We have to wait for Brian Wong to fix it. Some old GPLers might remember his name as he used to build it up with Uwe Schuerkamp.

Out of interest does anyone know the technicalities of setting up a race list server, or know where to find some info? Might be good to have a back-up.

Seems to me all it is doing is holding a list of races, although it could be more complex then that as I'm no IT wizard.

Is there s.th how we can improve the situation for the future? A backup system?

@vosblod: same idea at the same time. Frightening :)

How long did we wait for the Sportscars? It hasn't been down long in GPL time but it feels like it has been gone for months  :o

I remember Brian. He was a nice guy.

I sure miss GPL rank. I haven't had the urge to hot lap or race much since it's been down.  :idunno:

I've been working away trying to gradually tweak my setups, and so far I have 9 new and 13 improved GT times queueing to be uploaded. But it is starting to get a little discouraging after so long, especially without any information.

I´ve also been filling my GT monster rank and it´s not so much fun now that you cannot compare your times with the others. It´s a pity that GPLRank is down especially now that we have a new GT rank.  :(

Without GPLRank, this could be the end of GPL as we know it...

well if it's a hardware issue, i've got an oldish ibm x335 dual xeon raid0 u320 scsi server sitting here collecting dust. should do well enough for a database of the size i'm thinking we're dealing with here - might be useful as a backup?

If you know the benchmarks, for the moment I guess there's still definitely something to aim for.

Even if it comes back up though, GPLRank won't last forever, so be sure to save the most important results lists for yourself. I always did, because you can never trust servers to stay up.

Regards, Rudy
(GPLRank: -40)

Exactly, and for those who may have missed it, Darrens spreadsheet is perfect for keeping track of how you are going, especially with the rank site down.

I'm going to have to look into getting MS Excel
I would hate to see GPLRank go away, because I think that could kill GPL
While there are still GPL leagues out there, I think the "Hotlappers" and the chase of the "Rank" have kept it alive all these years.

I promes my self to keep GPLing till I reach the 77 greens (the seven 67s cars on the 11 papys) with the restrict to try one of them just on an offical race of any league.
I have just near 40 of them.
