In case you’re noticing (MASSIVE) site problems, you’re not alone. The site is running crazy slow, and isn’t loading half of the time. Both of these things suck.

The timing, of course, couldn’t be any worse, what with the new features going up today. Just know that I’m doing my best to get things back under control (but there’s only so much I can do). I’ll let you know when I know more about the problem.

Sorry, chums.

    Way to break the internet, Ace.

    Trying to roll things back to how they were before this outage occurred, which means the new message board and commenting features have gone by-by for now (and so, too, went all my work).

    Still trying to figure out the problem. I’m very sorry.

    • Dan0mite

      I expect a full refund.

  • Toosh

    No need to apologize, Ace. We all know the Internet can be frustrating at times.

  • TWC

    Hey, at least it’s an off day!

  • al

    you dont have to didnt do anything wrong…

  • Ol’CharlieBrown

    Just brought up the site with no problems. It was my first try. Maybe everything is running smoothly again!

    • Ace

      It’s not. There is intermittent success, and then miserable failure. It’s virtually impossible for me to create new posts right now.

    I think BN just went on the DL.

    • TWC

      Right, but just wait ’til next year. THEN this blog will be really awesome!

      • Michigan Goat

        Good job TWC, I knew if I’d set it up you’d knock them down

        • Caleb

          Well played gents!

          • TWC

            Appearing nightly! TWC and MichiganGoat! Two drink minimum.

            Remember to tip your waitresses, folks.

              Ah the Bleacher Nation Club where every night is ladies night, and Friday night is the amateur “She-View” lingerie contest. Come on down… Ian your band need a gig?

              • Ace

                Ian’s band would almost certainly terrify me.

                • TWC

                  Have you checked out his stuff? They’re really good. I’m not sure that the TWC & MG comedy hour could keep up… maybe we’d need to participate in the lingerie contest, too.

    At present, it appears that the second worst possible outcome is occurring. The worst, of course, would be the problem persisting.

    The second worst, it appears to be clearing up on its own with no discernable cause (or solution should it occur again).

    It was the porn that gave his comp. A virus and traveled it’s way here

    Totally random, but, Kyle – if you’re reading – I tried to respond to your email, but it bounced twice. Didn’t want you to think I ignored it.

  • Ace

    And now, after all that, it turns out it was a server issue. Glad I tore my hair out trying to fix things around here for nothing.

    That said, it provided me some clarity on the appropriate next steps for this place. I hope status quo is all right with you for a little while longer.
