MaePPV Incident Summary

Site News

As some of you have noticed, my SecondLife “web 2.0”-style video sharing site, MaePPV, has been down for a few days.
Here’s my summary of the incident.

Site News

When Google made me accept their new license agreement, I happened to notice in it that they have AdSense Video now. Curious, I decided to look into that.
Basically what happens, I put an applet here which plays random YouTube videos, and they pay for it. I’m including one in this post. If it does well, it might become a permanent fixture. If not, it’ll vanish into the old posts archive, never to be seen again (except by spambots).
As always, 50% of any revenue this generates goes to charity.

I am seeing one problem right off though… it’s slightly wider than this column. 🙂

Site Deactivation

Site News

As some of you noticed, Hostmonster deactivated my account around a week ago, for having files on my account not complying with their terms of service.
After several back-and-forth helpdesk tickets where they searched my files for more things they didn’t like and I removed them, finally things are back up and running.
In other news, the ad on the left for them has been removed, as I would no longer personally recommend their hosting service.

Bored? Try this…

Site News

These have been around for a bit, but I haven’t mentioned either publically. I’ve added two other sites to the Maeyanie.com network, both online games.

For those who just want a simple browser-based game, or for those who remember the old BBS game Tradewars fondly, I now have a game of Alien Assault Traders running.

Or, if you prefer a nice pretty 3D graphical game, I have a Lineage 2 emulated server running as well. Don’t worry, I’m using the latest L2J emulator, which works with an unmodified client you can get from the official site, so it’s completely legal.

Both are 100% free, though donations are always welcome. As with all my sites, half of the money from advertising clicks and sales will go to charity.
