Then there was 10...

Posted November 26, 2006

Finally got all the UB plug ins I could find and installed R10 this weekend. All is running fine and is ready for any users who have made the switch. Some plug ins are gone from the 9.x days so be sure to check the FAQ page for any you may be using.

Thank you for using RenderKing.

Email Issues...

Posted January 9, 2006

Well, I'm not sure the cause - but my ISP that handles my email in California has has three outages in the past couple months - under normal "issues" or maintenance an hour here or there is actually pretty common - the past outages being the apparent result of deluges of SPAM and other nastyness... These past couple outages have been a bit more extreme - this one beginning this morning i'm gussing about 8am and still not able to receive any email. I can send and log into my webmail so it appears to be isolated to the pop server... so if you've sent me any email - I hope to receive it with no issues when the pop server comes back up - if I appear to not respond - I may not have been able to receive your email so please accept my apologies and if it is an emergency you can email me at I will be evaluating and possibly changing ISP's as this may become a difficult thing to operate around - I will determine that in the near future and there should be no noticible change to any users.

There are some new plugins coming for RK as soon as I can get a few uninterrpted hours to get them installed, one I did get installed in the interim is the new HAIR module from Maxon. Please check the FAQ pages for specific details on any other new service additions...

Thank you for using RenderKing.
