I cried the whole time BN was down, including the time that only the comments were down. Then I got paranoid when I forgot Steam's weekly maintenance downtime, I thought there was a major DDOS going on.

Blues down + Steam down = No reason to live.

Girls?
Pizza?
Girls who eat pizza?
Girls who BRING pizza?
Games?
The Dutch winning 21 out of 30 speed skating medals?

I mean, come ON! There's PLENTY of reasons!

Ah, well -- since I have at least half a brain, I didn't buy that -- so I didn't notice.

The toughest non-game outage evar!

It was still shorter than EA's outage, and at 1/100th the resources at that.
There was an EA outage? I never noticed.

I was seriously going into withdraw. Was very close to emailing Blue and asking if we were talking days, weeks, or what, but was trying to be nice and supportive.


Couldn't you have just rolled down your van's window and yelled across the street while Blue was shoveling? Drummer

Hahahahahaha. Jeraxle wins.

Blue could probably charge just for making comments and be earning big bucks.

BTW (now that I have space to bitch) the bookface page for Blue's has more readers (2201) than the twitter account(1492), but (most) updates were going on the twitter account only...wazzupwithdat?


i'd see posts like the Irrational one, and feel like a mute. Comments really make this site special.
