Are you being servered?

*mops brow* For those of you lucky to have missed it, ‘Shouting etc etc’ had another outage, lasting nearly a day. Well, it was more of a deep hiccup. The main page was all screwed up, as some bollocky server error had occurred. We seem to be back to normal now, thankfully! Unfortunately though, I was in the middle of writing a lengthy post when everything went pear-shaped, and I dinna get a chance to save it. It was literally one of those things where it’s like ‘check me out I’ve been typing for half an hour straight without saving once and o shit something’s gone wrong and aaah my file it has disappeared into the very ether forever.’ Fuck. O well, I still have a third of it on my Treo, so I’ll just have to work from there…
Watch this space! Well, not this space, but that space. You know.

    That is a darling 404 message now, isn’t it? 🙂

    I was afraid some ne’er-do-well had hacked the site! I suppose a cantankerous contraption is a better reason. At least there’s no malice behind that. Unless of course, the machines have become sentient. Then we’re all doomed.

    Hyde-chan –
    You are not to blame! For that error, anyway. 😉
    I had actually forgotten all about that pic of 404-tan, so it was a bittersweet surprise seeing it!

    ButtonJessie –
    Also good: ‘I say!’ Then you raise your eyebrow, and your monocle falls into your shandy. 🙂

    Mahtek –
    404-tan is saying something like, ‘I can’t find whatever you’re looking for.’ I’ve really got to have someone with more knowledge of Japanese check that out…

    And if the machines finally became sentient, I’d think ‘Shouting etc etc’ would be one of the last sites they’d hack, all things considered. 🙂

    Shandy! *snort* I find that when ones monacle drops out the best thing to do is twiddle ones moustache as a destraction while one fishes said monacle out of ones drink.

    How can I change my avatar? The current default is reminding me WAY too much of my recent dental surgery!

    HUMPH! so what am i to blame for then? Anyhoo, i can’t remember what i was going to say, oh well. Hyde x

    ButtonJessie –
    Ohhh, so my default Doll avatar isn’t good enough for you, eh? Starting next year, those will get swapped out once a week — I have fifty-two of them.
    In the meantime, get yourself round to Gravatar, and register to make a Gravatar of your very own! They’re lovely, now that they actually, y’know, function.

    And I should hope that you don’t have a moustache to twiddle.
