My methods of moderation are quite different than the OO ruleset.

O Rly? 

unlike OO he actually pays his ninja hit squads. 

plus he talks pretty.

I really don't get the animosity between folks at GT and OO.  I read both boards, OO basically for the PC section and here for console section.

Ack.  Can we keep the grudge recaps over at popehat?  People have been coexisting so (relatively) well so far I'd rather not remind people why they hate each other.

Unless we're talking about reposting the illustrated Battle of Fucktard Ridge recap.  That never gets old.

Well if i'm always asking "Hey, will their be a  PC version comming out?" they may start  icon_biggrin

Is it that hard to redirect the OO page to a single page that just states "hold on folks were not gone just broken" Then an update now and again?

The website for his own business is still down with no redirect.  I don't think OO is a high priority at the moment. slywink

I think the fact that nothing is back up (even a "we're working on it" page) after 2 weeks is a pretty good indication that it's been nuked from orbit.   I've been around about half a dozen boards that went through similar nukings, and not one of them ever ended up coming back.

I'll be pleasantly surprised if it turns back on, but I highly doubt it'll happen at this point.  My guess is that OO is gone for good...which would really suck.  frown

Who owns OO, anyway?  Is it Rip?  Just wondering.

This is officially a cluster(beep).  Even if it does come back up, you have to wonder about what the health of the community will be.  People move on, develop relationships on other boards, etc.

This is Outage Day 13.  As one of the original vOOlunteers who spent his time lending a hand at that site, I'm questioning my own motivations for returning to the scene.  I know that the current limitations of that forum software are going to be a major hurdle made more difficult to overcome after seeing some greener grass in other places.

Well I hope it comes back, GT is websensed at work and work is where I do all my heavy forum posting.  You can't expect me to post lots and lots on my own time!  Quality will suffer!  Won't somebody please think about the websensed?!!!??

From looking at it on the net it doesn't get good reviews much.

http://www.yelp.com/biz/barking-crab-boston

Pretty mixed reviews. Probably depends on what you're looking for. Fine dining, it's not. Fresh seafood in a funky waterfront setting, it is. There is surprisingly little competition for that in Boston, and the few waterfront places I've been to are severely overpriced tourist traps. I haven't been to the Crab, so I can't offer an opinion of my own. FishPants liked it. A guy named FishPants must know his seafood, wouldn't you think?

Here's the lowdown, and yes I love my seafood (and cook a lot of it myself, usually restaurants don't get it right as far as I'm concerned!):

1. The lobster is a standard lobster. Nothing fantastic, about $75 for a 2lb lobster. Steep price for a plain steamed lobster.
2. The mixed crab bowl was freaking fantastic. Lots of crab, different kinds (King, snow, and some Jonah crab claws which was a new one for me). Wow. All of it so sweet.
3. The calamari! MY GOD! I had this the last night in town, and it's a good thing. I would have had that every meal of every day otherwise! Sliced (really thin) jalapenos and a spicy aioli sauce. Damn.
4. Fried oysters I really really liked, my wife was so-so on them. Personal preference I guess.

Oh and the clam strips down at Castle Island were pretty fantastic (Sullivans).

Ok it's been about two weeks now no?

If someone other than RIP has ownership of the domain, and Gedd can find a backup; my offer stands to get this thing running on my VPS.. I just need to know some stats on total install base size; and average monthly bandwidth -- That way I can ensure I have the right plan to get it up and running.

It's a standing offer, and my email is fishpants AT gmail dotcom. Feel free to drop me a line if you guys want; I'd *really* hate to see OO disappear like GG.. Especially when I have a fancy shmancy vps sitting largely idle that I use for a family photo album (yah, I'm a dork.. suck it.).

My sig is actually from 2004 when GG was in a similar state.  It has no direct correlation to current events...  I should probably change it. 

I just meant that if NavigatorHosting and its customers were a priority, things would be occurring in a fasion dissimilar to current events.  Say, some sort of customer update.   saywhat

This is crappy but it is not LaPorte II.  A couple of us have spoken with Rip and he has told us each that he is working on it but that the other part of his business is higher priority and that he's a bit stuck on some things.  Still, this isn't good and I would favor moving the forums to new servers and would chip in a sum to help costs if need be.  The lack of communication has been... well I'll just end the post here but I'm quite disappointed.   icon_confused
