    Xlink Kai has lost support of Planex

    This is from May but I just found this thread in the Xlink Kai forums now. Xlink Kai has lost support of Planex which apparently was a big part in keeping Xlink Kai running. Sounds like Xlink Kai is still up for now, but wonder what this will mean for the future of the program.

    http://www.teamxlink.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=43901
    I was notified earlier this month that Planex has elected to discontinue its support of the Team XLink project and XLink Kai services. Though this is disappointing news, such business decisions are unavoidable and we remain grateful to Planex for the support they have shown us over the past six years.

    As a result of this change, some adjustments to our infrastructure have been implemented: all Japanese Orbitals have been removed and the main site has been migrated to a new server provided by SgtLegend. Future changes may be required including limiting access to Kai services by console, geography, or vendor hardware id.

    We hope to keep XLink Kai running for as long as there are players interested in our service but the reality is with no sponsorship, advertisements, or membership fees, all the hard costs for running Kai is currently being paid by Mods and Admins who already receive no compensation for their time.

    Well, that doesn't sound that promising. It was great while it lasts.
