.. what happened?
My sincere apologises about the downtime recently.

3 things decided they wanted to screw with me that prevented the whole thing from being resolved:
  • First: The downtime itself: Sheer dumb luck caused one portion of the site's database to corrupt.. and for what-ever reason, caused everything to go down. Who knows why. Under normal circumstances, this would've been fixed immediately... how-ever...
  • Secondly: Virgin Media (my ISP) for what-ever reason... prevented me from actually accessing Inc itself. Yes really. It's utterly bizzare that this happened at the SAME TIME as the site going bork, but... you know, it rains when it pours. It's taken a bit of back and forth to get them to acknowledge Inc exists, but here we go, I can finally connect again.. which is kind of important when trying to repair things.
  • Third: Every so often, albeit not as commonly as it used to occur... I get really, *really* bad migraines. This doesn't happen too often anymore, but... well, of course, I was suffering from them last week, and as you can imagine... this also kind of prevented me from doing much of anything.

There you have it. A freak occurrence, my ISP being dumb and a health issue, decided that, yes, we're going to happen at the same time.

Wonderful.

Well... it's always annoying when everything happens at once.

Nice to hear that the actual problem was easy to solve, at least once the other problems cleared themselves up.

Hey, cool, a new Mega Man fan site. I've been looking for one since Sprites INC went—OH WAIT.

Kidding, kidding. Thanks for the update! Communication about stuff like this is always appreciated, and I'm glad to see everything's working again.

No matter where you go, there you are.

Though I rarely stop by anymore, I was legitimately concerned about Sprites Inc and what was probably the most baffling crash of it I've yet seen. Glad it's fixed!

I need to do something with this signature... ^_^'

RE: .. what happened?
Its good to see the site is back. I joined just to say that. And say thank you for this great work (yours sprites are the best and the most complete Megaman sprites collection). Im making a Megaman fan game (actualy a Protoman fan game lol). And all the material found here was really usefull for upgrading the game graphics. When the site was down I was afraid It was permanent and its good to see it wasnt.
I hope you are felling better now (about yours migraines). And yes when it rains it pours. A tree fell on my neighbor's shop at the same day he crached his car and someone stole his bike. But every cloud has a silver lining. In this case he has a better shop now.
