Dirt is allowed, Kobra would be allowed back (he was on a suspension for a while), but U2K will have to push his Dreamcast agenda somewhere else.

I really hope that Rip is not as miserable right now as I suspect he is.

Although I really should rejoice in the 300% traffic spike (meaning 3 or 4 people) it's given my blog.

Actually, there's a part of me that thinks that Rip is enjoying spring break, sipping on an umbrella drink and occasionally checking this thread to cackle and say "DANCE, pathetic junkies, DANCE for me!"  Then he's going to test out what OO users would tolerate if it would make the server come back up.  "Well, we're back up, but the server crashes unless I use this hot pink theme and the embedded Disney music."  "Sorry, there's nothing I can do about the gay porn ads at the top of every page.  My, yes, they are rather explicit, aren't they?  I haven't seen one that big since the last time Trent tried to figure out how to post a picture."

I spoke with Rip and he's doing fine.  Tired, but fine.  I guess the majority of his business is not the hosting part and that's all that's down/  So it's a PitA but he's not losing his life's savings.  He's on about 8 hours sleep and said he'd stop by to post the link to his camera so we can watch and be sure he's working.

I think the situation can best be explained by the final scene between Bodhi and Agent Utah.

I didn't ask for an ETA. He did say he had had 8 hours sleep over the weekend though.   icon_wink  I figured he was going to be stopping by to give an ETA.  Thankfully I'm training people today so my online time is 5 minutes here and there.

Well, as I said before - you guys are welcome to settle in for as long as needed.  I'm sure Rip is performing the exorcism on your server as quickly as possible.

Meh.  OO is getting ready to update to phpbb3 at some point.  Maybe when Ron updates GT. slywink  But seriously Gedd has some goodies in store.  Rip was a bit disappointed that this didn't happen next weekend though as I think he has a nice new servermagig for SloO to live on.  It would have been nice to come back with a vengeance.   icon_biggrin


Edit to say, my meh was not directed at GT.  I like SMF a lot.
