Out of the Blue

Well, if you are reading this, then I guess our efforts to get the site back online have been successful. It seems our present on Christmas Day was a catastrophic hardware failure.

Apologies for the downtime. And a HUGE thanks to Jon, Chris, Vaughn and the other folks at UGO for helping out in our time of crisis.

Hopefully it wasn't too costly.

Welcome back. I guess that's the only day in the database for which you get "No news postings found for this date"

Yeay! Welcome back! Sorta…everything does not seem perfect yet, and UGO still appears to have a lot of down servers still.

Though, isn’t it funny how when Blue is down, or late in updating, all the other “popular” game news sites seem to update a lot later than usual as well? Hmmm…
And no, I am not just talking about now and around Christmas, it is a pattern that I have noticed all year round. *jar jar* mesa think they might all wait on Blue to do the hardwork */jar jar*

But, thanks to those guys that got it back up, here is to hoping they (and Blue) at least got to enjoy some down time on Christmas day!

Glad it's back up. I was reading forum posts when it crashed... Thought my internet connection went down. Shows how reliable this site always is otherwise.

Had me worried.

I was searching the news looking for an article about

"Gamers news site blues news raided by police. Servers confiscated on claims the site is providing training to terrorists via instructions and information on violent video game war simulators.

Government officials say they suspect that "blue" of blues news is actully Osama Blue Laden. He has shaved his mustache and beard down small as a disguise. They also have information that his parents or grandparents may have been communists. The McCarthy files on these people are open to interpretation.

Police are now vigourously searching for the gang of known terrorist associates of Blue Laden. NIN, WarHawk and Halsy are some of the aliases used by these haters of freedom."

What's wierd is that Blue posted his OotB at 4.14, and seven (count 'em) minutes later nin was posting here... sounds like he was watching to see when the shouting and swearing calmed down. Or else he's been hitting Refresh all day ;P:)

Yeah a lot of the UGO ad servers are down. Which is worse - whereas before Firefox blocked the ads, now it tells me it can't load them, even if it wanted to

I didn't realise just how addicted I was either...

(Is the post numbering messed up for anyone else?)

EDIT: It appears the timestamps got messed up for the first 7 posts and they're sorted by date. As far as I can tell...

Oh man. Ego +5. Someone mentioned my website.
It can be that Blue's News Refugee Camp when the server goes down. No message boards yet but I plan on setting them up sometime in the near future.

Good thinking... problem was, all the addresses for these things were on old news posts :).

Bronco's website is http://www.braglio.com .
