicated much of their time and outstanding expertise to make things happen.

MadMappers’ fourth birthday … ooops!

Maurizio 05 Feb 2009 | : Events

Ooops, we missed it! It was 5 days ago :(

That’s terrible … to miss our own birthday!

We have been much too busy … still that is as unforgivable as forgetting your girlfriend, wife or daughter birthday … :(

I missed cake and candles … and the chance for reminiscing about the past.

I am not too late for a resolution: next year I want the cake no matter what and … why not … a dancing party as well  ;)
