I ALMOST DIED

In all fairness, it was down longer than normal. I usually hit the site for the first time at around 5:45 AM EST, which is shortly after I get up every day. This morning, it was down.

If you lot would just hurry up and die, I could let the site have better up-time numbers.

It goes down right around 12:30 Pacific, 3:30 Eastern, every day. It's down for about a half an hour. I figure that's probably when they take backups.

Yup. 12:30-1:00am is my No-GWJ Time. Kind of a shame because when I was going to school that was right in the middle of my GWJ Time.

IRC is always there for you.

I've learned to not try to visit GWJ in that 12:30-1:00am Pacific gap.

After I move, though, that'll get pushed into later in the night! Woohoo!

Yeah, the backups take a while, but Jeff is ginning something up I hear. It might be gin.

Mmmm, bathtub GWJ backups.

That's my prime now that I am on the midnight shift. If only we could distribute the site or have a backup server to take over hosting while one goes down.

I FELT THAT ONE

Was I supposed to? I just kept hitting refresh for an hour and caught up on Twitter.

There there.... [*gentle pat on the back*]...there there.

So what company is hosting GWJ? So I avoid crossing paths with them in future.

If this keeps up, *Legion* may need to go see Elysium's surgeon.

I can no longer get my fix while at work, I get home and nothing..DON'T DO THIS TO ME!

I think GWJ runs on a Linode server, so the downtime could be Linode's fault, or it could be something wrong with whatever software is running in GWJ's image. No easy way to tell without more info.

Eh I just wasted time in a different way, clearing the pile games.

You're supposed to clear those? I've been doing it wrong then....

Sure, if you can call that "living."

I had Big Darryl with me. It counts.

Hooray!

Did the site just have a great big reset of something, I'm seeing hundreds of unread posts in threads where I was the last poster.

Same here. It's like the Calamity.
