Downtime on Aeonity due to Server Upgrade.
Aeonity will be switching web hosting servers to a new improved and upgraded server. The new server will provide vast improvement over the old server.
As a result of Aeonity upgrading servers there will be downtime somewhere around 8:00 pm to 12:00 am Central Time. Please be aware of the downtime and make sure you keep a copy of any blog created in this time frame. We will be backing up the database and migrating the database to the new server but as everyone knows in the world of computers anything can happen.
We will try our best to have as little downtime as possible
Everything from 7:00 pm Central Time that has been posted on Aeonity will be backed up and able to be restored. We are sorry for any inconvience this causes and hopefully the new improved server speeds is well worth the change.

We have just released a new anti hotlinking system, that seems to be working really well. Jim and I are really pleased with how the system works so far its just the matter of time before its mastered.
Here is the idea. We have had many websites linking our Aeonity Games Flash Files to there website. No, not just a link from there website to ours...they were actually emedding our files and claiming it as there own.
Well, Jim spent the later part of the day creating an Anti Leech Code for our swf files, and I created some flash as a replacement to the game.
Here is how it works. When a visitor goes to there website, (before today) they would be able to play the game freely without any problems. Great for that website, bad for Aeonity. (Because of the stealing of bandwidth) But now with this new system, we created a flash movie that states:
Content Stolen From Aeonity.com
The a popup windo of Aeonity.com is shown, and if the visitor click the flash, they are sent to Aeonity Games. We understand that many people hate popups, but you know whats worse? People stealing your files, and hotlinking it to their website...costing aeonity bandwidth, server speeds, and a headache.
Examples of websites stealing from Aeonity
(Copy a website from above and place it in your address bar to see an example of our Anti Leech System)
Perhaps other webmasters will think twice before linking our files to there websites.
