    Stupid Guys, I'm shutting down Zoints

    I got rid of the server Zoints (and CD) was on, because it was running me $140 a month, and it was 5 year old hardware.

    The new server I set up (that CD is running on) is a VPS via Linode, and is costing me about half that.

    Zoints is having some serious issues, since it wasn't programmed for php 5.3, or much less, 5.4 (which this server is running). Also, the real problem is that the massive amount of rewrites that it does is having issues with Apache 2.4, and I don't really want to spend the time fixing them.

    So, whenever they shut the old server off, Zoints is going away. It was supposed to be 4 days ago, but who knows.


    So long, Zoints! I barely knew ye!

    CD does not deserve a VPS

    Isn't it pretty much the last "living" thing from LWS that actually came into existence during LWS' lifetime? But yeah it's been dead (except for spambots) for years and the original concept seemed half-baked so yeah.

    To describe it as half-baked is being quite generous and an affront to undercooking chefs

    but daitengu whatever will I do

    I have come to rely on zoints for all of my socialising needs

    my friends contact me on zoints when they want to talk to me about their favourite things

    when I plan to go outside and to the cinema with my close personal friends and my family members I arrange to do that using zoints.com

    sometimes I talk to people I know through zoints on zoints until 8pm in the evening and then I go to bed because it is late and I am tired then

    and when I get sad people will no longer see me telling them I am sad on zoints and they will no longer be able to say it is ok hydro everything will get better we are all here for you on zoints

    I think my life is going to be very lonely without zoints

    I do not know if I am going to be ok

    please help me

    So yeah I think Zoints is dead now. At least hydro can't tell me to shut up anymore since I won't be able to hear him from Hell.

    Wait did you/do you have control of Automodding.com? Me and some cool dudes were running that forum under Zoints and one day it just magically disappeared without anyone saying a word, and there was nothing I could do to fix it.

    No, I didn't have any control over the forums, that was all TGO back-in-the-day.

    It only took them 3 months to realize a server was running and no one was paying for it.

    Zoints is now officially shut down. Goodnite sweet prince.

    how did i miss that, wow

    My goal is to go into any room with Zoints employees in it and be the stupidest person in there. That way I have to ask a lot of questions, which causes those with incredible intellectual capacities to utilize their gifts.
    A) who has a goal of being the stupidest person in the room
    B) if you are the stupidest person in the room, why the fuck are you the one in charge of asking questions. they don't need your help to "utilize their gifts", they're already smarter than you, remember?



    Accomplishments? Well, none. Failures? Love 'em! He then goes on to quote Albert Einstein

    David Chapman is my hero. Even though everyone knows he loves hippos. We want to know the secrets of his life!

    Everyone should try Zoints out. I've been a member at David's main site (which turned into a guinea pig for Zoints ) for about 1 and 1/2 years now. The forums are great, and Zoints makes the internet a lot better in every way.

    TGO FTW!

    Upon further inspection of the state of the forums, I dare not, and retract that 'thrived'... But survived, at least!
