I ALMOST DIED

How was Des Moines, Clockwork?

Site's pretty slow this morning, is something amiss?

Hey now. I just came back from Des Moines and sure, my soul is a bit more dead now but it was a perfectly servicable... thing. It was a thing that happened.

No, something's amrs., thank you very much.

Myth, I think you just tagged yourself: Mr. Something.

So how long was it out for this time? It was down for me since I turned on my computer this morning around 8 EST.

Down since at least 6 EST.

Been down for me since 8 BST, so about 7 hours. On the upside, I'm at work, so my productivity has quadrupled.

That's insane, It was down when I first got up, but was back up within a few minutes. I hardly thought it was worth posting in this thread over. That's some seriously good timing on my part.

Down from (GMT +1) 9AM until 4PM, practically my entire work day. I've surfed Wikipedia instead

My connection was refused for an hour through Firefox, but Chrome was fine logging in while Firefox was still being a jerk.

I sat down for breakfast ready to read this morning at 5:45 EST, and it was down then.

M-M-M-M-M-MONSTER downtime.

All you people keep almost dying. How long do I have to take GWJ down to finish you off?

Needless to say, I haven't edited any articles yet this morning.

You people don't like articles on the front page, do you?

My experience is that they do not.

Wait, unless they just don't like mine!

Wait, there's articles on the front page? When did this happen?

An, The, A - I see them all, from time to time..

The front what now? Is that where you pick Games or Everything Else?

It's that page with the "Recent Posts" link when you first get on the site.

You don't just go straight to your tracker page?

Thank goodness it was back up by the time I got to work!

Yeah my bookmark is my tracker.

And I was on the site somewhere after 3am eastern and it stopped responding. Assumed it was the nightly maintenance which usually happens around that time and went to bed.

Did they get hit by IPV6 day test?

I do occasionally check for articles, specifically the Fringe Busters stuff.

I for one eagerly await more writeups on WoW, Rock Band, and being old.

This, plus Rabbit and Momgamer stuff about being a parent.

Down from 9AM until now (GMT +1). I had to actually work this morning *shudders*

9AM there would be, I think, 3AM here then. The site always goes down around 3AM here. It's regular maintenance or something, but it seriously happens really often.

How people haven't noticed the regularity is beyond me
