Time to get FIBS out of the closet? (attic)

It has come to light that FIBS runs on "a server in Patti's attic".
I run a server in my attic and it uses $20-30 of electricity every month. And then there is the hardware maintenance cost (hard drives, fans, upgrades).  I need to have a physical server for my consulting business but, for something like FIBS, a virtual server (Amazon, Google, Azure) might be cost effective.

we don't need any .of that.  we have tiger already up and going for a long time.  Hannes has been keeping it going.  all we need is a tourneybot there and people.  there are already other bots to play with.  to get there, just change your fibs.com to ti-ga.com and you're good to go.  ;)))  in fibszilla, go to preferences, then change fibs.com to ti-ga.com.  also change in the connect box that comes up.  it's very easy to do.

if and when fibs is back up, we can change back.  I don't know if this is a permanent condition with fibs or not, but we do have an option, so see you all on tiger. ;)))

of course we are thankful for the years Patti has put in for us and hope the reason is not a personal one like health, but this is a solution for now and thankful to Hannes that we have a backup.

Nevermind.

Two of my "friends" told me the site was back and they were playing.

If you see them on the site, PLEASE BAN THEM IMMEDIATELY.

:D

FIBS IS UP and Running. You need to set the server to fibs.com the isp address does not work.
I would rather be villified for doing the right thing, than be praised for doing the wrong thing. -unknown, very likely it was me.
