Hey guys, we're moving the game server (the one that handles high score reporting, clouds in world of goo corporation, etc.) to a bigger faster computer. Scores submitted in the next few hours will not be counted, and you won't see any clouds. Back in a bit!

Nice :D Now I won't feel the need to spend time on WoG, and can finish cleaning my room :P

Ok I think it's up. Now we just wait for dns propogation. If "" resolves to "" for you, then your scores will be recorded.

Kyle: I noticed my clouds disappearing at about that time on Sunday, but I have yet to see them return. The sign in the background (in which I initially chose to connect to the server) still reads the same "Each cloud is another player's tower" message. Is there anything I should do to fix this?

Are you on windows XP? If so, go to start -> run > type: 'cmd'
Then in the window type 'ping'

It should return as a first line:
"Pinging [] with 32 bytes of data:"
If the number between the brackets is different from this one, then you just need to wait a while longer. If it's not, then you have some other problem...

I'm on Vista (wish I still had XP, though that's another rant for another thread), but I did manage to get that same IP address... However, I did try again, and I've got the clouds back! Thanks for your help!
