    Something's up with cellperformance.com (and has been for a while):

    Yeah - we've looked into it and it seems like someone was able to drop a virus on the server. Ugh.

    It should be clean now, but I imagine it might take a little while for these checks to recognize that. Actually I don't even know how to update them - so if anyone has helpful info on that, I'd appreciate it.

    Mike.

    It looks like there are still issues?

    Argh! Thanks for letting me know guys. I got a couple of emails today too.

    I think I'm going to take this weekend to start fresh. Maybe get a different provider that can manage security a bit better. This really sucks. (I'm open to suggestions for good+cheap alternative hosts - you can PM or email me.)

    I have a bunch of content I've been sitting on for a long time too that I haven't posted. Putting all my energy in to our Insomniac posts and neglecting my own. Plus I'm lazy like that.

    I'll fix it up.

    Mike.

    Up and running!

    Hello all! We're back up and running. You should not get any more malware warnings.

    I have moved hosts as well.

    I could think of no better host than Beyond3d itself! Rys and the folks here at Beyond3d have very kindly offered to host CellPerformance and so we can all be confident in this one. :)

    I want to give a big thanks to Beyond3D themselves - who not only host the forums, but now the entire site - but also to you guys, who've been such a great source of feedback and ecouragement.

    Note: All the content has been moved, though a couple things come from older backups so there's a few bits here and there that were lost in the move, unfortunately. Also I haven't yet redirected all the old links to point to the new locations. I'll be fixing that up soon (if any of you have deep links around somewhere.)

    Mike.

    It's my pleasure to host it, since CellPerformance is such a high quality resource so I'm almost duty bound to help out. I've put the site's data into the normal backup routine now, and now that I've fixed the site's recent perf issues, everything should be good.

    Really happy to be helping, long live CellPerf :D

    Excellent. This is the ideal home for it. Now we just need to attract discussion. T.B. was asking about Cell developers and I pointed him here. I'm sure he and Mike could have some good discussion about PS3 optimisations. I suppose there are NDA limits to what can be publicly spoken about.
