Out of the Blue

Something went amiss on the server at some point, causing the forums and other sub-pages to misfire, though the maIn news page still worked. Apologies for that. Frans was unavailable this morning, so I took the brute force approach and rebooted the server, but that only made things worse. Frans has fixed things up once again, and hopefully I haven't screwed up something else with my ham-fisted approach to problem solving.

Ham-fisted Links: Thanks Ant and Mike Martinez.
Play: Creeper World Training Simulator.
Links: 73 Year Old Has Wrecked Over 10 Exotic Cars. Thanks Digg.
Stories: Thousands shun colour television. Thanks Digg.
Never-before-seen 'Star Trek' pilot found.
Science: Koalas 'could face extinction'. Thanks Boing Boing.
Images: Who needs modern war when there's Modern Warfare 2. Thanks Digg.
Media: Extremely lucky knife throw in Modern Warfare 2. Thanks Ralph.
Top 10 Beards in Gaming.
Follow-ups: For Marijuana, a Move Into the Open in a Ski Town. Thanks j.c.f.
The Funnies: FoxTrot.

Thank Jebus our lord and saviour, our eternal battle with the dreaded and vicious dropbears is almost over. Our children will be safe from these foul beasts and can look forward to a future where the evil Koala species is but a distant nightmare to be featured on the odd magic the gathering card.

Remember, if it's not human, it's not genocide!

I'm wondering where this man news page is
Not man, main. And only the forums were affected, no other sub-pages.
I made a typo in the board.pl script and didn't notice the resulting error messages in the Apache log until my return a few hours later. Sorry again.

Colts can thank the paid off ref on that one That was a catch. Not sure how a ref on the back side of that catch that far away can call bobbling!

I thought it was a great game as well - just not so sure the refs should have stepped in at that point. That would hvae been over turned. Nice how they covered it with "please put 2.00 on the clock" so the booth couldn't review!!!!

What a dirty sport.....of course they all are now. Not one clean game in the whole damn lot. Hockey MAYBE - but not after the Gretzky thing.

Sorry 'bout that. At 0736 this AM I posted in the MW2 thread, then responded to my own post...didn't know that was the new shutdown sequence.

If that MW2 knife throw were on the PC everyone would be crying "cheater!!!"

WTF!? Does the guy record his game 24/7? HOW would you know to record at that moment?

God his movements are CRAp with that gamepad of his.

I don't think that rebooting a server is such a bad thing when you have no other option. You are too hard on yourself Blue.

As Louis says at the helicopter crash site:
"have you tried turning it off and on again?"
