Into the Black

A hearty thank you to Frans for his hard work at piecing the site back together after our hard drive crash. We think everything is back where we left it, and all the static HTML stories that were posted during the outage are now in the database. Here's a big thank you to Frans for his efforts, and to all of you for your patience and encouragement during the downtime.

Link of the Day: Chèvres en équilibre - goats balancing on a flexible steel ribbon. Thanks nin.

R.I.P.: Devo guitarist Bob Casale dies at 61. Thanks Neutronbeam.

Just you. Only the drives were replaced.

Kudos from Blue and you lot, which I appreciate. And satisfaction from completing the job.

The forums going down really makes you appreciate them that much more. I think i didnt spend 1/100th the time on the site w/o the comments being up, just glanced at the headlines and off i went..

Thanks Frans!

I noticed the same with my browsing habits. Once I looked over everything briefly, I ended up moving on...the community is part of the character of the site.

Hey hey! Welcome back! I'm guessing you've been turning the air Blue lately.

Thanks Frans!

By the way, I quite liked the temporary design. The only thing I missed was being able to check for updated .plan files...

What a brutal few days. I don't post a lot but suddently I wanted to post all over the place and couldn't! Comments go down same week as a big Thief gameplay trailer, same week as Irrational bites the dust ... I was jonesin' to read some comments to see what I think about it all. If I didn't know better I'd say Blue staged these little outages to make us appreciate him more. Mission accomplished! Well played sir. Well played.
