As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I have a friend who had some surgery when he didn't have medical insurance. And no job. Basically, he started getting bills and was/has been unable to pay them as he is studying and got a meager part-time job a few months after the surgery. The loan was sent to a bill collections agency and he's been getting repeatedly called by them (a few times a week), and got a message today from them that basically said this:
"I'm giving you this final call regarding this important business matter. I need you to call me back by 5 PM before proceeding further."
Now, he's not trying to avoid the bill but he definitely does not have the means to pay it. To me, this call sounds too vague to be anything but a "call us so you can pay us." Anyone run into this before or can give advice as to what he can do in this situation?
