How about "SnowDog"?

It would make a nice line of Melee bots, and the colors could be white-white-black.

My team could be "DisciplesOfTheSnowDog", and my twin duel team would then have to be "ByTorAndTheSnowDog"(after the events of The Necromancer, of course).

By the way, Happy New Year!

Am I really the only Rush fan here?

Any respectable geek community of this size should have at least three or four. :)

Sheldor22:00, 7 January 2013

Heck no! I love Rush. And I know Darkcanuck (though absent lately) is at least somewhat of a fan. Big thumbs up from me for the SnowDog naming scheme. :-)

Voidious22:03, 7 January 2013

Great! I'll start working on that as soon as I fix ÉpéeistMicro.

Speaking of Darkcanuck, does he still manage the rumble server? Both Tkiesel and I requested USA flags, but we haven't gotten them yet.

Sheldor15:17, 8 January 2013

I'm not sure what's up with Darkcanuck. We haven't heard from him in a while on the wiki, and I even emailed him a few months ago and never got a response. Apparently someone's still paying for darkcanuck.net, since we still have a rumble server. But it is at the point I'd consider moving to a new rumble server just to be safe.

Voidious17:01, 8 January 2013

I emailed about getting a key for the query API awhile back and haven't heard anything. But hard to know if it's even the right email address. At one time I think I offered to help support any ongoing maintenance costs. That offer still stands for whoever hosts in the future, be it Darkcanuck or someone else.

Skotty19:32, 8 January 2013

Really? Maintenance costs are what were preventing me from trying to raise another server. Free clouds severely limit resources, and I was thinking in implementing a Ranked Pairs ranking system, which consumes a lot of main memory to calculate in a reasonable time.

Current APS, PL and ELO systems can be implemented with fewer resources in free clouds, but I wasn´t willing to go all the way only to repeat what is already being done in Darkcanuck´s and Skilgannon´s servers.

I'm also willing to pitch in (or purchase) if we need a new RoboRumble server (or App Engine account or whatever).

Voidious15:52, 9 January 2013

I don't particularly have a problem with using the lite rumble.
