Server outage

Postby Pyrrho » Fri Oct 03, 2014 10:44 am

The problem was a faulty memory module in the AE-35 unit. Pixy fixed it.

I did nothing, which is my usual approach in matters of this sort.

Nor did I, but I'm fuming right now because my Comcast connection has been down for over an hour....bastaaads! (having to use my precious Verizon data allocation for this).

Hooray for Pixy!

Wait, there was an outage? I've been here for nearly seven hours now, I didn't notice a thing. :shock:

I read "Server outrage" and immediately thought "Good thing we didn't mention the dirty fork!"

Was the outage linked to my Atari Jaguar not working as well?

...Oh wait, that never worked anyway. As you were.

When these sorts of things happen, I typically just blame gremlins.

Just an FYI..... I just now got a whole mess (mess = about 8 or 10 or 12) old emails from topic post notifications....probably the ex-lax hit and the email system has now purged itself. ;)
