We have tried to do all we can, but as we make the move up north, we will not have the internet access we need to run the server
Today is my last day at work, next Saturday I move to our new house ahead of GameOva and June 25th I start a new job in Woodruff, WI.
I am going to post the server and scripts on a link to dropbox. Perhaps someone can run it. The new game client and content updates would be awesome!( I have had no spare time to get those incorporated )Maybe we just start with a new totally updated server!! OMG!!!!
I have waited to this time to post this, because I just could not bring myself to do just that.
What a LONG strange trip it's been and I am going to miss all of you!
I am not disappearing and if anything you will probably see me more on here starting in July. We will have to find a place to game though. Antenna TV and northwoods DSL....Uuuuuughhhhhhh......
Have to go before I start thinking about this post.
Love you all!
ps: and there will be no dividing by zero in my absence!

I can do the updating when I have the time & keep the server *alive* as best I can, but not sure on the hosting/running of one. We ended up extremely short handed at work & I'm literally scheduled over time for the next who know's how long.
Sorry, I can’t hangout. My uncle’s cousin’s sister in law’s best friend’s insurance agent’s roommate’s pet goldfish died. Maybe next time.

I understand how things go. I will keep checking in to see how things stand since I hope something ends up working out. This iteration of UO has met all my needs and wants and I have been very content here as have my brothers and sons. We had a lot of fun building the ranger village on Skara mainland and adventuring with all of you when time permitted. So, not goodbye, but see all of you later.
I am pretty sure I speak for everyone in the community when I say, thank you to Shazzy and GO for all your time, commitment, and dedication over the years not only hosting the server but developing it, caring for it and its community and being all round awesome people!
While I have not been an active member of this community over the last few years I have always kept tabs on how things have been going periodically, and checked in here and there.
Hopefully a server can be sourced and Shazzy's Shard can continue to operate.
Throwing this out there, to the 'active' members, have you considered pooling in a few bucks a month each for a VPS or Dedicated server? It is a very common practice for communities these days and potentially for the same price as a cup of coffee per month the server could be keep running.
I am not sure of the activity of the community now but it could potentially be quite viable for a few members to coordinate and pool towards a sever to run the server.
I might be able to assist with a shared dedicated server but it would be based in Australia.
Anyway, I hope everything works out, I have always loved Sharry's Shard.
Thank you again, Shazzy, GameOva, and of course the past and current and hopefully future Shazzy Shard team that have help run things over the years and with things working out for years to come.
absinthe: Happy Holidays All, and birthday Gwen

Ryu: Hello all, its been a LONG time! I was with you guys years ago, but now I have decided to come back to the fold. I wanted to thank Shazzy for providing me a chance to play again. I never forgot about all the fun I had here, and I am happy to be back!

Shazzy: Tralalala, I miss UO!!!!!

gwendydd: O, man. How I miss you guys. I miss the Shards activities. I miss us. I just did sent an message to Rosebud if he could help me find another family shard without pvp, but since you both are missing it, I'l wait fingers crossed on your return.

gwendydd: I stil have a spare win 7 pc that can be set up as a server, but not by me. So if anyone knows a remote way. I'm all ears.

kyler: A few of us are hanging out at UOAlive if you guys want to try it out, but it's definitely no substitute for Shazzy's.
Apr 5, 2020 2:51:03 GMT -6
gwendydd: O, alright then, but my loyalty stays and always remains with Sharon and my Harrower event. The second Shazzy emails me we are up and running I'll drop everything and resume my Gamemaster duty's. So just for inspiration I'll be taking Tintagel over to see.
Apr 30, 2020 8:39:36 GMT -6
kyler: Oh yeah trust me, if Shazzy's ever comes back I'm coming back too.

gwendydd: I'm off to install UO classic on my no play pc. Shhhh. Thinking of using steam instead of razor, but I'm still bad with new things.
