    Server downtime

    That was quite the downtime. Is everyone ok? Anyone injured?...

    I'm okay. Pulled a muscle due to a minor error exercising with weights. No relationship between that and the server down time though.

    Did someone trip on the server power cord?
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    If I seem grumpy or unhelpful in reply to you, or tell you you need to demonstrate more effort before you can expect help, it is likely you deserve it. Suck it up, Buttercup, and read this, this, and this before posting again.

    Without this site, I am nothing T_T

    I literally had nowhere else to go. Sure, there's always GameFAQs but that site can't even begin to compare to this.

    John, you need to find some way to broaden your horizons.

    Hardly any other forums are as quick as this. I can go to the CUDA boards but they're slow. GameFAQs' social boards are usually full of trolls or children who I don't feel like arguing with all the time.

    This place is full of people who are intellectually stimulating and respond quickly. We enjoy debating, standing up for what we think and believe in. This is a tight-knit community that is actually helpful. It's a good place to be.

    I suppose there's always Reddit but eh, I don't like the way that site does conversations and quoting.

    You could have visited Illogicopedia. It's one of the few sites where people know whats the true epitome of art. "tight-knit community" totally applies too.

    Hmm... you are right. They are totally tight-knit.

    Aha! Obviously, the downtime was all your fault!

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Personally I blame those upstart F5 buttons for not doing their job when told!

    John, there are horizons offline too. Not all means of interaction involve transistors.

    Yes but you haven't lived until you've dated a field effects transistor, with just the right doping.

    Girls, hopefully without too much doping, are much more interesting on a date than FETs. If less predictable.

    Honestly grumpy, have you ever seen the legs and the nipple on an FET? There's just no comparison!
