    As of today the server responsible for generating screenshots is offline due to a failed motherboard. This server is not located in a datacenter (since the product has not yet officially launched) so I need to build a new machine for this. The parts are on order, I will post back here as soon as this is ready. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    the new Asus motherboard arrived DOA and has been shipped back to newegg... the replacement is already on the way via purolator!

    we'll have our screenshots back next week when the new board arrives.

    alright folks, the new screenshot API server is back online and seems to be working fine. I moved to a windows 7 environment and had to rebuild the database so its possible some API keys might need to be re-inserted... if you have any troubles let me know and I'll get it sorted right away.

    thanks again everyone for your patience.

    (sorry for my english)
    Thank you for having provided the service running.

    As for me it does not work, I do not know if it comes from my host, but when I try to generate the screenshots, I get an error loading the page.

    The script loads (long) and ends with a connection fails

    I'm getting black screenshots, do I need to re-enter my API key? If so, can you sent it to me in a PM? Thanks.
