Nintendo Pulling Previous Generation Wi-Fi Service May 20
A bit of sad news I don't enjoy having to pass on. Nintendo has posted an announcement yesterday
stating that they will be terminating the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection service for both previous generation consoles, Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS.
What does this mean? Basically, you will no longer be able to connect to others online to play games such as AC:WW and AC:CF/LGTTC -- or any other Wii/DS game after May 20, 2014.
The 3DS and Wii U connection service will remain operable (likely until at least next generation), and you will still be able to play your Wii/DS games with others on a local Wi-Fi connection.
We will discuss how this impacts ACC, but we will likely be pulling Friend Codes for all Wii/DS games following May 20, as a result of this announcement.

Nintendo Network Outages Reported
With a recent 3DS family software update that brough Miiverse to the 3DS platform, Nintendo has been hit with some network issues and outages
that affect eShop access and creation of Nintendo Network IDs (NNIDs). According to the linked article, increased traffic seems to be partly responsible. Nintendo is working to address the service issues. Nintendo Support is advising trying certain services at a later time if you are experiencing problems.

Thought I would post an update on where we are w/ recent ACC development, as we're making good progress w/ the next release that will be a few bug fixes from the last release, and several additional minor features.
First, we have just moved our first round of the next release to the beta site, so testing will begin on that. Most features have been completed for the next release, so it's just a matter of getting the tested, then we will move that release to the live site.
Second, for the past couple of months, I have been working on a new continuous integration process, and we have changed to a better branching structure -- which is geek-speak to say that:
- It is now super easy for us to get changes to our dev, beta, and live sites.
- We can now start working on the next release before we even move the current one live.
Probably the thing you guys care about the most, is that we can now start working on and testing the Bell Shop update, even before we roll out the next release.
So stay tuned for more updates on the next release, and the Bell Shop release that will follow that release.

Essie Stepping Down as Site Manager
Just to let everyone know, Essie
has asked to step down from her current role as Site Manager, and go back to being a Moderator. Essie
has been serving as Site Manager for almost two and a half years, and I certainly appreciate all she has done in her role. She has certainly been instrumental in many of the changes that have occurred during her time as SM.
We may or may not be refilling Essie's
role as SM, but for now, iolite
will continue to serve as ACC's Site Managers.

Regarding Issues Earlier
Just to keep you guys in the loop, I spoke with my colo provider, and it looks like they had some issues earlier today on their end that may have impacted performance on the site earlier today between 2pm and 5pm ACC time. They are looking into a long term fix, and are aware of it, so hopefully the issues will subside until then.
Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience.
