Sorry for the downtime of CricketGames.com. This was due to a dispute between myself and my provider CI Hosts. It grew out of a mis-undestanding of a bandwidth charge. Whilst I am allowed unlimited bandwidth for the site this does not include download files and I had too many downloads last month. This means I am going to have to locate downloads elsewhere which I am in the process of doing.

My downtime also included all email being bounced so if you sent me an email that bounced please resend it as I should now get it.

Because of the downtime I have had very little time to update the site this weekend. Most updates will now have to wait until next weekend.

Created a new web site - The Cricket Files and moved over 40 Mb of downloads on to it to reduce my downloads ratio. All links here on CricketGames.com should still work. If any don't please let me know.

If you are passionate about cricket and a good C++ programmer this could be the ideal job for you. If you are interested in this position please send details of your programming skills (CV), availability and cricketing knowledge. If you have written any cricket games (or other games) please send details. Do NOT send in samples of work (unless cricket games) until requested. Knowledge of 3D would be useful but not essential.

I am already working for Empire so can answer any questions you may have or forward them to the relevant people.

If anyone tried to read CricketGames.com earlier this weekend and got the 'this page is not available' message this was due to a major routing failure in the States (where the pages are located).

Hopefully by now everything is working. I have also discovered a program for publishing the site which hopefully means I will no longer have to rely on FrontPage. Have started making use of additional space now available to CricketGames.com by adding ICC files. Hope to make all ICC2 files available tomorrow.

Finally persuaded CI Host to create me a new account as the server I was originally allocated seems to be broken and they still have not fixed it. All this messing trying to get the site working means I have not had time to do any additions to the site. Hopefully the situation is now resolved and the pages will be stable. When I first moved to Web 2010 there were initial problems but once sorted the service was on the whole very good.

Well so much for the hopeful transparent change of servers. Web 2010 decided to nuke my pages and only after several emails and expensive trans-atlantic phone calls did they restore the pages which they claim I asked them to remove which is total rubbish. CI Host then decided to take technical support to the lowest levels possible by being totally incompetent and breaking my account for 5 days so I had no access to it. I dread to think of the phone bill for calls to their so called customer support as emails went totally answered. It is all very well for these American companies to offer toll-free support but that does not help foreign customers like me. Surely Internet companies should be able to handle things via e-mail! Even now the situation is not fully resolved and I'm not sure whether the Internic changes so that CricketGames.com points to CI Host rather than Web 2010 have been set in motion.

CricketGames.com has moved servers. Hopefully the move will have been transparent to most people. Web 2010 where CricketGames.com has been for the last year only provided 50Mb which was proving restricting. CI Host where CricketGames.com is now offers much more space and facilities which I hope to start taking advantage of soon. One of the consequences of the move is that the Guest Book has been cleared - maybe this is not a bad thing considering how inappropriate for this site recent entries have been.

Added a new CricketGames.com Shop that lists all the cricket games plus some books and videos you can buy over the net. This is as a result of getting lots of emails asking where to buy certain games often despite the link being on the relevant game page.

Finally got around to sorting through the masses of emails I had built up over the last few months. A lot of the Hints 'n' Tips and Wish Lists got rejected (especially for Cricket World Cup 99) as they were very similar to existing ones.

On the subject of emails the number of what I consider pointless/irrelevant emails are on the increase. Please read the Feedback section for more details of which emails I will ignore and why.

Due to the fact there are 2 Playstation games currently under development I have created a new Playstation Games section. I have split the Brian Lara Cricket and Shane Warne Cricket '99 pages into PC and Playstation versions. The Playstation games under development will appear in Games Under Development until they are released.

Happy New Year, Year 2000 but not Happy New Millennium (I refuse to follow the crowd and will celebrate the proper start of the millennium on 31st December 2000) to all readers of CricketGames.com.

According to the site stats there are on average 4000 pages requests each day and about 800 unique hits on this index page each day.

Winner of registered International Test Cricket for submissions during December was Shahid Anwar. To be considered for January see Help Wanted.
