RotW is now hosted by Quality Roms!

Thanks to the generosity of Lazlo, Quality Roms is now hosting Retro of the Week. What does this mean for RotW? Well, it means more up-time (my home connection is pretty lacking), and much more server load available (our old server was a Pentium 4 machine). Other than that, you should notice nothing different. Of course, please report any bugs you come across, I'd really appreciate it.

Also be sure to check out Argus' latest top 10, Top 10 NES games.

Look at them escape characters! Anyway hopefully you and Swift can put all that extra bandwidth to use!

>escape characters
It's because GoDaddy uses and outdated version of PHP. Which is also a security risk, so that's good.

Well if you don't like it you can go back to your own host. =(

Haha, it's fine. I'm just a little frustrated I have to downgrade all of my code from php5 to php4

Actually... I feel bad for not thinking of this last night, but GoDaddy does that weird thing where to use php5 you have to use the .php5 file extension. There may be a way around it, but you can keep your php5 stuff that way. I remember doing that when I was hosting McQuarrie stuff on Billysonicsite.

Man, I can't follow this conversation. I understand HTML (barely) and that's about it.
