Gentlemen's Lunchtime Association

Like a book club, but with video games.

Site is back up, still slightly broken

Hello all,

Long-running stability problems should finally be fixed. We have moved from MariaDB back to MySQL (please don’t sue me, Oracle), from CentOS to Ubuntu, and from Apache to nginx. Unfortunately the change to nginx means I can no longer write permalinks using .htaccess files, so the permalinks (e.g. ‘’) are broken right now. I will fix that when I can work out how to fix that.

If you had a login for the GLA FTP server or various other things, that won’t work anymore. If you do need a login I can set you up with an SCP login instead (same deal, different protocol).

Love, Cats
