Dragons Online! is now mobile phone ready

Just to let everyone know that Dragons Online! is now mobile phone ready!

What does this means? If you use your mobile phone (iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, Nokia N-series, etc) to surf here, a simple and fast design will be used instead so Dragons Online! will load fast on your mobile phone (and save data charges for you at the same time). All these are automatic so there are nothing to configure or change on your mobile phone.

Give it a try and you should see a mobile version of Dragons Online! like the screenshot below:

Please do let me know if it doesn’t work on your mobile phone and I will see what I can do.

The Baden-Powell Story

Want to know more about our founder but reading books will put you to sleep? Why not read the story of BP in a comic-style book. See below for the link to the ebook!

Website upgraded

Just a note that the website has just been upgraded. Everything still looks and works the same but as I do not have time to do a complete check, certain sections of the website might be “broken”.

If you do spot something that is not right, please drop me a comment and I will get it fix asap. Thanks!

Internal Server Error

Last night (and a few other times recently for the past 2 weeks), the website have been slow and not accessible at times. During this times, you probably have encountered the “Internal Server Error” message. This happened again yesterday and was highlighted to our technical support team and this is what they replied.

It looks like the load on your server has spiked and is slowing down/breaking services. We have an admin looking at it right now.¬† As soon as we isolate the source of the load, we’ll address it and things should resume normal function. Our admin team is aware of the server’s recent outages and are working on preventing them from reoccurring. Thanks a ton for your patience.

Hopefully, the source of the problem can be located and fix soon.

Meanwhile, I have added a link on Facebook (under the Boxes tab) for everyone to check if the site is indeed down or not.

Scouting for Boys on BBC

Found a documentary on Scouting for Boys, featured on BBC via YouTube. Quite interesting to watch but it will take a while of your time. The video is broken down into 6 parts as shown below.

Enjoy!
