Well, I have some good news for you. I've been investigating different ways to keep the servers online until Google releases the Channel API to our production server, and I may have an answer. It will take me some time to implement it, but it should fix our downtime problems.
And while you wait for that, the wonderful folks at WonderProxy have stepped up and offered us a sponsorship. They've given us enough cash to keep us online for a little over two weeks, while we get our new implementation up and running. They've also offered to host servers for us, which our new implementation will probably be taking advantage of. I hope you'll all join me in thanking Paul Reinheimer and WonderProxy for all they've done for us.
